Florest in Nairobi

Hi folks,

My girlfriend is working in a school in Nairobi and will be away for Valentines. I want to get some flowers delivered on the day and have found http://www.sendflowers.co.ke/l/

Very quickly, it lists the address as:

12921 GPO, 3rd Floor Chaka Place

Argwings Kodhek Rd

00100 Nairobi, Kenya

Does anyone know if this company is genuine (it looks legit), I am more concerned about her not receiving the flowers on the day than me losing a few quid. Or has anyone got any recommendations where I can order online.

Thank you so much!

Dave

There is a website called Mama Mike`s. which has a good choice of things for sale. www.mamamikes.com that will deliver all types of things.. e.g. cakes food flowers etc. Have a look at it - a lot of info on them - established in 2001. Hope this helps

Wow, how romantic! :) It will certainly make her day!

I also wlso wanted to suggest alwayspresent - already done above!

Also have a look at Interflora - there are agents in Nairobi

interflora.co.uk/category/…

When I lived in Nairobi for years we used Westlands Florist in Sarit Centre for all sorts of flower decorations, deliveries, etc

www.saritcentre.com/index.php…

They definitely do deliveries in town although I could not find a fancy online option for them, their contacts are indicated though. Of they do it, you can pay by MPESA from the UK I would have thought (for MPESA have a look on Safaricom.com - Kenya mobile service provider).

Sadly, there's no M-Pesa international - yet!

Hi Richard, not sure if you are entirely correct here :) Safaricom partnered with Western Union and for now money can be sent from WU directly to MPESA account safaricom.co.ke/personal/…what-is-imt FAQ number 4 - who are the partners

Specifically from the UK westernunion.co.uk/sites/gb/campaigns/corrid…

Convenience: you pay online throug WE, person receives directly to MPESA

Unless something changed and the Safaricom website is not updated, but I doubt it.

Hope it works!

Companies like Tuma Pesa have also started up to allow international transfer direct to M-pesa accounts

Thanks again everyone. Can't wait to get out to Nairobi for a month in May/June and see some of Kenya. I've been told its beautiful and as an animal lover I'll be in my element :)

Check out Flora 2000. They are a super company, always on time with delivery and the quality is fantastic. And payment is so painless and easy regardless of where the flowers go.

The website is so easy to navigate and I think the prices are more than fair.
