“The View of Nairobi from the top”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

When you are on top of the so called KICC, it is like you are viewing Stockholm from the Parliament building. You almost wrap the all view of Nairobi CBD at a glance.

“view from the top”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

Take fast elevator to top floor, then walk past old revolving restaurant to get to helipad at the top. Great views in all directions, helping to get big picture on exploding growth in Nairobi. Peter Kamau is a great guide; worked there since 1997.

“Nice views in the center of the city”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

KICC provides a nice vantage point for observing the crazy expanse of Nairobi. The views are pretty good (on a clear day you should definitely be able to see Mt. Kenya, but we weren't so lucky). Still, views over the airports, the national park, and the different city neighborhoods are pretty great. There's not much shade at the top (or anything, really - it's just a helipad); we brought a snack (I'm not sure if you're supposed to eat up there but nobody stopped us) and turned it into a great picnic location above the insane mass of humanity that is Nairobi. Use a student ID to get a discount.

“Incredible Views”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

If you do one thing in Nairobi, it should be to climb Kenyatta Convention Centre. There is not an awful lot to do in Nairobi but i have to say, the views from the top of Kenyatta are amazing, the Ngong Hills, the city itself, Uhuru park etc etc. Really well worth a visit. The interior is shabby, just bypass it completely and head for the lift to the helipad at the top. Wow.
