Britain’s Naomi Campbell, Kenya’s new tourism ambassador, caused a surprise when she revealed that she has owned a beautiful home in the East African country for 20 years. The leading international model revealed that she first visited Kenya in 1994. But she confided that she fell in love with Malindi in 1999, which led her to buy a beautiful house in the Horn of Africa country.
Fashion legend, Naomi Campbell, 50, an internationally renowned model and style champion, was recently appointed as the new ambassador for the destination ‘Kenya’. The choice of her as ambassador for Kenya has been a controversial one since last January. A choice that is far from being the result of chance, since Naomi Campbell and Kenya have a long history.
Indeed, the style queen has fallen in love with this East African country, which has charmed her for decades, to the point that she has found a home there, as she owns a lush house. In an interview with Architectural Digest magazine, the Briton was shown walking around the villa, and was quick to confide her love of Kenyan-made furniture and artwork.
« Everything is under a Makuti roof, so everything is open, » she said. Her spacious and exquisite living room is bordered by a mini swimming pool, which is what makes it so charming. « Most of the furniture is made here in Kenya. Just to tell you how much I care about keeping this African environment natural, which I find myself in and enjoy, » she confessed.
In detail, Naomi Campbell’s home has four swimming pools, a spa and a gym, which adjoins her spacious bedroom. This shows how much the model loves sport, which allows her to maintain her ever-glowing figure. The house also has a play area on the first floor. This specific area also serves as a reading room for Naomi Campbell.
Made of wood with an African touch, the British star’s dining room has all the amenities and is set up like a restaurant. « This is my place to relax and shut down completely. Kenya is like a natural jewel. It has a safari. It has the bush and it has the coast. It has all the elements. And people don’t realise it. I love the Atlantic, but the Indian Ocean is better, » said the model.
It should be noted that Naomi Campbell also has a large breakfast room in her residence, nothing to do with the dining room. This jewel also has a magnificent yoga station, offering a view of the entire property.
