07 Fun Things To Do In Nairobi

  1. See Interesting Animals at Nairobi Safari Walk
  2. The Nairobi Safari Walk is a conservation-based recreational facility like no other. Only 7KM from the bustling Metropolis, here you will find a sampling of what wildlife in Kenya has to offer.

  3. Shop at the Maasai Market The Maasai culture is perhaps the most renowned of Kenya’s ethnicity. As a tourist travelling within Kenya, buying a Maasai culture-based souvenir should, and will be one of the things you want to do. There is nowhere better than the regular open air Maasai markets held in Nairobi. These markets are nomadic and within them, you will find everything from local paintings, curios, drawings, wood carvings, jewelry and East African based Fabrics. However, you have to know where and when they will be held.
  4. Dine at the Carnivore The Carnivore Restaurant on Lang’ata Road is one of Nairobi’s, and indeed Kenya’s, revered open air restaurants. Dining here is an experience to treasure. The most outstanding aspect of this restaurant is not the fact that the ambiance is world class, but that you get to have your choice of game meat while enjoying that ambiance. Do you feel like having a bit of Crocodile? Maybe Ostrich or Zebra meat is more your style? At the Carnivore, you can have a taste of all these and many other game cuisines. You can also indulge in local and international beers while you are at it.

Additionally, you will find wonderful dining facilities, a beautiful botanical garden and eclectic shopping facilities.
