The Magical Kenya Tourism Ambassador and top international model Naomi Campbell surprised many after disclosing that she has had a home in Kenya for 20 years.
Campbell, who will be featured on Architectural Digest Magazine's May cover, opened her door to the world to showcase her beautiful luxurious house.
According to the model, she first came to Kenya in 1994 but fell in love with Malindi in 1999, leading to her purchasing a beautiful African home.
''Everything is under a Makuti roof so everything is open,'' she siad.
Her exquisite living room is big and has a mini swimming pool around. She and her guests always gather in the room before dinner and catch up.
The couch in the living room looks so comfortable as well, and the colour also looks very warm and welcoming.
''Most of the furniture is the workmanship have been done here in Kenya so we keep it local,'' she added.
Campbell also added pictures of two Kenyan champions who she says are her hero because they have carried the Kenyan flag internationally.
Her home has four pools, a spa and a gym area close to her spacious room. As for the spa, she says she recommends it to all her guests on the first day they visit so that they get to enjoy their sleep.
The house also has a gaming area upstairs where Campbell says she used to go and read. According to the celebrity, even when hosting lots of people, no one hardly notices everyone is always busy in their corner.
Her yoga station is also beautiful as it views the whole property from a landscape perspective.
Campbell also flaunted her breakfast area, which is completely different from the dining area. It looks like a restaurant based on how it is arranged and with everything wooden with an African touch.
She also debunked the myth that most people living outside the continent have about Africa.
''This is my go-to place of relaxing and completely shutting down. Kenya is like a natural gem. It has a safari. It has the bush, and it has the coast. It has all the elements. And people do not realise that. I love the Atlantic, but the Indian Ocean is better,'' she added.
YEN.com.gh featured the model when she was appointed as the Tourism Ambassador by Cabinet secretary, Najib Balala.
Campbell agreed to promote Kenya as a tourism destination following a weekend meeting with Balala.
She expressed her admiration for the improvement in the infrastructures on the Kenyan coast.
