About us

Operating since 2009 and providing Nairobi area tours, Explore Kibera Tours began as a social tourism operator specializing in the Kibera slums and was designed to promote volunteerism and raise awareness. We offer safe walking tours for open-minded travelers and aim to benefit Kibera by hiring local knowledgable staff, supporting local development projects, and bringing a stream of demand to local artisans.

We have worked with notable hotels, travel agencies, film production crews, media, and university researchers to provide best in class tourism experiences.
