Full description
Experience the best travel stories for yourself! Join a local expert and uncover hidden gems on this Lonely Planet Experience.

Take a nightlife tour of Nairobi city and discover Africa away from the wildlife of its legendary parks. Swap giraffes for a beer or two as you explore Nairobi’s bar and restaurant scene. Meet in the city center and a local guide will take you to the most authentic spots in town. As Nairobi is such a unique, and often daunting destination, it’s best to be seen with a local, especially at night.

Hop aboard your private transportation and drive to a local bar in the Central Business District (CBD). Enjoy your 1st drink on the house! Try one of the local beers, such as the beloved Tusker, which has been brewed in Africa since 1922. If you don’t like beer, choose from a selection of wines, soft drinks and local juices, such as tangawizi (the local ginger beer). Chat to your guide about all things Kenya, and ask those burning questions you have about life in Nairobi.

Then, it’s time for dinner at a local restaurant, selected for its range of typical African food. Sample local treats such as nyama choma (barbecued beef or chicken), or the ultimate Nairobi treat, mbuzi (goat). Pick from a selection of traditional Swahili dishes that blend African, Arab, and Indian influences to create an exotic mix of spices and flavors. Enjoy quintessentially Kenyan accompaniments, such as ugali (a dough-like side dish), and kachumbari (a delicious tomato, onion, and coriander relish).

Wash it all down with an after-dinner drink. After your relaxing nightcap, transfer back to the Kivi Milimani Hotel for your drop off.
