I just went to the Nairobi Arboretum and quite enjoyed birdwatching and relaxing. I saw 5 new species of birds. I also saw monkeys. This is a fine place to get away from the all the noise,dust and traffic of Nairobi. It isn't very crowded.

Arboretum offers a nice walk, but is a bit small. Before you know you have walked through the park. It is really cheap, but costs alot more if you want to bring your camera which is not fun. You can only pay entrance via M-Pesa,...More
