Kenya Nightlife

  • Hookahs & Hookers

    Alright so most of the nightclubs in nairobi have a certain percentage of working girls there. So it's unfair to only label Casablanca's as their hunting grounds. It just rhymes with hookahs, thats all.Also the reason they're there at any of the nightclubs is cause even nairobi is on the sex tourist's map.The place has a great arabian theme and the...

  • Best Cocktails in Nairobi

    One of the few places i saw in Nairobi with interiors that could be called modern and minimalist.The cocktails here are what it's all about.The crowd is mostly expat. The music on nights when are DJ's can be quite persuasive, on night with no DJ it can be background musicish which isn't necessarily a bad thing if u wanna just sit and have a few...

  • Nice but they might rip you off

    They are a restaurant by day which i haven't visited but i hear the food is good. By night it turns into a nightclub. With Thursday Nights being their big night.Been there in the nights on two occassions both times i had a weird experience. The location is nice and the place attracts a lot of crowd. Though the first time i was being incessently...

  • 4 Bars in one

    Perhaps one of the best places in Nairobi to be a regular. During the day you will come across working professionals who have come there with their friends or colleagues for some food and beers. There are over 4 bars here all themed differently, some posh, some sports bar themed and some specializing in live music.On the weekends they put up huge...

    Located on the first floor of what seems to be like a mall is Black Diamond. The quintessential Nairobi Nightclub experience.The place is packed with a good mix of locals and expats. The dance floor is indoor and seperated with huge glass doors.They have an outdoor area with tables and a separate Bar. The music is generally a ix of local songs and...

  • Great Nightlife

    The two Florida clubs are cool except they're full of pretty hookers lol. It kind of spoils the place so try some GREAt live music. My favorite place was the Pizza Garden in Westlands. While there, try the mix grill. I'll get the name later, but its fantastic. There are a couples places called Kengeles around. They always play great live music, and...

  • Arabian nights in Nairobi

    My favourite place to hang out when i lived in Nairobi. A stylish place, you can enjoy good Italian pizza, excellent strawberry daquari and shisha on huge bed size sofas in Lamu style while listening to music on the hit lists (which tends to tune into indian hits after about 2am!). The place also has an excellent restaurant next door and also an...

    At night the Mara comes alive. .....make a point of listening carefully and you will likely hear the sounds of the bush tell the story of whats going on!. Listen out for the cackle of a Jackal, the whopping of a hyena and the deep roar of the lion. If you are located near a forest area listen carefully for the cough of a Leopard as it moves through...

  • Liveliness all around

    During the week some bars look almost deserted, some of them even closed but on friday night everything changes drastically. On friday, bars are overcrowded by the both, locals and tourists, who come here for dancing, meeting friendsand and enjoying in inevitable Tusker, fine and not too strong local beer. If getting hungry, after dancing on a hot...

  • Local nightspot

    Great local bar and restaurant. Pool table and general socialising amongst the locals and tourists.As usual it's important to be aware of the local ladies looking to secure an evenings entertainment. Watch pockets and be assertive, this usually does the trick.A delight to meet a variety of people and enjoy an evening relaxing.

  • Dance the night through till dawn

    Great fun, great music, well organised nightclub. Diani Beach, just outside of the Sea Lodge and frequented by locals and tourists alike. There is a restaurant at ground level and a nightclub downstairs.

  • Crocodile feeding in Tsavo

    Ok, in the Bush there is not much you can do, as soon as the sun goes down, it tends to get very dark. If you are lucky you have a Camp with electricity - but mostly the light is barely enough to be able to read or write something. No TV, no Radio (except you took one with you).So what you do? Normally you gather around the Camp fire, look how it...

  • Hyena outside our tent!!

    For unparallelled spooky fun, spend the night in a tent in Kenya's Samburu N.P. The hyena calls from around your campsite while you feast on nyama choma- swahili preparation of roast meat on coals, are just the harbingers of an unforgettable night surrounded by a pack of hyenas rummaging through the left-overs of your dinner barely 15 yards away...

  • local bar

    this is in side the local bar with our friends from the beach, this night i think we was in there for a long time , and it was dark out side , so as we were walking to our hotel the streets were all lit with candels and little fires with people cooking on them, the smell is something you will renember, not a bad thing

    After the show we had our evening meal, there were tables ready for us and the men that greated us on arrival with the tourches were now stood around all the tables, they didnt say anything, the atmosphere was great, so different. The food was excellent, picture 2 show John enjoying a baby lobster and this was our starter. We drank wine from...

    This little guy has to sound the horn when coming in to the harbour. His horn is a big shell and the noise it made was amazing, so load.

    We originally book to do a evening boat cruise, but this was latter cancelled and so we choose to do the trip 'Mombasa by Night' which was excellent.We started the trip by driving towards Mombasa were we boarded a Dhow, on here we enjoyed complimentary drinks and nibbles whilst enjoying some local music, these guys were ace.

  • Based in the Hotel

    Most of the night life is based around the hotels, a few people we spoke with got taxis in to the near by village, but to tell you the truth were a bit unsure about going out late at night. The hotel put entertainment on every evening, things like karaoke, affrican dancers and acrobates. The hotel have its own animation team which get people...

  • Florida 2000 is SEEDY..

    Florida 2000, known for it's good music, is also home to con artists, drug dealers, and lots of local prostitutes trolling for desperate white men. The other people I know who have gone there have reported being harrased by prostitutes or by their pimps. Because of this, it's probably better to avoid the place and go to other local hangouts in the...

  • Sultry & Sweatty

    Packed with drunken locals and hungry prostis, sweatty hot and dripping sultry, luke-warm Tuskers bought from a bar that was caged to protect the bartender from the customers. The people watching was of me and my buddy. Things grew interesting when I took a step back and inadvertently knocked a beer out of a prosti's hand. My immediate offer to...

  • Nocturnal Game viewing

    Many lodges put out food for the nocturnal species, such as this civet, and one even placed a lamb in a tree for the leopard. Other lodges have flood lit water holes where game come during the night to drink. The lodges will wake you on request, you just have to specify which animals you want to be woken for. Also available is a night drive. We...

  • before the night...

    Let's face it: I did not bother too much looking for nightlife in Kenya... I was most happy with admiring an amazing sunsets: this picture is taken from the bar on the 6th floor of the royal courts hotel sipping a passion fruit juice. I went for a walk in the old town later on at night but - even if beautiful - it could not compare with that sunset...

  • african dances

    Most seaside hotels, if not all, offer some shows of african dances in the evening. They are obviously made only for tourists - but they can be pleasant and they also provide local people with a sort of income...so I guess why not. Some costumes are quite colourful, and the drums sound is excellent. There are also a couple of discos in Malindi...

  • Sams cheesey disco

    This is a club we went to alot. Very cheesy music, even cheesier music, but a nice atmosphere. Even being white I didn't feel out of place, and the locals don't really look at you, unless one of the men takes a fancy....then you may have a job getting rid of them!!Be aware when ordering! I orders a vodka and coke one night and instead of a glass, I...

    In the hotels at the coast are often cultural evenings with local dancers and singers. In our hotel a group of Samburu youth showed their dances.

    Excellent food ranging from game meat to more the usual meats and fixings. Adjacent nightclub rages, especially on New Years Eve. None, but maybe casually nice

  • hide yourself, don't make a noise

    and strain your ears in your tent. Hear the sound outside.Cry of nocturnal animals in distance, rustle of something passes along near, chorus of insects...all the kinds of such noises surrounding you ease you from the excitement of the day. And go to sleep peacefully...

  • Cooler in the Highlands!

    While in Molo (near Nakuru) we stayed at the Highlands Hotel. This was winter and up in the hills so the evenings became chilly. The one night that we were there, my wife and I joined the local Kenyans at the hotel bar (we were the only tourists staying at the time) and had a great time by the roaring fire listening to the singing and talking. It...

  • Having a drink near Lake Baringo

    A pub near Lake Baringo. That's the place to be. ;-)This pub, totally different then we are used to of course, is nothing more than some kind of shed. Not really cosy and very quiet but in spite of that I had a wonderful time here.Dancing on reggae music played from a very old transistor radio and drinking beer out of bottles. It became a little...

  • The dance of the Kikuyu's

    Nightlife during safari's? Almost impossible. When you're staying on a campsite with a lodge it sometimes happens that there will be a performance.This performance, a traditional dance, was done by some Kikuyu's. Of course, the 'white' people had to join them. After this performance it was possible to dance on modern (well, it was actually from...

  • Nightlife can be considered...

    Nightlife can be considered non-existent, unless you have very good local friends. We went to a very popular club that is supposed to be the best in Mombasa - imagine a school disco in a big building plus a 'beauty contest' among undernourished schoolgirls as an extra. Very disappointing.

    yes, i know it sounds strange...but the carnivore is definately the best club in nairobi...ask anyone who's ever been to kenya! wednesday night are the best nights out and it plays a good mix of music from rock/indie to reggae, chart stuff...something for everyone. five bars, good mix of locals and tourists= great place to meet people and i love...

  • Listen the hippos songs...

    Once in yr lodge, see a Masai group dance and listen their songs is one of the best evening you can live...and in the night, if you are closed to a hippo camp, don't miss their songs too... Pants and shirts with long sleeves is a must...do not forget to insect repellent instead of yr Cacharel perfume :)

    Many people like to go to the Carnivore to eat game meat. I didn't go, so I don't know much about it personally.Usually, at the end of the day, we were pretty tired and we didn't do much in the evenings.

    Evenings are generally spent relaxing and talking about the days game drives. After two adrenaline pumping game drives (each day!) I found myself pleasantly exausted.At some of the lodges they will have a educational talk in the evenings. At the Mara Safari club, ours was done by a local Mara tribal elder, Ben. I found the most important part of...

    Not Much. These guys were at the Nakuru Lodge and were actually quite incredible, doing lots of acrobatic stuff and twisting their bodies into contortions.

    The hotels provide entertainment with floor shows of traditional dance and tribal style demonstrations etc.We ventured out to one of the local clubs which was heaving with male and female prostitutes. Great if you like that kind of thing but I thought it was all a bit sleazy. Usual nightclub gladrags.

  • In my opinion, the best night...

    In my opinion, the best night life in Kenya is overlooking a floodlit watering hole from any one of several game lodges! I enjoyed staying at The Ark in the Aberdares (the Aberdare mountain range forms a section of the eastern rim of the Great Rift Valley in west-central Kenya, northeast of Naivasha and Gilgil and just south of the Equator. The...

  • Zanzebar

    A fairly western style bar with a bit of everything - pool, satilite TV, dancing, meals, etc. Frequented by a middle-upper class clientel of which many take quite an anti mzungu stance unfortunatley detracting from an otherwise pleasant place to drink.
