Nairobi CBD Most Popular Landmark Buildings to Wait At

It is usually advisable that if you are visiting Nairobi for the first time, you are informed of where to wait and be picked up instead of trying to figure out your way out of town. Here are a list of places you should ask for or wait at when you are new in Nairobi CBD and have no idea where to begin from

1. Afya Center

Everyone in Nairobi probably know Afya Centre, the Green House along Tom Mboya towards Railways. When you walk around Afya Center you will come across individuals or groups of people with bags standing in front of or beside the building. Most of them are usually waiting to be picked or to pick up someone. If you are lost within the CBD, just ask for directions to Afya Center, then wait to be picked up from there or until you are certain of your next move.

2. Kenya National Archives

Popularity known as Archives. It is also one of the most popular buildings within Nairobi CBD. Archives is also a very common waiting point or pick up point for visitors and those being visited respectively.

3. Kencom

Kencom is also one of the most popular buildings with the CBD. Kencom is just across the road from Archives. A tall white structure owned by Kenya Commercial Bank (Kenya Commercial Bank Headquarters). There is usually very tight security around Kencom and therefore no need for anyone to worry about their safety.

4. Hilton

I'm not referring specially to Hilton Hotel, but its surrounding, especially the public benches facing Kenyan National Archives. Hilton has been serving Kenyans for decades and therefore one of the most popular landmarks within the CBD. It is a safe place to wait for a pick up

5. Fire Station

There is only one fire station within Nairobi CBC, that is the Tom Mboya fire station. This makes it a popular landmark for new faces and those willing to wait within the CBD.

You must have realised that most of these landmarks are either along Tom Mboya or Moi Avenue. The reason is that, these two streets are at the heart of Nairobi CBD. I mean the most strategically located streets of Nairobi. The landmark buildings that I have mentioned above are in most cases very safe, but beware of conmen and pick-pocketers while you wait.
