Quite an incredible experience. We have done city walks in other countries (Peru, Tokyo, Mexico etc.) but this was like no other. First of all, these are former street kids so they show you their city from their perspective - and it's pretty grim. From the smelly rat-infested ledges under the bridge which was their home for a decade or so to the descriptions of how they survived - pick-pocketing, petty thievery etc. - to the time they were in jail - to the account of horrors they have witnessed (& continue to witness) - this is an intense walk that you should undertake being fully prepared to hear the gut-wrenching tales. The fact that these kids have not only survived their unfortunate beginnings - but have also been able to pick themselves up to make a decent and honest living - is astounding. They all speak incredibly good English - and they're mostly self-taught with no benefit of formal education. Uplifting and heart-wrenching at the same time. We did not stay for lunch. :-)
An amazing experience. The guides were very friendly, and respectful. The tour itself goes to places you wouldn’t otherwise see as a tourist, while talking to the guys, and hearing about their interesting stories. The amount of guides on the tour guarantees a personal touch, my and my girlfriend actually had more than one guide per person, so we got to hear from them all. The guys also made sure we felt super safe and comfortable throughout the tour. Towards the end of the tour, we visited a small local which had amazing local food, just what you need after the walking tour. All in all it was a perfect experience, which I can recommend to everyone.
Early morning game drive we saw Buffalos by the roadside,a few Giraffes,Black Backed Jackals,one Secretary Bird,a few Vultures. Highlights for me were one Black Rhino and a Lion pride with cubs along the road. There were five Crocodiles in the pond on the way out. Prompt pickup from our accommodation,friendly driver Tito,a good morning's outing to Nairobi National Park.
We had the most interesting morning with the guys. They are so open to share their personal stories and give in insight experiance on the other side of Nairobi and its inhabitants. They are looking out for their tour participants and make sure you have a great day.
We had a lovely day exploring the Nairobi National Park with our guide James! He was very knowledgable and happily answered all out questions! It was a day well spent out in nature.
