2. The Godown Art Center – Nairobi has a vibrant art scene. The Godown Art Center located in Nairobi’s Industrial Area is home to a number of these talents. It is just a ten minutes’ drive from the city center. Some of the art is made into hand bags for the ladies.

3. Kiambethu tea farm – This is one of the earliest tea plantations in the country. It is based in Tigoni a 45 minutes’ drive from the central business district.
