Holy Family Basilica Parking Charges

In this article, we will cover the Holy Family Basilica Parking Charges. The Holy Family Basilica, also known as the Basilica of the Holy Family, is located at the end of Koinange Street and between Kaunda Street, Parliament Road and City Hall Way, City Square in Nairobi, Kenya. The Basilica is a significant landmark and an important place of worship in Nairobi.

The Holy Basilica Parking Silo was officially opened on December 2nd, 2019 by John Cardinal Njue as a creative way of providing motorists with additional, convenient and secure parking spaces within the city centre. 

Holy Family Basilica Parking: All You Need To Know

The Holy Family Basilica Parking is one of the best and most secure places to park your car. The facility’s location is also strategic for guests attending meetings and conferences within Nairobi CBD. It also offers exclusivity and is within quick reach of the exit routes – Uhuru Highway and Mombasa Road. The parking facility has a capacity of 516 slots, split into four levels underground. It features automated access control for entry and exit and grants access to authorised vehicles only. This enhances the safety of parked cars.

The facility has an intelligent parking guidance system (PGS), which combines traffic monitoring, communication, processing and information dissemination technologies to give drivers dynamic, real-time information about space availability. The system utilises outdoor and indoor occupancy signs as well as bay indicators to guide drivers to free spots. This eases parking. These special features bring unmatched convenience to the facility. Besides, parked vehicles are sheltered from small thefts, riots and adverse weather. 

The area is served by two lifts. This makes it accessible to persons who are physically challenged. All four levels are fitted with enough air conditioning machines, fire-fighting equipment and carbon detectors. There is CCTV surveillance, 24/7.

The lighting system has sensors that detect and adjust the level of lighting as deemed optimum. The Basilica is using solar power at the facility to cut energy costs. Additionally, the parking silo is served by a helical staircase that uses glass to allow natural light to penetrate to the fourth level.

The Holy Family Basilica decided that the provision of additional parking spaces would come in handy, not only for the congregants but also as an extra source of revenue to support the church’s evangelisation and social work such as the furtherance of education, medical services, charity and other community support initiatives.

How much is parking at Holy Family Basilica?

For short-term parking, parking is paid for using the temporary barcode ticket provided when you enter the parking lot or through the USSD Payment Code *270#. The car park is open until 11 pm.

Time Duration Charges
0-2 hours Ksh 100
2- 3 hours Ksh 200
4- 5 hours Ksh 300
5- 6 hours Ksh 400
Above 6 hours Ksh 500

For long-term parking, corporate companies and SMEs with several cars enjoy parking space for Ksh 15,000 per car per month. The rates go lower depending on the number of cars. This is competitive pricing, given that in Nairobi’s CBD, parking bays go for as much as Ksh 19,000 a month. Tenants at Cardinal Otunga Plaza benefit from an even friendlier rate of Ksh 12,000 per car per month. Therefore, visitors on a short stay at the Cardinal Otunga Plaza, which has conferencing facilities and meeting rooms on lease, are well catered for.
