Experience kibera slum from the inside

Nairobi, Kenya

We came to Nairobi interested in Kibera Slum to see a different side of the city. This tour was a great insight not only into the inaccuracy of western stereotypes of the area but also into the fantastic initiatives taking place in Kenya. Diddy was a fantastic guide and knowledgeable about Kibera because of his own personal experience with it. Ask him about the goat story!

The tour of Kibera is truly an amazing experience. If you do nothing else in Nairobi you should do this! It's an incredibly interesting and friendly place and Diddy is the perfect host/guide. You get to meet some enterprising and creative people, see a ton of adorable kids in school, and learn all about life in Kibera. And for those who are concerned, it's totally safe, in fact it felt safer than other parts of Nairobi.

I did the slum tour walk with Diddy and a really great morning. Diddy is a great host good fun and his tour is very informative. You will get to see some real insider places and stories of Kibera. We went to visit an art studio (which hosts some internationally renowned artist), a workshop where jewelry and ornaments are produced out of animal bones and a local school. Most important, you will meet some great folks from the neighborhood. This was definitely one of my best experiences in East Africa

With did the tour with Diddy with our daughter of 1,5 years and it was very impressive and an eye-opener. The slum is a village in itself and it is wonderful to see how people make the best out of it and have such an entrepreneurial mindset. Thanks Diddy!

the Kibera tour with Diddy is very impressive! Seeing how the people are living and still being so friendly and positive in these circumstances makes you wonder about your yourself. Diddy is very nice, knowledgeable and friendly. He's simply a great guide!
