After a brief introductory meeting with your local guide, head off to explore Nairobi! Walking through the streets of Nairobi and travelling by public transport provides plenty of opportunity to mingle with the locals as they go about their daily lives, making this a pretty solid local experience in our books.
Your Nairobi walking tour will kick off with a stroll through Uhuru Park, right in the heart of the city, before wandering past the parliament buildings and the mausoleum of the first president of Kenya, Mzee Jomo Kenyatta.
This Nairobi tour continues with a look at the Kenyatta Conference Centre and the August 7th Memorial Park, which was built to commemorate the bombing of the US Embassy. We'll also give you the opportunity to visit the Kenya National Archives and various other sites within the city Centre, based on your interests and our route.
Another key local experience is food, so it's no surprise that this Nairobi city tour includes the opportunity to sample local cuisine at lunch at a local restaurant. Eat like a local, chat with locals, see Nairobi like a local...soon you'll pretty much BE a local! (well, not quite, but you know what we're getting at...)
After devouring your lunch, your Nairobi walking tour will walk itself right back on over to the meeting point, where you'll end your tour full of local knowledge and delicious food. Not too shabby, non?
