I've been to Nairobi a number of times, and done short safaris and seen the glitzy side of the city. Kibera though is completely different experience and my guide Philip really helped me understand the history and culture of this unique settlement. It was one of the best trips I had in Kenya. If there is a heart on Nairobi,... More

We visited Nairobi in January 2015 and had booked visiting Kibera with Kibera Tours. Our guides were very friendly and it was interesting to visit this place. But in our opinion there may be little bit more information about the life and activities of people in Kibera. If you will visit such place first time in your life, it is... More

Freddy was very responsive and was able to fit the tour around our schedule, as well as tailoring it to our interests. So we definitely recommend being upfront about what you want to see in the tour. I work in the development sector and have seen many informal settlements around the world, but even then, every community is unique and... More

I was nervous for my safety but wanted to see this slum for myself. Best decision I ever made! Totally safe and welcoming environment. New father Freddie was our guide. He was joined by 2 other young men all from Kibera. We walked everywhere and saw their markets, houses, infrastructure, small businesses and informal schools. The people are warm and... More

This was a very interesting tour that gives an inside view of one of the biggest slums in the world. It is a 3 hour guided walk in central parts of Kibera. The tour is very educating, professionally managed and safe - a very recommended day activity if you are in Nairobi.

It was a very informing and well organized tour. You get a insight into how the life in Kibera is. You meet some very strong people who has startet different projects with Hiv/aids, schools for children etc. I can really recommend this tour. 😊

We had wonderful tour at Kibera with Kennedy and Freddy. I loved hearing directly from residents about their experiences -- regarding daily life, Kibera's history, sanitation, housing, HIV/AIDS, the government, and more. The tour guides were incredibly well-informed and down to earth. Definitely the highlight of our trip to Nairobi.

It came to my attention that not all residents of Nairobi live in villas behind barbed wire so I decided to check out how the other half lives. Enter Kibera tours. NB: my colleagues thought I was stark mad to go there but I thought otherwise. Part of Kibera slum is a giant open door market which sells everything from... More

This was an amazing tour. I was the only person on this tour but Philip made me feel very safe & was happy to answer any questions that I had. Great to see behind the scenes of Nairobi.
