What to Expect

Come as I take you around the Gikomba and Muthurwa Open Markets. This is the ultimate Kenyan experience. This tour is not for the light hearted and is full of adrenalin. If you would like to experience the hard-core urban life in Nairobi, you are at the right place. Here we will get the chance to mingle with the locals and know how most Kenyans make their livelihood. After the tour, we will visit a local cafe for lunch and have lunch.

Gikomba is the largest and most-famous clothes-flea market in Kenya. Kenyans love searching for vintage treasures in the market, and Gikomba is the place to start this hunt. Its a labyrinth of narrow pathways, shouting vendors, and an amazing amount of clothes. A insider tip is to visit this market on a Saturday morning after 7 am because that is when the vendors bring their new bails of clothes.

Muthurwa Market is very busy and noisy market where they sell all kinds of things including clothes and food.

This is a great experience to see daily city life as well as finding great unique items to bring home.
