“A bird's eye view of Nairobi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

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.

“A bit dark and musty”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Don't know how old this building is; it is impressive in size but is now suffering severely from poor internal lighting and poor maintenance of facilities.

“Quickest way to see the whole City”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

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.

“A popular sight when you see pictures or movies featuring Nairobi!”

I went with a group and we had a great time walking around the courtyard, viewing the Jomo Kenyatta statue and seeing wonderful views of the city!

“Great view of the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

The visitors centre is in the conference centre and for a small fee, you can go up the lift and then a few flights of stairs to the observation deck where you have a panoramic view of Nairobi. Only then, can you appreciate just want a sprawling city this is - and just how many people and vehicles are on every road and street. It is well worth a visit to get Nairobi into perspective
