making the trip to the rooftop of the KICC is always fun. I have taken many first-time visitors to Nairobi up there. It's 100 Ksh for citizens and 600 Ksh for non-citizens. Great views. I recommend it!

Don’t let the security put you off. It gives the impression you can’t enter but that’s not the case. Enter from City Hall Way not Harambee Av. Excellent views of the city. Permits photographs of places difficult to catch from the ground, such as the...More

It’s worth the climb to the top to be able to look over Nairobi and see through to the hills. The view is spectacular from the top of the building

Tall building with view over city . It was part of a tour of the city so from that perspective it was grand but I would not go there specifically
