The relationship that Kenyans have with Kenya can be a little trying at times. She makes it hard to love her at the worst of times, yet it only takes a minute to fall back in the mosh pit – a perfectly veiled sunset, or a cheeky moment with cynical residents who understand both the joy and pain of insane traffic, dodgy cops or a fabulously good meal from a new restaurant.
Nairobi has ridiculous amounts of potential, however most of it feels hidden.
Enter the Nairobae IG Tours hosted by Turn Up Travel – an outfit geared at offering super experiential forays to destinations across country and the region.
The first Nairobae tour took place last year, resulting in new connections, insanely good photographs from mostly amateur Instagrammers, and beyond that, buzz: the idea that it’s possible to see the city you’ve known for decades in a new light.
The second edition of the Nairobae tours will be taking place on the 27th of this month and will be a fully immersive dawn to dusk experience:
Sunrise and early morning game drive at Nairobi National Park
Breakfast at Artcaffe at The Hub in Karen
Nairobi Gallery (Old PC Building – Point Zero Coffee) and National Archives
Kenya Railways Museum tour
Lunch at Nairobi Serena
Optional afternoon activities including GP Karting/ Ice Skating at Panari/ Archery at Purdy Arms
Sundowner 5-7pm: Four Points at JKIA at the rooftop bar overlooking the park.
The Nightlife Experience will include the sampling of bars along Mombasa Rd, Lang’ata Rd, the CBD and Westlands
The tour costs 5500 per person for the full 24 hour experience.
