Kenyatta International Conference Centre lies in the heart of Nairobi. One can go to the top of the circular 30 floored building, and from the top, one gets a 360 degree panoramic view of the city. There is also a helipad at the top. A great place for taking pictures!

We went for a singing function organized by by one of the renowned production house of Nairobi. The area is quite big and the arrangement was good. Now coming to the auditorium, its not huge and square in type. But this will help you to seat near to the stage too.

I've lived in Nairobi for 5 years and I never knew you could go to the top of this iconic building. I'm so glad we did. It was great seeing Nairobi from above. I'm also glad that they have taken down the electric advertising sign that hung there for years in an effort to preserve the classic appearance of this... More

This is well worth going up to see the city views - gives you a great idea of the city layout, very secure, you need to carry your passport & identification with you to enter this building.

The tower was once the highest building, enjoy a bird's eyes' view of Nairobi city. If the weather is good, it is a must for any one who visiting Kenya. the ticket is only 400 kshs, take the elevate to 27th floor with any two floors, you will be at the roof of the tower.

It was an absolutely delightful experience to visit the KICC. The security officials were friendly and we went in without any hitches after the security check. It cost 300KES (3USD) for two to go up to the helipad from where we could see the entire city. The elevator took us to the 27th floor where there was another security official... More

Come with photo ID to get through the tight security at the entrance. Walk past the lovely fountains and memorial to the former President and enter the main centre. Buy a ticket at reception for 300 Shs and take the elevator to the viewing platform. A marvelous uninterrupted 360 panoramic view awaits of the Nairobi. A photographers paradise. Lovely and... More

This is nice but by no means necessary to do in Nairobi. The KICC itself is a bit shabby and run down but from the top you get a nice 360 degree view.
