Nairobi is not exactly the place that makes you want to go out for an adventure.
Probably its because of our clubbing nature or the fact that all our activities must involve alcohol. Our food and drinking culture is rich in its own nature but there are activities for love birds that you may be interested in.
1. Learn how to climb At Climb Blue Sky
Climb BlueSky is an indoor rock climbing gym in Diamond Plaza Parklands on 6th floor of their old tower. They have another branch at Purdy Arms in Karen that is open on Saturdays and Sundays. This would be a good sport for people who want to practice climbing or enjoy a good workout too. For more information check out their Facebook page here.
2. Skating At Panari
Honestly for a country where we don’t get snow, this is a very fun and exciting date to be on. Yes, you may fall a few times but I bet it will be worth it especially when you learn to balance. The rink can accommodate 200 skaters at any time and is open seven days a week from 11.00 am until 10.00pm. It cost KSh 600 for kids and Ksh 800 for all ages above 15 years old for 60 minutes inclusive of skating boots.
3. GP Karting
If you’re looking for a quick adrenaline fix then this is the ideal activity for you. GP Karting in Carnivore road off Langata Road has become one of the best places to spend a weekend in.They have a night racing series on the weekends for KSh3000 with prices to be won.
There are three places in Nairobi that you can shoot people down with paintball. Jungle Paintball Kenya located in Parklands on Limuru road. Paintball fury located at Purdy arms or Langata near Carnivore. Shooters Haven along Thika Road or at Rolf’s Place. The prices are affordable with some places offering discounts depending on the number of people you are.They all have offers on Sunday’s where you get to use 150 paintballs for KSh 1000.
5. Nairobi Safari Park
This is a wooden boardwalk in the Nairobi National Park where you get to walk through and see animals for $22 dollars for Non-residents and KSh 215 for Kenyan residents. After that you can grab a bite at their restaurant which is not far from the park.
6. Oloolua Nature Trail
For nature lovers this is a nature trail in Karen that has a cave, picnic site, camp sites and a waterfall. It is a serene environment that allows you to have quality time with your family and friends or even by yourself.
