How come all your ratings were done more than 3 years ago. Do you have any current guests who love your services or this great service ended in 2006.

You need to be more specific with your question, eg name the establishment. When you ask a question from a tip, it goes to the Travel Forum and doesn't state the name. This is a member generated site, so maybe no one has written a review since then.

I'm confused...

I suspect the OP is talking to TripAdvisor and not to us.

I think they must have read a tip, and then clicked on the "ask a question" link in the tip. I guess the ratings were old and no one had rated later than 3 yrs ago for whatever (hotel maybe) they are asking about.

Ah, I see.

Travel Tips for Nairobi

Nairobi Train Station

by skatzcatz

Situated just off Haile Selassie Avenue the Nairobi Train station is where suburban and the train to Mombasa train station is caught. At times it becomes hectic with both fellow travellers and touts. I do however recommend a ride on a train, even if a local suburban one. Prices where very cheap.

KAREN BLIXEN'S MUSEUM
This...

by SirRichard

KAREN BLIXEN'S MUSEUM
This wonderfully pleasant Museum was the home of Karen Blixen (1914 to 1931) when she lived in Kenya. Yes, the one of the book/movie 'Out of Africa'. But even if you know nothing about Karen Blixen the museums surroundings, with a splendorous garden, deserve a visit by themselves.
For the ones who have seen the movie, note that there is a replica of the RCA Victor gramophone on which Streep/Blixen and Redford/Finch-Hatton played Mozart concertos, library shelves hold copies of Denys' books (each marked with a small brass plaque, DFH) and the lantern that she hung outside to let him know she was home.
The present museum site is at the heart of the larger coffee plantation run by Blixen between 1914 and 1931, in Karen Rd., (next to Karen College), in the Karen area. You can go there in bus n°24 from Moi Ave. Telephone: +254 (2) 88-27-79. P.O. Box 40658, Nairobi. Tel: 254-2-882779. Admission Charges: Non-Resident Adult: Kshs. 200

Welcoming Words

by greekcypriot

Karibu Kenya! which means welcome to Kenya (this phrase will be used often especially when people are introduced to you by your host).

Locals normally shake hands and say JAMBO (this is a swahili word which means hello).

Kenyans are warm and friendly people and would go out of their way to make you feel welcome in their homes and its only kind to take with you a gift whenever you go to someones house for the first time.

They will appreciate anything!!

Living standards

by croisbeauty

Local working class cannot afford high flat-rents in the city area of Nairobi, just a simple room with bathroom costs around 6.000 ksh, which is more than most of them earn per month. Therefore, they live or in the outskirts of Nairobi or, if very poor, in Kibera. My friend Francis, who work as the security guy, pays one thousand shillings per month for two small rooms in Kibera. I visited his "apartment" which has no power, no running water and no bathroom inside the flat. Such a rent is almost one third of his wages.
Francis spend small money for the food, eating twice a day only and equaly small money for the second hands cloths, which is the only cloths he can afford. He never attended theatre in his life and never goes to the bars or clubs which are inside the city area of Nairobi. On the other hand, Francis is very polite with good manners and really nice guy. When I asked him is he happy with his life, Francis confirmed telling me this, many people cannot afford what I have and not in Kenya only. Francis never visited coastal part of Kenya, never saw the ocean and it is one of his dreams. I gave him money to makes that dream come true and he was extremely happy and gratefull.

Middle of nowhere

by Icarus_Feather

So it was our last night and we had a beer or two with the boys. Four flights it took to get us back to Nairobi, flight two left us in the big open plains- think its called the serengetti.
It lands on a dirt strip, the tourists get off, climb into the waiting 4x4's and within 30 seconds they are gone. Like really gone, there are no roads, no signs, no shelter, no cloud cover; just the searing heat, approximately 37 dangerous species of animals and one mother of a hangover.
KEEP TO THE BEATEN TRACK WHENEVER POSSIBLE
