A date in Nairobi...

Have you ever thought of what could be a perfect date in, one that did not need you to spend lots of money but left your date in awe?! I have always tried to figure out what a perfect date in Nairobi would be so I started jotting down my thoughts and....

 8.00 am - Go for a morning game drive in Nairobi National Park. This should cost you about KES 300 per person  and your vehicle, thus a total of KES 900.
 Nairobi National Park

11.00 am - Drive to the Giraffe Center or Daphne Sheldrick (Elephant Sanctuary) and get to feed the animals.

1.00 pm - Have lunch somewhere in Karen area that is not too expensive, my suggestion would be one of the restaurants within Nakumatt crossroads which in essence you would spend about KES 700 - 1000 per person.
National Museum

2.00 pm - Drive down to Westlands area and visit the National Museum to learn more about our culture and history.

4.00 pm -Drive to Sarit Center and  enjoy a cup of tea or coffee with some pastries as you chat about yourselves.

5.00 pm - Drive to the Central Business District and go to the Kenya National Theater or Alliance Francaise and enjoy watching one of the local plays that are always very entertaining.

8.15 pm - Enjoy an all "lay-low" dinner at either Steers (there is nothing yummy as their burgers) or some Pizza at Galitos, all the time as you enjoy each other's company!

9.30 pm - What other perfect way to end the night other than... Go dancing! There are lots of places to go dancing and since you are in the CBD I would go with Florida Night Club... It is a classic and truth be told all regional and international celebrities love it too..and the dance floor will give you a chance to check out each others dance moves..LOL!
So, that's my date..what would you do on a date day in Nairobi or anywhere else in the world? I would love to hear your suggestions....!!


  1. Awesome post, I've done 2PM- 9.30PM....hehehehe

    But first,

    get myself a CAR!

    1. Yes gal thats a plan, maybe next post i will consider a mat plan..hehe :)

  3. Awesome! I love your post. Hahaha

  4. Graet tips! We are traveling to kenya next week and we´ll def. try the 8am, and 11am. Do you know any good places in nai, anyone could hire an apartment?

    1. Hey Moca, thanks for your comment, you can contact and they will give you options for an apartment. :)

  5. Lovely post :) You forgot to factor in the traffic though. I donno how successful one would be having lunch in Karen at 1pm and being in Westlands at 2pm. It's crazy!

    1. Haha..traffic is a barrier but you do not have to do something exactly as the itinerary said....i have done the date many times before and it worked out just fine. :)
