I bet you’re loving the hot weather as much as I am. Finally, we have some sun and we can get nice and tan. I can also imagine the number of people who suddenly want to “hang out”. Our friend group chats on WhatsApp are filled with conversations that often end with catching up over drinks. Before we know it, someone uploads pictures that give us serious FOMO.
Good vibes are in the air. It’s bright and beautiful. This is the perfect time to plan those outdoor activities to get that much-needed Vitamin D. In case you’re wondering how to spend quality time with all your friends, try some of these exciting group activities available in Nairobi.
- Enjoy Happy Hour At Your Favourite Spot
Kenya is a drinking nation. That is why most bars now have a happy hour which starts around 5 pm when people are getting off work and want to catch up with some friends. This is a perfect and easy way to unwind, avoid the irksome Nairobi traffic and talk about the latest happenings in your life. During happy hour, drinks are served at subsidized prices so you can enjoy your cocktails or beers without worry. 5 Things To Consider When Partying Responsibly

- Play Escape Room At Talisman Restaurant
I tried this out once last year with some friends and I’ve been dying to go back. Though I haven’t done much of it, I would say this is one of my favourite group activities. It involves a puzzle room filled with clues and secret codes that participants are supposed to decode so as to make their way out of the room. It takes about an hour which flies by as you work together to solve the mystery. Not only is this fun but you also put to use your problem-solving skills. for a first-timer, it took a lot of convincing to try it out, but it was all worth it.
