9 amazing places to propose in Nairobi

After the Chicken Inn proposal went wrong decided to compile amazing places you could propose in Nairobi

A video of a wedding proposal inside one of the most popular fast foods restaurants in Nairobi, Chicken Inn, has since gone viral on social media.

The proposal went horribly wrong as the supposed girlfriend went off running from the eatery without accepting the proposal.

The lad became the subject of online criticism for choosing Chicken Inn as his venue, for such a special occasion in his girl’s life.

Many who commented on the video, bashed the guy for choosing a 'cheap yet not so fancy venue' for the proposal.


To avoid such embarrassment compiled some amazing yet affordable places you could hold your proposal.

1. KICC helipad

The Kenya International Convention Centre's (KICC) helipad gives you an amazing view of the city of Narobi.

You are assured of snapping awesome yet memorable photos from that particular vantage point to archive your proposal.

To access the helipad, you will only part with Sh300 (that is Sh150 per person).


The only thing you need to make sure is that your girlfriend is not afraid of heights.

2. Arboretum

If you love the outdoors, you can organize a simple picnic at arboretum.

You will only part with 100 bob and you can even invite your friends to be part of your special moment.

3. Karura Forest


Are you adventurous and love taking walks in the forest?  Take your girlfriend to Karura forest on Kiambu road and propose in the cool breeze.

This will only set you back Sh200.

4. Safari Walk

If being in the wild is what tickles your fancy, going on the Safari walk at Nairobi National Park along Langata road is a good pick to propose to your future wife ( in case she says yes of course)

5. Two Rivers Dancing Fountain


The newly opened Two Rivers mall can be a great spot for you to ask for her hand in marriage.

You will probably want to do so at the dancing fountain, which has an absolutely fine ambiance and is especially very beautiful at night.

This is absolutely free.

6. The Hub

Another mall that can be amazing for your proposal is The Hub in Karen. Refer to this proposal that was the talk of the town.


7. View Point

Organize a drive for you and bae to the outskirts of Nairobi. Head to the popular great Rift Valley viewpoint and propose to her.

The viewpoint has a breathtaking view I don’t think she can say no to you.

8.  Imax

You can do a proposal after taking her to the movie.


You could organize with those in charge to pose your question on the screen after the movie date is over.

This will for sure surprise her!

9. Restaurant

Find a nice restaurant in the city which is first attractive and also pocket-friendly.

Please avoid fast food joints.
