KIBERA GUIDED TOUR
Kibera is an extremely poor suburb of Nairobi composed of over 1 million inhabitants spread across an area of only 2.5 square kilometers. It’s classified as the second largest shanty-town in the world (after Johannesburg’s slums in South Africa), but this is often disputed. Its origin dates back to 1900, when British colonists decided that Africans should live segregated from Europeans in the city outskirts. The Brits also decided to separate Africans by ethnicity, and Kibera was the settlement where Nubian soldiers were assigned to. However, it is also a home of great minds and innovations in forms of art, culture and technology, some of which are outstanding on a global stage.
ITINERARY: We will meet up at 0900hrs at the International House and board a public transport bus to Kibera. We shall have a 3-4 hours walking tour of the slum making stops at places of interest to engage with the locals and take photos (Restricted-picture policy: Pictures are allowed at dedicated places after permission by the guides). Our guides and security guards are well-known in Kibera, born and living in Kibera. After the tour, we shall walk to the bus terminus and board a public transport bus back to city center. Arrive in town center and ensure guests will get safely and early to their locations.
