This building host many national and international conferences. It is also the best place to view the entire city by paying for a rooftop lift ( about USD 10-15). At the rooftop you'll see most of the city and have a feel of Nairobi

Felt like stepping into the 1970s. Nothing special at all. Only go if there is an interesting conference going on inside at the time.

This is a quick and simple way to see over the city and nearby hills, we liked it. Good location to then wander the streets in the city center of Nairobi.

Tourists visiting Kenya can take the elevator to the top of the Kenyatta International Conference Centre (KICC) to get a bird's eye view of Nairobi. This is the tallest building in Nairobi (as of this review - Nov 2012) and provides a good view in all four directions.

Take the lift and then climb to the Helicopter pad and you have a great view covering half of Kenya. Better still take one of the complimentary guides and you can be walked through the view from Kilimanjaro to down town Nairobi.
