The exhibition was well organised and the facilities were ideal. The rooftop tour is worth a try (and quite entertaining) as you get to learn much about the city and its many historic buildings.

We just stopped over to take a picture outside the building, just to tell friends back home that we were really in Nairobi

Excellent view of Nairobi Skyline from the roof top. If you're in Nairobi and have some time do go there and get a 360 degree view. It's just awesome. Fresh air, nice view. Can see Westlands, Nairobi National Park, JKIA and what not. The view is fantastic provided it's a clear day. Costs just about 400 Kenyan Shillings for Non-residents/foreigners... More

Always wanted to go up KICC and have an aerial view of Nairobi.. and finally i got to do it! Well, the views are superb from atop KICC but i was disappointed by the fact that they don't even have a snack place up there despite the many people who go up and spend time there. I believe since the... More

If you want a 360 Degree view of Nairobi then the Helipad at KICC is the place to be. Awesome view from the top. Took on a tour by Wilson who was really helpful. Only problem I had was security entering the place. And having to leave you identity at the reception.

If you are a tall-building-nerd like me, I am sure you will appreciate a visit here. The man running the elevator and giving a short talk at the helicopter pad at the top is also a fantastic character. But the centre as such is nothing special. And the views from the top is not very spectacular.

There is a great platform on the top floor, you can have a 360 Degree view covering the entire city. It's worth your while.

Twenty years ago, when I was starting out in journalism, I wrote a comprehensive story about the Kenyatta International Conference Center (KICC). The building was tallest in Nairobi at that time and it had just come of age, having turned twenty-one. My article was basically about the architecture, the history, the beauty, the politics and legal issues surrounding this (still)... More
