As a traveller and an adventurer, I expect you to be of this character even when you`re on a date. We shall be looking at places to go on dates in Nairobi without breaking the bank.
So, you have met your date and planning to go somewhere to get to know your possible partner.
Well, congratulations, I have been there and the worst thing you can do is pretend to be someone or something you`re not.
Be yourself and place your interests on check at the same time try not to be selfish. My ideal date would be more outdoor than indoor.
Am a traveller, an adventurer, so I let my interest known before anything else. If we share the same it will always be a plus.
Now, without much ado, let’s delve in and see the adventurous places to go on dates in Nairobi without breaking the bank.
1.) Oloolua Nature Trail.
If I was to go on a date in Nairobi right now this would be my first choice. Oloolua Nature Trail with the lush greenery landscapes with the whistling eucalyptus trees will sweep you off your feet with its serenity and tranquillity.
The birds will tend to cheer and sing for you as you stroll in this photogenic and lovely nature trail.
Test their fears and let them relax, be themselves since no faking in nature unlike in those fancy restaurants whereby the first thing you ask for is the Wi-Fi password.
Yet you have come for a date. Am not dismissing restaurants though, they are good for relaxing and all but for a first date, I like it outdoor we can do those restaurants later. Check My experience at Oloolua and know the Charges.
2.) Nairobi Safari Walk.
I think this walking path was built for this purpose; it is one of the best places to go on a date in Nairobi. It is a magical walk that will erupt emotions and excitements at the same time.
With its raised wooden boardwalk, it allows a panoramic view of animals as you converse with and get to know your date.
Your phone will be replaced by the views of the rare Bongo, white Rhino, and albino zebras as well as big cats and antelopes.
3.) Solar Ice Rink at Panari Hotel.
It is the only one in East and Central Africa; it is adventurous and interactive making it one of the best places to go on a date in Nairobi. The hall-like measures 32 × 12 meters with an ice-skating surface area of 15,000 square feet.
It is open from 11:00 AM to 10:00 PM (This was before the interruption of Covid-19 Pandemic) So you choose your ideal time.
Each session is 60 Minutes per Kes1000 person but by the time you finish this skating, you will feel like you have known your date since time immemorial.
The thing I don`t like with restaurants, it makes it too official and almost can feel like an interview or interrogation which is a turnoff.
Adults Entrance fee Kes1,000
Kids below 14 years Kes800 (you may soon have kids).
4.) Nairobi Railway Museum.
This is the itinerary, meet the usual place the Archives, besides Mr Price After all this is the meeting point for Nairobians.
Start with Archives one of the most underrated places to go on dates in Nairobi. (Sadly 70% of Nairobians don`t even know the entrance of this museum). Have a tour within this hidden but conspicuous Archive museum.
You will probably notice how amazed they are to tour this historical museum. After the tour head towards the railway Museum.
If possible, hold their hand because of the busy streets of Nairobi, and if you’re the Man start showing your prowess in leadership and security as you crisscross the busy streets.
Ladies this is the time to know what kind of man you’re about to date. How does he protect you from the incoming traffic of pedestrians? Does he lead and pave way for you?
Once in the Nairobi railway museum, tour the place talking and asking all the right questions. Help her hop in those stalled trains.
It is such an interesting escapade for a date. The walk from CBD to the railways is almost a city tour on its own. What is the entrance fee at Nairobi Railway Museum check it here?
You can test her or him for a lunch in nearby street food (Kibandaski), monitor their reactions.
I would like my date to be flexible, if we do a 5 star today it shouldn`t be a big deal to do street food tomorrow and vice versa.
5.) GP Karting Nairobi.
Located along Langata road near the famous Carnivore. One thing I like about GP Karting it brings out the adventurous you to compete with your person.
It is interactive and you don’t have to break the bank to do this. It will leave a memorable mark that a restaurant wouldn`t match.
GP Karting Langata Road is one of the top places to go on dates in Nairobi. Evoking your partner’s adrenaline is simply unparalleled. Check GP Details and Prices.
6.) Fairview Coffee Estate.
What more would one need other than having a farm experience in Nairobi? Well, not going to the farm but touring a coffee farm that is graced by a hot cup of coffee and bites after the tour?
You can have your chat during and after the coffee tour and this hit different yet quite affordable. You can drive or take a taxi from Nairobi CBD depending on where you both agree.
7.) Bowling in Nairobi.
Do you love this game? Well, I personally do. It is even more interesting when you`re teaching someone how to play it.
The laughter when they miss, not in a bad way but just spicing sense of humour in your date. Check Bowling places in Nairobi. It is an interesting interaction where you get to understand and know your peon with ease.
8.) Heated Pool.
You can have a swimming date whereby you will have little to no disruption as you sip your drinks in the pool. This time not just a pool but a heated pool.
There are more than 23+ Hotels with heated pools in Nairobi where you can walk in and use their pool. You don`t have to reserve a room to be allowed to use the pool.
This is another top idea or place to go on a date in Nairobi.
9.) Amusement Park.
What is an Amusement park? This is a large outdoor area with fairground rides, shows, and other entertainment. Just like the name depicts, it is there to amuse you.
There are many amusement parks in Nairobi but, two rivers Mall stands out specifically because of that ferries wheel.
I found it romantic as you two gaze at the beauty of Nairobi Sky scrappers from the 60 Meters high ferries wheel.
Then after you can have your dinner after the activities. Read more about Ferries wheel at Two Rivers Mall.
10.) Giraffe Centre.
I know you are like how could I leave in one of the top places to go on dates in Nairobi. Giraffe centre can offer you, classes, for free on how to kiss.
They are known as the kissing giants, they set the mood and pace for you. This magical destination is easily accessible by both public and private means and you don’t have to hurt your pockets.
Lately, you have to book in advance due to the pandemic. Entrance charges is Kes1,000 Per Person.
11.) Karen Blixen Museum.
They are neighbours of Giraffe Centre and the definition of lush greenery landscape serene Oloolua Nature Trail.
It is almost to do all at the same time but now it is up to you to choose where you feel will be good for you with your date.
12.) Imax Theatre.
Grab your popcorns and head to different theatres in Nairobi. It is adventurous o grab a movie after your day date if it went on well.
Just relax and feel the connection, better the movie be interesting to keep you glued otherwise this can spoil everything if it is boring.
Imax theatres are common places to go for dates in Nairobi and they are quite affordable. Imax Garden City is ideal.
I know I have been disapproving restaurant dates but, you can always catch something to eat or drink after your escapades.
What I was disputing is just walking to the restaurant and all you do is just eat or drink and nothing more.
You should see your date walk, trip, react to things, body language since you`re on an outdoor expedition but not confined in a restaurant with WIFI.
Check the best restaurants in Nairobi for both Vegetarians and steak lovers ideal for a date.
