Hi, we live here in Nairobi, and have lived here for over a year. We have 2 small children, 2 and 5 and we love it here. there are so many things to do, i'm not sure if 2-3 days is enough. There are wonderful hotels, your children will be adored. There are several restaurants with not only play grounds but also staff whose sole function is to entertain your kids while you eat. Feeding the giraffes, taking the safari walk at the national park then lunch at tJolly rogers where kids can play, go down then inflatable water slide, generally have a great time, and there are kid minders there too. the water slide at Village Market, a movie, bowling, horseback riding, there are a million things to do with kids here. I would say, stay at the Southern Sun Mayfair, Have dinner at Peppers, which is right across the street, that way you are not too far from everything, but yet close enough to a Mall (or 2) that you can pop out to pick stuff up as needed. A nairobi holiday is fantastic. If you head over to Mombasa, I would recommend the Baobab beach resort for kids, or Turtal Bay in Malindi...Kenya is a great place for kids, with out a doubt.
