Ozokwenza

We offer an inspirational "off-the-beaten-track" experience of Nairobi, guided by youth from slums who raised themselves on the streets of Nairobi City Centre. During a personal, one-on-one, 3-hours walking tour in Downtown, you will experience the city centre through the eyes of street children. Get the real insights into their way of life, get captivated by their life stories and ghetto-energy, learn from their street skills, ask all your questions, shop at local markets, bargain with your guides to pay a local price, eat street food, have tea with mechanics, see street art among and last but not least become friends with them.

Social Impact: By booking a Nai Nami Tour you give disadvantaged youth from slums an opportunity to earn a regular income and inspire them as a role model.

The 4 tour guides were absolutely phenomenal! They were great at communicating prior to our booking ( I sent a few questions to them) and during the entire tour. The tour itself was extremely eye-opening and gave me a whole new perspective on life. The things these fine folks went through and thousands of others are going through, would break most of us, but it has made them stronger. I loved their friendly, outgoing personalities and the protection they provided for us! I would have never visited these parts of Nairobi without them. We were able to interact with numerous bus drivers, shop keepers and regular citizens so it is something I'll never forget. This is a tour you can't miss! Book one today and help these fine folks continue their mission to better the lives of the slum kids!

What an incredible experience. If you’re thinking about this experience, just book it! Like other folks have mentioned, I felt incredibly safe with the two guides I was with (I was solo traveling, and on that day the only person on the tour). I get the sense that every tour is a bit different - when I went, my main guide, Mrembe, shared parts of his life story and Nairobi’s recent history through the places we visited, which was so meaningful. The guides seem to know everyone in town, and it was fun to share that experience. Lastly, the work they’re doing to support a school in the community they grew up in - funded in large part through these tours - is incredible, and I’m so happy the opportunity exists to support them and this work.

I had an amazing time getting to know Godfrey and his friends. They each have remarkable stories and were highly informative about Nairobi's downtown, uptown, and slum neighborhoods. They were very protective and knowledgeable as well. I highly suggest this tour for a unique perspective on life in Nairobi.

Been in Kenya for two weeks, and this is one of my favorite experiences. The guys were dope, and the market we went through had items literally half of what I paid in other areas. These fellows know their stuff and are a lot of fun.
