Visitors who find some free time while in Nairobi - at the end of a tour,before start ing their Kenyan safari , Tanzania safari, or even on business - may want to do / visit one or several of these excursions:
Nairobi city tour
You are picked from your hotel in Nairobi and driven around the city of Nairobi. Your driver guide will point out key features of Nairobi to you, like the city market, parliament, leading hotels, corporate buildings, bus terminals etc. The tour of the city will conclude with a visit to KICC - Nairobi's landmark. Th helipad at the top of the building offers unrivaled views of Nairobi and from here, one truly grasps the dimensions of Nairobi. From here, high rise buildings, slums, high end estates as well as the business district can be seen. Depending on the day of the week, the flea market - Masai market - can be visited. Look out for a bargain on this original items of arresting beauty. Pieces here include paintings, carvings, jewelry, footwear - mostly sandals and clothing - all are fascinating and most are sold by the creators.
Shoppers at the Masai market should be ready to haggle though and be weary of middle men who offer you to take you round the market - they stifle both the shopper and the creator.
