I am a teacher by profession currently living in Nairobi working for a project I founded called the Xavier Project. We provide education, employment and media opportunities for refugees, primarily from the Democratic Republic of Congo. 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.
