Look out for the guide Peter who tells you he has the best office in Nairobi which turns out to be the helicopter landing pad on the top of the building. Views are stunning.

In the best place of city center, very clean and neat. The security are so polite. Good quality of service and arrangement provided. The second tallest building of the country located there, arrange to have a tour on top.

Interesting building architecturally, and worth the smallish fee to go to the top for unexcelled views.

the displays indoors are nothing compared to taking the elevator and a narrow spiral staircase up to the observation deck and helipad. there's a small admission fee for going up, reduced for students, but well worth it

We went all the way up to the last floor and experienced a wonderful view. Everything was nicely cleaned and the staff was nice. A bit scary for those who suffer a degree of natural fear when exposed to heights, but you doooooooo have to look down or you will miss the view. Could stay sitting there for hours. it... More

When you are on top of the so called KICC, it is like you are viewing Stockholm from the Parliament building. You almost wrap the all view of Nairobi CBD at a glance.

Take fast elevator to top floor, then walk past old revolving restaurant to get to helipad at the top. Great views in all directions, helping to get big picture on exploding growth in Nairobi. Peter Kamau is a great guide; worked there since 1997.

KICC provides a nice vantage point for observing the crazy expanse of Nairobi. The views are pretty good (on a clear day you should definitely be able to see Mt. Kenya, but we weren't so lucky). Still, views over the airports, the national park, and the different city neighborhoods are pretty great. There's not much shade at the top (or... More
