Sitting relaxing in Uhuru Park, I saw people on the top of this building. Later, I found out that it was Kenyatta International Conference Center. Being a person who enjoys views, I wanted to take a closer look. The security to enter the area was on a good level. Getting into the building and up to the top was well... More

Don't miss seeing the fantastic view from the top of the conference centre! It costs just KSH200 to go to the top, and you can spend as long as you like taking in the view. A lift takes you as far as it can, and then it is a case of climbing two flights of stairs to reach the roof.... More

Not many people, Nairobians included, know that you can access the heli-pad at the rooftop of KICC. No tripods allowed, but you can take your camera up and get some awesome stunning shots of Nairobi's ever changing skyline. They are open from 6am to 6pm and the fee is Kshs. 200 only.

I can't think of anything else you'd do here - go up to the helipad, look all around Nairobi, wait for the sunset, go home, repeat.

OK, it's a building. nothing special in it or about it. What IS special is the view from the helipad. In every direction you have clear unobstructed views of the entirety of Nairobi in all of it's green, lush, hectic, urban, splendor. If you are visiting Nairobi, you shouldn't miss it.

Since reading her book and seeing the "Out Of Africa ' movie, my wife has always wanted to visit this museum. It was worth the visit.

Built in the 60s by Israeli investors, you can tell that the city needs an updated conference center. There is little room for informal meetings, concierge to drop off your bags and has THE cleanest bathrooms I have ever seen (kudos to the water feature). Not everybody seems to know, but you can ride the lift to the top of... More

We headed to the top for a panoramic view of the city centre. Head through the main gate with the security checkpoint. Then past the fountain and up to the main entrance. I had to hand in my passport to get a security pass, another security check, then to reception to ask to visit the helipad. We had a guide... More

No other building in Nairobi gives you such an incredible 360 degree view of the city of Nairobi. Carry your Camera and enjoy the sunset.
