The view from the top of the KICC is excellent and really gives you a useful overview of the city and its layout. On a relatively clear day, we could see the Ngong Hills and the Aberdares, as well as the national park stretching round the edge of the city and the airport. Staff at the KICC - both security...

There is not that much to do in Nairobi so this can be a way to spend an hour in the city. First you have to pass through security, then you pay at the reception and get to take an elevator almost to the top. The last 3 floors or so you have to take the stairs. The view from... More

You must bring your passport with you to get up to the viewing deck. It's actually a helipad, which makes it seem cool. The views are amazing. Bring sunscreen and a hat though as there's absolutely no shade at the top.

The KICC is well known for its conference facilities; however little is known of the helipad. You pay 150 shillings if you're resident and 450 if you're non-resident. The walls tell of the story of KICC and Kenya and if you have time, a great source of knowledge. What I love about the helipad is the beautiful scenic view of... More

There is an elevator ride almost to the top, then two flights of stairs to stand on the roof. A tour guide is available to explain the sights. You see the various government buildings, prominent commercial buildings, and some other attractions. The final stair climb is through the top bonnet, which is a mildly interesting to see the overhanging pieces.... More

It is a must see place in Nairobi. It holds so many Historical conferences. About 29 stories, top is a restaurant. View of Nairobi from top is really amazing.

The building reflects traditional African architecture, as does the use of simple solid shapes- cuboids make up the Plenary hall, the tower consists of a cylinder composed of several cuboids and the amphitheatre and helipad both resemble cones. you can be at the top for spectacular views of the city.
