About
DALA AFRICA is an indigenous firm harnessing Kenya's rich tourism and volunteerism culture for good. We specifically invest in creating unique experiences for our clients targeting under-served markets. We exclusively employ locals to provide employment where it matters. We look forward to having you on-board. DALA was originally founded by Dr. Erick Komolo, Kenyan Lawyer and Social Entrepreneur to address youth unemployment, high teenage pregnancies and school dropouts in his rural village in South Western Kenya. We cultivate part of our profits to this mission through MAKLWETA, a charitable trust Dr. Komolo founded.

What to expect
  • Kibera is Africa’s second largest informal settlement after Soweto, South Africa. With an estimated one million inhabitants drawn from across the entire East Africa crowded in a 2.5 sq. KM piece of land, Kibera presents you a unique opportunity to experience the other Kenya that is less talked about but that’s full of promise. Erick, our founder, himself lived in Kibera for sometime as he was trying to get professional foothold and has many relatives still living there. Several prominent international figures and celebrities have visited Kibera over the past few years including President Obama, Ban Ki Moon (former UN Secretary General), Gordon Brown (former British Prime Minister) and Bono amongst others to see for themselves this unique settlement ecosystem. You will have opportunity to also see several UN and NGO projects covering housing (slum upgrading), education and health amongst others currently ongoing in the slum geared toward poverty alleviation. Our package gives you a special opportunity to understand the local economy and create employment for our professional youth guides from the slums.

Interesting tour but be prepared to walk over fairly steep uneven sometimes slippery terrain. Don’t wear sandals, wear good hiking shoes or boots. Our visit was after heavy rain and was very slippery, not a problem if you’re used to hiking. Also wear suitable clothing as you’ll probably get dirty but after the tour, you can stop at a stall where you can get your shoes cleaned and enjoy a cold drink for a few shillings.

Our group of 8 did this tour on our first day in Nairobi. It really opened our eyes to the REAL Nairobi and we are happy we did it! Prepare yourself first wearing closed toe/water proof shoes (rubber boots are best). Be mindful of the culture and dress appropriately. You will learn so much and get a chance to support the community. I would do this tour again! Thanks Erick, Many Blessings to you!
