Always I try to see the local spirit by venturing into the financial and commercial districts. Towering skyscrapers nd well-heeled locals abound in & around Kenyatta Avenue, definitely worth a stroll instead of the masai market!
Additionally the shops and restaurants off kenyatta along banda & Wabera Streets are good distractions..see photos
In december 1963 Jomo Kenyatta led the movement to Kenyan freedom ignited by the Mau Mau crisis. He died in 1978 but His legacy lives on in the name of his nation. The jomo Kenyatta mausoleum is right next to the Parliament grounds.
At the center of the administration enclave and near downtown is the landmark KCC bearing the name of the country and its founder, Jomo Kenyatta. Security is high around here but visits can be oragnised check locally during your visit.
