what to do in Nairobi

by IrenaR

Hi to all,
I’m traveling to Nairobi and I will be there few days only, so if you can suggest me must see places and good restaurants.
Thank you a lot:-)

Re: what to do in Nairobi

by Homanded

When in Nairobi, as part of our safari experience, we went to the Carnivore Restaurant:

http://www.africanmeccasafaris.com/kenya/nairobi/excursions/carnivore.asp

You will have a chance to sample local game and food. We highly enjoyed the experience.
Additionally, you can go to nearby Karen Blixen Giraffe Manor museum where you will see the endangered Rothchild Giraffe.
There are also various museums and malls in the area.

Personally, Nairobi wasn't a favorite of ours but, we're happy to say we were there.

Enjoy Kenya and it's amazing people!

*Helpful tip #1* Do NOT choose safari based on miscellaneous touts recomendations.

Re: what to do in Nairobi

Depending on whether you will travel on in Kenya or not you might take a trip to Nairobi national park. Getting on eye level with the giraffes at the Langata girafe center is always a nice thing, and then there is the elephant orphanage of Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. If you liked "Out in Africa", you might go to the Karen Blixen museum, and if you like museums, the new national museum is not bad after its reshape. All in all, Nairobi is not the greatest sightseeing place. if you are looking for good restaurants, other than the already mentioned Carnivore there is Furosato in Westland when you like Japanese, Zen Garden halfway between Westland and Gigiri for Asian fusion, Phoenician in Westland if you like Lebanese and Osteria or Il Divino in Kilimani for Italian/Mediterranean. For Indian food, Westland is the best place to explore, especially Haandi or Angithi are very good. And if you like to get a taste of African food, there are a number of good Ethiopian restaurants - my favorite is Habesha on Argwing Kodhek Road between Lavington and Kilimani. And for Seafood, unless you travel on to Mombasa and can try their restaurant there, I can recommend Tamarind in the city center

Travel Tips for Nairobi

No house numbers

by Alkitta

In Nairobi buildings have no numbers, so if you need to describe how to get somewhere, you either draw a map or explain that it's the little white building with a brown gate next doors to place X. I got so used to drawing a map every time I needed someone to come to my house. Don't worry, the streets do have names.

All the mail gets delivered to post office boxes.

TRAVEL INSURANCE

by greekcypriot

If you need medical care whilst in Kenya, it is best to be aware that medical providers may not accept payment through your insurance company. In these circumstances you will have to pay in full after your treatment and file a claim with your insurance company for reimbursement. Therefore you should have access to cash, either from a credit card or by wire transfer. If you need assistance contact the country's local embassy or representative.

To be compensated you must be treated by licensed medical personnel and provide your insurance company with proper documentation and receipts.

It is advisable to always ensure you have a comprehensive travel insurance policy which covers you for repatriation to your home country.

Salaries in Nairobi

by greekcypriot

I give some examples below:
A salary of a primary school teacher in Nairobi starts on around $130 per month.

The government set minimum wage varies by location, age and skill level; the lowest urban minimum wage in 2008 was around 7,500 shillings ($93) per month, and the lowest agricultural minimum wage for unskilled employees was around 2,500 ($31) shillings per month, excluding housing allowance.

A normal office salary would be around 150 - 250 $ - more if someone works for an intternational company, considerably less for people doing unskilled labor. Of course, there is also a well off Kenyan middle upper class making a good deal of money.

Goats along the Road

by glabah

There are grass median strips and roadside strips all over Nairobi. This is the case in most any city, of course.

The local residents have taken to grazing their animals along the roads in these large grass strips. This is understandable, and can be seen in many other countries.

What seems unusual to me is that here, in a fairly large urban area, the goats are simply allowed to run around on their own - without any apparent person looking after them.

Don't they disappear? Get stolen? Walk out into the busy street and get run over? Keep chasing after better grass, and eventually become lost?

I can't tell you how it all works or how the goats and their owners keep themselves sorted out. I can tell you that you will see them in many areas - except the core of downtown Nairobi.

This is just one of many interesting traffic features of driving in Nairobi, for those who have never experienced a city with this wide a variety of driving distractions.

As seen in the final photo (from the Kaster family collection), the goats find all sorts of castoffs to eat. Some of those discoveries don't bear thinking about.

Nairobi Arboretum

by Krumel

The Arboretum is a quiet tree park near the State House with lots of exotic trees shrubs within walking distance from the city centre. It’s a great place to hang out if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Nairobi for a while. During the day there are lots of people walking there, doing sports or just relaxing on the benches, so I felt quite safe.
