its now a dis-speakable informal settlement and a shanty village for the urban poor where basic human amenities are a challenge and hard find. and it seats between the affulent high end estates of Kabarak gardens, Lang"ata and Hurling am/ adams

Our team of 10 pax had a visit to Kibera slum with our guide Steve, the tour was well organized by Tsavo cats tours and safaris. The area has got so many people. We recommend to visit the place during the day with enough security.

This gave us a humbling experience. We were escorted by 3 residents of Kibera who showed us an orphanage and self help groups in Kibera

We drove through Kibera getting back to the AirBNB, and it was a flash-back to some of the less privileged parts of India. People living, laughing and managing with what they have.

Hi, Kibera tour is very easy to arrange, you can do it from anywhere, but for first-timers,it is strongly advisable to have someone on the ground or an agency if it is a group tour (I can recommend one).
