    Kibera slums community development program
    Stop: 6 hours
    You will be driven through the Ngong road, visit the Soweto Village homesteads, and then continue to the Curio (handcrafts) Workshop where you will witness how those living in the Kibera slums are innovative in making ornaments out of animal bones. Continue with visits of the Nursery schools and pass by to see the water vendor and the shower shop as you meet other slum dwellers mingling with you as they carry on with their daily chores. Enter a typical Kibera-house. Feel welcome in one of the houses in Kibera and ask your questions about the day-to-day live in Kibera. Walk and see a Biogas plant, the only one of its kind in Africa which will use human waste as its raw material in the production of Biogas which will be used as cooking gas as well as lighting about 200 households once it is accomplished and commissioned. Proceed to one of the community based School run with the donations from well wishers which is a real highlight of Kibera schools. You will then be escorted back to your car and dropped back at your Nairobi Hotel/Home. Hotel Pickup

I enjoyed with this half day tour with a driver, Stephen, and a guide, Ismael, both from Kibera community. They were so kind and friendly, and talked their own experience while walking around. It was great opportunity to see how people live and cope each other in Kidera slums. Many chances to talk to people there with good passion.
It’s a must-go tour to know about Kenya!

It seems like where you go depends on guide.
Better to go with sneakers, because you go up and down in Kibera.

Thank you Akira for reviewing the Kibera guided tour . It is good to hear how peaceful the slum is from the visitor's point of view. This will intern help other's who could be interested to go ahead and book for the same tour.

I was picked up from my accommodations right on time, and off we went to Kibera. Francis Ngei was amazing at taking me the the location where I would be guided through the slum. He gave me a drive-by mini tour of his own pointing to important landmarks and facts about Kenya. I appreciated his friendly and caring conversation, and he's an excellent driver. If ever you're in town, Francis should definitely be your driver. The actual tour through Kibera Slums was a good experience as well. Definitely recommended!
