Kibera, Nairobi Overview

Kibera is Nairobi's largest slum and the second largest slum in the world. Home to about 2,50,000 people, it is divided into several villages such as Kianda, Laini Saba, Mashimoni, Soweto East and Siranga that can be explored via guided or self-guided tours.

The Uganda Railway Line passes through Kibera, and one can walk along the tracks to explore the neighbourhood. Most of the locals can speak English. The area has a festive atmosphere where one can hear African music playing and see people dancing to it. Visitors can climb up to Kibera’s highest point for views of the entire slum. There is a small stream near Kibera’s lowest point. It is a must-visit location for photography and sociological and altruistic reasons. There are many shops scattered around Kibera. It is advisable not to be intrusive while touring, to ask before taking pictures, and not venture too far into the residential area. The neighbourhood is safe but always be aware of the surroundings.
