    The weekend is finally upon us. That doesn’t mean that the only thing you can do to entertain yourself is to go out clubbing.

    There’s nothing wrong with that but perhaps you’d like to switch things up this weekend round right? And if that’s the case, worry not, we have some awesome ideas for you to try out.

    Of course, as always, it depends on your taste in life and on the size of your pockets. So whether or not you’re looking to go out alone, as a couple or as a group, these ideas are going to be worth every penny paid.

    Enough of me hyping you up, let’s channel all that good energy, excitement, and elevated vibes and check out the list we compiled right? Aye!

    #1. Whistling Moran Racecourse

    If you have a lead foot and your heart is filled to the brim with a need for speed then this is the plan for you and yours.

    Located in Athi River, you can take the long drive to the racecourse then get buckled in and experience what it would be like to burn rubber as a professional racer.

    A 10 minute or 30 minutes heat will cost you from Ksh 1,500 to Ksh 4,000.

    #2. The Forest

    If your gang loves action then this is the place for you! The Kereita Forest boasts a variety of events including ziplining (Ksh 2,800 per person), mountain biking (Ksh 1,200 per person for 2 hours), archery (Ksh 1,200 per person), paintballing (Ksh 1,750 per person).

    If you’re in a group I strongly suggest trying out some paintballing. It’s like real-life Call of Duty -without the Ukraine Russia element of actual war.

    #3. KRRC Gun range

    This is for a plan for anyone with a thing for guns. If you want to learn how to safely handle them and then how to actually fire them and hit your target, this is the plan for you.

    And they have something for everyone from a simple .22 to something meatier like a .45ACP but remember to always listen to the instructor and be sure to have as much fun as you can.

    #4. Bowling

    In the recent past, this has emerged as one of the more popular group activities as it happens indoors and is just a whole bowl of fun.

    If you’re competitive you get to go against all your friends to find out who the king of the alley is. Oh, they also serve beer.

    The vibe at the Village Market bowling alley is decidedly American complete with number plates and street signs marking famous highways and roads.

    The Sarit Centre bowling alley has a lot more flash and razzmatazz to it with more lights and neon signs. You can also enjoy a cocktail and grab a bite to eat at the venue.

    #5. Ice skating

    This one is for the brave because make no mistake about it, you will fall. And we hope we were only referring to you doing so once… A while. But it is so much fun and you get to learn just like you would have if you were a child. So what I am saying is that this will be a treat for your inner child.

    #6. Star Safari

    Nairobi Star Party has been an exciting event that gathers families and friends around a telescope to stargaze. Views of the Moon, and planets as you enjoy a tour of the sky. We also offer trips out of the city to darker areas not too far from the city. The team of expert astronomers will give you an “edutaining” tour of the African sky.

    If you have your own tent, it will set you back Ksh 3,000 and if you need food, that’ll be Ksh 5,000. But if you don’t it will cost Ksh 4,000 and if you need food, that’ll be Ksh 6,000.

    Bet you didn’t know there was so much to see and do in Nairobi did you?
