Birthday Fun in Nairobi

Hi all,

I am sincerely hoping you can help me plan a fun and romantic birthday for my boyfriend. He is a musician (plays guitar and drums) and is also very active (enjoys hiking and biking).

I have started to compile a list of ideas, though I have no idea where to find these places:

1. A visit to a music store to buy him an instrument. Perhaps he can have a traditional Kenyan music lesson somewhere?

2. Take him to see live music. Perhaps a jazz bar? I read that there were some in Nairobi?

3. A picnic and a hike somewhere close by.

Any other suggestions??

Also, I wouldn't mind ending the night with a romantic dinner somewhere.

We are staying at the Heron Hotel, if that helps.

Thank you SO much!! :) :)

Brew Bistro is great http://www.thebigfivebreweries.com/. They have live music, DJ's, and great food.

Hi, Hiking in the Ngong Hills should not be contemplated without taking a KWS Ranger with you (which can be fairly costly), particularly if there will just be the two of you. There are buffaloes and sometimes bandits. Read the reviews on this site.
