The Talisman Escape room, for me, is the best team bonding activity in Nairobi.

What do you look for in a team bonding activity? Usually not too much of a physical activity, that might be located close to a place you can buy food/drinks, and pushes you to work with those around you to achieve an objective that brings you closer together – Escape Room Kenya checks off all those boxes and more.

I need to highlight that its something out of the ordinary in Kenya as it’s the only one – there is no other escape room and if there is its definitely not at the same level. It has been built in a way that it could rival those in countries abroad which is a testament to the passion those running it have for the concept. So while the product is first class what about the staff and the experience? Well that is a 15 out of 10. The ladies are exceptional in their communication over the phone and also in their ability to make a potentially tedious registration process positive and their ability to really get everyone on the same excitement level going into the rooms.

But once I’ve done the escape room what next? Firstly, there are 3 rooms that increase in difficulty so there is a great progression of rooms. Secondly, its difficult to finish and even when you do there is a leaderboard with timings so you can satisfy the competitive side in you to try and get as high on the leaderboard as possible by finishing the escape room as fast as you can. But if that’s not something that appeals to you, I can guarantee you that after a month or two you can revisit the same escape room and forget elements which make the whole experience feel like the first time.

In short, the Escape Room was and is an amazing team building experience. I personally have been there more times than I’d like to admit and it is a genuinely first class experience that genuinely never disappoints. Oh, and when youre done, you can just pop over to the Talisman restaurant which is the best in Nairobi for a bite to eat or a drink.

But don’t take my word for it, book your own experience and come back here on Trip Advisor and confirm that all I’ve said above isn’t a bad marketing attempt but an accurate description of the experience one has at The Escape Room.

Had a fantastic time with colleagues. We did this as part of a team building activity and the whole team really enjoyed the experience. Brendan and the crew were also fantastic hosts and game masters! I would definitely plan to do this again 😊

I did The Inventor's Workshop room, and I was very impressed by the quality and the diversity of the enigmas and the developed setup of the room. Room is quite long so we did not manage to get out on time, but it even adds to the interest of the place :) Perhaps the scenario could have been slightly more developed, but all in all, it was an amazing experience.
Personal is highly knowledgable and very professional.
Highly recommend !

Another great afternoon at Escape Room Kenya! We got a sneak-peek at the new POACHERS LAIR room and were blown away! More innovative challenges and lots of lateral thinking required. We didn't quite crack it, which just makes us want to go back for more! Highly recommended! Ps. all covid restrictions measures are in place and effective without detracting from the fun.

Game - The Escape Room games are very interesting, we did have a fun time and highly recommend them for staff retreats, parties etc. However, before we played the games, we experienced some challenges that we think Escape Room needs to work on to better their services.

Poor Communication - Booking the room was overall difficult. And it shouldn't be. Response to emails was very slow, we had to call several times to find out if the email had been received and if someone was working on our quotation. The fact that staff work on part-time basis makes communication even more difficult because staff can only respond to their clients when they are in the office unless the client is not willing to wait. We, later on, received a wrong confirmation and when we requested for the right one, we were told that the people who could access the email were away until later in the day.

Lack of professionalism - Upon confirmation, we were not informed that we needed to be there 15 minutes before the start of the game even after calling the staff while we were on our way. The in-person reception from the staff was also not good - staff were rude to us. Even though we were only 10 minutes late, they told us that we only had 30 minutes for the game because there was another group coming in after us and they needed 30 minutes to set up the room. We were surprised to learn that there was actually no group waiting - they, therefore, effectively lied to us and put pressure on us for no reason. This left us wondering why the staff were so angry and rude to us when we arrived.

Overall, while this is a great activity, there is a serious need for improvement in customer relations and communication.

We played the submarine as a group of 5. The room is well set out to engage the whole team. Who knew one hour could be that short? The Submarine rescue team (Pam and Rob) were amazing!! We had so much fun and would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a different kind of adventure.

Thanks for this glowing feedback Judy....very much appreciated! The new room is certainly not a walk in the park, and your group managed to survive a whole hour of tough puzzles. Thanks again for helping us to test the room. Pam

My friends and I had the chance of doing two rooms during our visit: The Inventor's Workshop and the Poacher's Lair (their newest room)
We had a blast attacking the rooms and appreciated the challenge. There are so many little things that may be overlooked so do not underestimate any of the rooms.
Greatly impressed by the challenges and kudos to the team for setting them up!

The staff are welcoming, polite, and willing to help where they can. We are grateful to have the gamemaster assist us as we attempted to tackle both rooms.

COVID-19 safety precautions were implemented: they had a washing station outside and had sanitizers at the front desk and ensured each person had washed their hands
