Famously known as the green city in sun,Nairobi, the capital of Kenya is amongst the most vibrant, cosmopolitan and fast paced cities in Africa with a nice balanced feel of wildlife and a contemporary touch.
Despite the colorful decoration of Nairobi City, it remains unexplored by locals who get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the city as they try to keep up with the ever rising cost of living.
A survey conducted by Turnup.travel; a travel concierge and social media agency,revealed that a big number of Nairobians haven’t explored the city, but given a chance to do so, they would jump at the opportunity. One major reason cited was inadequate marketing of sites and scenes to locals by stake holders whose focus is mainly on foreigners.
Turnup.Travel has announced a full day photographic city tour and nightlife experience dubbed #NairobaeIGtour to be held on Saturday, July 1, 2017. The 24-hour dawn to dusk to dawn city tour is a fusion of history curated by Owaahh, architecture, faces and places of Nairobi from the lens of Kenya’s top photographers, filmmakers, bloggers, social media influencers and tourists.”
Top content creators will come together with tourists on the day to show the beauty of the great city of Nairobi. The initiative is aimed at raising an awareness and funding where all proceeds will go to Homeless of Nairobi to support underprivileged children.
