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.
We are Kissmart, Cheddaz and Donga, former street children and youth from the Mathare slum. With the aim to give youth like us a future in life, we founded the social enterprise Nai Nami. We build on street skills and life stories of former street children who don't have school certificates to give them a future in life as storytelling guides in Nairobi.

We will take you through the bustling streets of Downtown in the city centre, which used to be our former home. It is a vibrant place where local people do business, shop at hidden markets, eat at Kibandas and enjoy the authentic Nairobi life. Each street has its own stories and secrets, which we will share with you.
