Come explore Nairobi behind the scenes in Kibera, East Africa's infamous slums - the home of over a million Kenyans, and a microcosm of Africa. Recently visited by then future-President Obama, PM Gordon Brown, and UN Secretary Ban Ki Moon, Kibera is the subject of countless United Nations programs targeting poverty, health, infrastructure, women’s rights, and education. During the Kenyan post-election violence of 2008, the community became an epicenter of activism, once again exacerbating political and tribal rifts in an otherwise peaceful area. The novel and 2005 film, The Constant Gardener, also popularized Kibera’s health and political issues.

Despite its problems, Kibera has a unique charm among the 42 tribes and various religions that peacefully co-exist in the 2.5 square kilometer area. “How are you?” are the endless greetings you’ll hear from hundreds of children eager to meet outsiders. Kibera is a fascinating place with raw eye-opening experiences, yet full of touching scenes. Explore Kibera by engaging with our local guides and spreading awareness.
