The Google Africa Blog is always a good read. Today, Mark de Blois is announcing the new Local Search for Maps of Nairobi. So the next time you search for hotels, restaurants or even for Kenyan currency/forex, just go to Google Maps. This launch makes Kenya the first Sub-Saharan African country to have local search integrated into Google Maps.
Impressive, 163 restaurants in Nairobi, many of which were unknown to me, including Akasaka and Originelle. I need to start exploring them now. Anyone for dinner? Anyone for lunch? Even breakfast? Please...
Others are all time favorites, like Havana, Peppers, Simmer's and Tamarind (all highly recommended by Rafiki), and the unavoidable fast food joints like Steers and Kengele's.
And note, if your business/service is not present in the database, just add it to Google Map Maker.
