“Not a safe place to be”

Immediately you get accosted by hawkers and people trying to leave you without your money, nothing interesting to see, anyways you can observe it from a taxi, when travelling in Nairobi.

There is nothing much to do here, you will find some soda/sweets/cake vendors, some amateur photo men and.....that's it.

“Good Place to Get Robbed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

The park was nice, but the vendor tried to keep our money when we bought a soda. Don't go here at night if you value your wallet, or your life.
