The City Square located in the heart of the city is surrounded by the Kenyan Parliament buildings, Nairobi Law Courts, Kenyatta Conference Center ( KICC) , the Holy Family Cathedral and the Nairobi City Hall. From the roof of the KICC, you can admire a superb view of Nairobi and its neighbors. You can plan to visit it as a part of a city tour and if you ever come to Nairobi one day, don’t miss it !


Located on a high altitude of about 1661 meters (5450 ft) above the sea level, Nairobi Kenya ‘s capital city has a year-round moderate climate . So, there is no bad time to visit . Of course, there are many things to see around : The Nairobi National Museum, the Masai Markets, the Bomas Cultural Center ,the elephant orphanage center, the giraffe center, and of course the famous Nairobi national park.


Just keep in mind to bring a sweater in your luggage even though you are in an African city. Because of the high altitude, it is sometimes cold in Nairobi !

I hope you’ve enjoyed reading this post. Thank you

  1. The rooftop view took my breath away. I have a friend who stayed there for a couple of years but I never got to visit them.
    I guess it’s not too late to plan a trip especially after reading this post. I’d also love to check out the Masai Market, my fashion forward friend always posts pictures on Instagram when she goes there.
    Great post!

  2. I visited Nairobi twice many years ago. The first time it was a really wonderful town, but later on it changed completely, not to the advantage. But looking your fotos it is now a big, but lovely city again.

    1. Nairobi is a city that is perpetually changing. Especially with the constructions of buildings.
      Sometimes, it looks lovely, sometimes it seems like it’s taking too much space. Hope you’ll visit again one day.


      1. Hapana? hmmm. The plot thickens as Sherlock Holmes would have said…
        My Swahili is scant (I’d wish I’d taken proper lessons then.) and rusty. The only person I exchange a word or two in Swahili is one of my cousins who was born in Nairobi. Older than me so I call him Mzee and he calls me “mtoto”. 😉
        So not diplomats. Hmmm. UN? (That’s about the same.) Give me a hint. Thafadali?
