Get to know a new side of Nairobi—the colorful culinary scene—on an evening walking tour downtown. Tuck into delicious Kenyan delicacies and sample local brews as you hang out in favorite local nightspots, handpicked by your expert guide.
After sunset the city comes to life with crowds bustling in and out of vibrant eateries and bars. Kick off your tour with a welcome drink downtown—there's an array of local specialties to choose from, including Tusker beer and tangawizi, a twist on ginger beer. Quiz your guide on life in Nairobi as he in turn sets the scene for the evening’s fun.
Continue to dinner at a renowned restaurant for a great chance to try some authentic cuisine. With your guide on hand to lead your through the menu, try something new and novel like a savory dish prepared with mbuzi, or goat. If you're a less adventurous eater, don't worry—savory barbecued meats like succulent chicken and flavorful beef are also available and rich with Kenyan seasonings. To accompany your meal, enjoy quintessential Kenyan sides like ugali, a porridge-like dough made with cornmeal, and kachumbari, a refreshing chopped salad made with tomato, onion, and cilantro.
Finish the evening in style with a nightcap at another of your guide’s recommended locales. Relive the flavors of your meal as you chat with your guide, and be sure to ask for pointers on other places to explore during your time in the city.
