If you’re looking for something different to do on the weekends, Nairobi has plenty of unique experiences to offer. 

From escape rooms to pottery classes, here are some exciting ideas for you to try out with your friends.

1. Escape Room in Karen

Are you up for a challenge? The escape room in Karen Village is the perfect activity for those who love games that require teamwork and creativity.

Clues, riddles, and codes are embedded within the rooms just waiting to be found and cracked before the 60-minute limit is up!

Work together and test your collective I.Q. Can you all escape before time runs out? 

2. Pottery Classes 

For those who enjoy getting creative, pottery classes are a great option.

There are many centers in Nairobi offering both individual and group lessons.

One such place is the Nairobi Art Center located in Kauria Close. Here, you can learn how to make mugs, pots, vases, and more. 

Not only is pottery therapeutic, but you also get to take home your creation at the end of the day. How cool is that?! 

3. Pasta-Making Class 

If you’re a foodie and love Italian cuisine, book a private pasta-making class with your friends.

A chef will teach you how to make pasta from scratch, and at the end of the session, you get to indulge in your homemade pasta with a chilled bottle of wine. 

It’s a great way to bond with friends over food.

4. Trivia Night 

For those who love a good challenge, Nairobi has several restaurants and cafes that host trivia nights. Most notable is the Lava Latte located on State House Road.

Gather a group of your closest friends, form a team, and test your knowledge of classical artists to beloved childhood movies. They even have prizes to be won at the end! 

There you have it, some alternative weekend activities to spice up your hangout sessions in Nairobi. Get creative and have fun!
