    Are there any swimming pools that would be convenient for people living along Limuru Road?

    • JamboNairobi says:

      I’m not aware of any that are open to the public. If I get to hear about such pools, I’ll definitely add them here.

  3. mwangic says:

  4. yvonne says:

    Hey, this is such a relevant article. Do you know of swimming pools along Argwings Kodhek Rd, Mbagathi Way or Langata Road (till KWS).

  5. Hi. Your contact for Rowallan camp is a wrong number and the link is not working. Is the pool still operational, and how does one get there from Ngong road?

    • Daveena says:

      Hi Annemarie, if you google Rowallen camp Nairobi, the contacts for the Scouts Association (who run the camp) and the yellow pages listing come up, I am sure you will be able to get the information you need via either of those

  6. soloshikoki says:

    Hi thanks so much for the article. I live in Imara Daima Estate, is there any swimming pool that could be having trainers to train someone who doesn’t know how to swim? How much does it cost. Thanks

    • JamboNairobi says:

      Soloshikoki,
      Thanks for asking. The closest public swimming pool to Imara Daima is probably at Panari Hotel. I don’t know if they also offer swimming lessons. Other nearby pools are Bellevue School, CID Training School and Nyayo Stadium. I would suggest you give them a call or pay them a visit to find out about swimming lessons.

    Great article and very relevant….there is also a pool in upper hill at the Public Service club Ksh200 for non-members

    • JamboNairobi says:

      Thanks for your comments Alex.
      When I inquired about access to the Public Service Club Swimming pool, they said that its not open to non-members unless they are signed in by a member.

  8. magdalene matheka says:

    What are the requirements in order to access public service club for
    a student who has the talent?

    • JamboNairobi says:

      You may want to contact the Public Service Club directly Magdalene, since i doubt that they monitor information websites such as this one.

  9. loise njeri says:

  10. PAMELA says:

    i would to know of public swimming pools around umoja preferably with gms

    • JamboNairobi says:

      The closest public pool to Umoja that I’m aware of is at Shepherds, Buruburu. I’ve not checked out the new shopping mall at Greenspan near Donholm. Perhaps they might have one too. It’s worth checking out.

  11. KATE says:

    Chester House charges doubled ,i have been there severally times and been paying Kshs 500 per day,.This has limited the number of people accessing the pool.

    • John says:

      Thika rd; Blue springs, Sports view kasarani charges 150 and 200 respectively.

    • Boniface says:

      You can also check out Bible translation Center in Ruiru, Roasters hotel, La Mada and Utalii. Charges are around 200 for Roasters and BTL center. La Mada and Utalii must be much higher.

    • Boniface says:

      You can also check out KU and Jkuat (Olympic size pool). Windsor is also a nice bet. If in Westlands, Sarit Center offers a heated pool.

    • Juli says:

      Hillocks Country Club- on enterprise road off Mombasa road has a small but nice courtyard pool.The old Hotel is currently under renovation and looks abandoned, but just ask for the pool.Though the environment looks rugged with construction stuff around, the pool has been under new management, and is always open with water so clear and blue you can’t believe this little gem has been hidden here!

      Why I like it…………………….

      1. Its clean with clear blue water- I’m 4real (when it isin’t they normally fix it fast coz they are pool maintenance experts)
      2. Its Quiet and NEVER crowded (Especially on week-days)
      3.They open from 7.00am-7.00pm(and 6.00am if training)
      4.They have a well trained male and female life guard and also offer swimming classes with different price packages
      5. It’s affordable@ksh200 adults, and less for kids
      (inquire)
      6.It’s a convenient choice for a morning, lunch or evening swim for anyone working around industrial area /mombasa road near-GM or south B
      7. The restaurant and cafe is open despite renovations and serves good snacks and meals esp during lunch hour (inquire -coz the bigger restaurant is within the compound in a different block)

    • maureen says:

      who can i contact over there?

      • Juli says:

        First go see the place, then decide – its simple but clean and has lifeguard around- nothing fancy, plus construction(slow) is in ongoing works in the main hotel area. Also check out listed locations in south C.

  35. Nelly says:

    Kilimani Primary School past hurligham, is open to the public; open from 8:00am to 5pm daily. It has a 25 meter pool with a baby pool; not overly clean if hygiene is your thing But has few people and a trainer and they offer swimming classes @ extra cost. Charges are 200 for adults and 150 for kids

    Happy New Year to you all.
    Jan was gorgeous with clear blue skies every single day, so enjoy the weather in Feb while you can, you won’t regret when the cold /wet returns!
    Kenya College of Insurance swimming pool situated off Mombasa Rd. in South C.(near Red Cross) Sorry I don,t have their contacts – but its worth it if you are around South C , south B or Bellvue / Mombasa Rd.area. Features:-
    Open to public weekday and weekends.
    Cost – Ksh 200 – adults; inquire for kids
    Hrs -10a.m – 6 pm (confirm)
    Security – Excellent- guards always present at main gate
    Pool – small but has shallow and deep end.(Kiddie pool is partitioned next to shallow end) Water is Crystal Clear blue -ALWAYS
    Life guard -Always present very helpful (ask about swimming lessons)
    Facilities -Snack shop, separate bar area, (Ala Cart, meals served in college dinning area) Clean New Washrooms, New Cushioned Lounge Chairs.
    Ambiance / Environment – Very Clean, Quiet, Professional- most pool users are mature students .
    Another nice option in South C is Bellvue school pool- already listed at the top of this page – bigger with separate adults and kids pool.
    Nairobi has more public / hotel swimming pools than most international cities around the world which may have more private (home pools)- I’d rather share the fun!

    • Juli says:

      Water is therapy -Its no secret! Just immersing yourself or standing in a shallow pool- (you don’t have to be a swimmer) can do your mind ,body and soul a lot of good- for life! And its better when the weather is nice (now)
