Serene in one word for this place in the one of the largest cities in Africa. Away from the hustle bustle of the city, relax and unwind with your family

The Nairobi Arbotereum is a huge green park in the city. Located along the State House road this is a brilliant place to visit - a sanctuary of green & vegetation in the middle of an urban concrete, glass & steel jungle.

If you want to be quiet for a day or two then the best place to visit is the Nairobi Arboretum. A nice and cool place.

The Arboretum is a nice Place to visit, for a run, walk or just to relax. Its not 100 % safe so keep your Eyes open.

In the far sides of Nairobi, past all kinds of little corporation houses such as Crawford where they have restaurants that serve no food at all but contain friendly one-child parental waitresses nevertheless, moving up and down like costumer friendly rabbits without a business, we came to this very amateuristically held park/forest/national pride, in front of which there was a...

I went there in Dec 2015 mainly to look for a nice place to take photos for my kids for blowing up and framing on canvas. The result was spectacular... then I was charged 1,000.00 for my troubles. Its a standard fee. The only downer is that the place is slowly getting a little too littered and corp orates are... More

Serene environment to take long walks, long afternoon naps, picnics, outdoor games, etc. Be sure to carry your own bikes though :-)

There was a lot of litter all over the grass, and it just didn't seem clean, the air didn't seem fresh and there were loads of people everywhere. I wouldn't recommend this place if you are wanting a peaceful walk.
