The Guest house is situated in the heart of Olympic Estate a bustling Nairobi neighbourhood. Although you feel in the middle of a vibrant community there is also a strong sense of security as the guest house is beyond two guarded gates.
Transport into town is incredibly easy as you are only a stone's throw from Olympic Bus terminal, with round the clock buses going directly to the centre of Nairobi.
Olympic is an estate which borders Kibera, the biggest slum in Africa and this is of interest to many guests who may have work or interest in Kibera. We can arrange tours or assistance with navigating within Kibera, and if you just want to soak up the atmosphere we can help you with that a well!

I am a teacher by profession currently living in Nairobi working for a project I founded called Xavier Project. We provide education, employment and media opportunities for refugees living in urban areas. I love Nairobi and enjoy many different aspects of it from the simmering technology revolution to the traditional customs and the simple way of life found in my surrounding neighbourhood. As a result I have a diverse selection of friends here who I can introduce you to and who can give you the full Nairobi story.
I also spend a lot of time in Kampala where my other listings are located. I have been coming to Uganda regularly for the last four years and in that time I ticked a lot of the tourism boxes so I can offer advice on the many opportunities Uganda has to offer. In particular I have developed a walking tour route around Kampala, which has more gems than people give it credit for. If I'm feeling energetic I can take you myself or give you a bespoke map! Included in the itinerary are Kabaka's Palace and Lake, Rubage Cathedral, the minaret at Gaddafi's Mosque (top of - great views), Owino market, the craft shop complex, and Uganda Parliament, wrapping up with a drink in Boda Boda bar overlooking the Golf Course. A very nice afternoon adventure.
