Driven by Passion
Our team’s founders and tour guides share a passion for connecting people, exchanging ideas, and telling alternative stories about the streets of Nairobi. Nai Nami began as a model to empower the city’ youth, harnessing the skills that they’ve gathered while growing up in diverse neighborhoods. Now, we offer a unique opportunity for travelers to experience a side of Nairobi that’s truly local, homegrown, and inspired by social change. All of our guides come from Mathare slum, dropped out of primary school and raised themselves at an early age in the bustling streets of Nairobi Downtown.
“My favourite experience from Nairobi. Four of the best story tellers I have met. Amazing story of not only where they have come from, but where they are going. Very inspiring. Would be #1 on my list of things to do in Nairobi.”
