This place has been closed for more than a year. The place is close. They are preparing this place to be open soon. Do not know the date of the re opening.

I have been to this mall a few times when I have visited Kenya and this is before the tragedy that happened there. My favourite part of it was the Massai market on the roof top that offered you wide range of Kenyan Artisans selling all sorts. I bought a few paintings carvings and hope when they re build the...

i stayed few streets from that mall . so its big and has everything one would expect from a shopping mall , Nakumatt Hyper Market is nice place to get groceries. make sure you get a cap in/out no matter how close you live. right across from the parking lot one can buy cats , puppies and few handicrafts.

I had couple of things to buy, and this shopping mall had it all. Before my trip to Kenya I had to buy some antimallaric pills, but I only bought one box since they are much cheaper down in Kenya. So, first of all there is a pharmacy with 'all' the things you need to 'protect' yourself from the mosquitos... More

Don't expect a shopping mall with lots of shops in Kenya. There are usually just a handful of fashion stores and none of them even coming close to what we are used to from Europe, the States or even South Africa. But this one is nicely built with some nice restaurants. Take a stroll, don't expect to find too much... More

I sat there with intention to do my work, and could hear him blatantly voicing his dislike of my kind of folk there (I’m a bearded Sikh). I immediately packed up and left, on the way out... More
