Exploited! This is really not a tour location. It is a slum area. I've lived close by for the last few years and I occasionally go there for various reasons. Kibera is often times the 'poster child' for the poor place in Africa because it's so accessible. If you appreciate it for what it is, it's actually a pretty great place. Lots of little places to eat, places to buy local art, etc. But it is unwise for tourists to go here. I know a number of people who have been robbed by large gangs in broad daylight and you wouldn't be able to make your way around without a guide anyways.
