    The Market!

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You have to be careful here. At the end of the day it is a place of business and there is a high potential for pick pocketing and purse theft. So be careful where you keep your belongings and don't be afraid to be aggressive...but not overly aggressive!

    Unique Suggestions: Keep your eyes and ears open and make sure you keep your belongings close to you. Don't wear anything fancy, such as watches or jewelry becasue those are targets of tourists!

    Fun Alternatives: the mall...

    A lucrative traffic is going on at the Nairobi N.P. Safari Walk.

    Even tough the price of a visit to this park is already high (20 $/pp), the KWS-personel inside the Nairobi N.P. « Safari Walk » (guides and cooperating guards) run a business in which the two cheetahs of the park can be hugged. For hard cash, tourists are allowed in the cheetah-cage for a «hug-session ». We had 2 cases on an ATC-Overland truck where one couple was forced to pay 1000 Ksh each, while 2 other couples were asked 4000 Ksh (!!!) each. This is negative for the credibility of the Kenia Wildlife Service but also for the safety of the visitors. The rudeness of the concerned guides and guards is stunning. A copy of this remark has been send to several travel T.O.’s, the KWS headquaters and the KWS customersservice. None of them replied. Rotation of the guards doesn't seem a sufficiant solution for the problem. Corruption is all over the place in Kenia.
