6 Things to Do in Nairobi on a Sunday

Looking for things to do in Nairobi on a Sunday?

I am.

I am a pretty disciplined person on all other days, but whenever Sunday rolls around, all I want to do is let loose and have a fun day.

This has nothing to do with what I’ve been up to the rest of the week.

It doesn’t have to have been a particularly busy or productive week.

It’s just a Sunday thing!

On Sundays, I want to dress up to match the weather (hopefully sunny but not too hot) and just spend a pleasure-filled day doing things such as:

Things to Do in Nairobi on Sunday

 1. Have Brunch at Nairobi Java House

Often, if there’s someone I want to catch up with, I’ll suggest having breakfast at Nairobi Java House at an un-breakfastly hour like 1:30 p.m. (because Java serves breakfast all day on the weekend).

2. Take a Day Trip Outside the City

At other times, I’ll want to head out of town and get as far away from urban life as possible.

3. Nyama Choma and Sunday Jazz (Nairobi, Sunday Night)

Still, at other times, there is always my default hang: going to eat meat with a friend at The Hood and somehow ending up at Tamasha for jazz. 🙂

Then, there are days like today, when I am simply looking for different, unusual things to do.

More Suggestions for Things to Do in Nairobi on a Sunday

A quick scan of potentially interesting things to do this Sunday leads me to the following ideas:

3. Breakfast at Karen Blixen Coffee Garden Restaurant—I haven’t done this in a while, but in the day, Karen Blixen Coffee Garden used to serve a beautiful outdoor Sunday brunch. (Update: The Karen Blixen Coffee Garden Restaurant is now the Tamambo Karen Blixen Coffee Garden and apparently still serves a mean brunch.) 

4. Have Lunch at The Talisman in Karen —I’ve never had lunch at The Talisman (I’ve had dinner there many times though), but it is an excellent restaurant, and being anywhere in Karen is always a pleasant and restful Sunday thing to do.

5. Spend the Day at Masai Lodge (off Magadi Road)—Although there’s not very much to do at Masai Lodge, it’s a relatively short drive from Nairobi and is always a calming, refreshing way to spend a Sunday, surrounded by stunning visuals of nature.
