“Surprisngly Safe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

Eye opening must-see for any visitor. Very safe in the daytime. Go with a local person so you do not get lost. As a "white" person, I have visited many times and brought many visitors. No one is ever the same after visiting for the first time.

“Really Sad”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

It is really sad to see people living in these conditions. It is not safe in Kibera, it is filthy and dirty. If you ever think you have things bad, go visit Kibera
