Being born in a Maasai village, I conquered the wild jungle and now I'm doing the same in a concrete jungle. I'm a charming Nairobi Tech Mufti (meaning original), consulting with various startups.

Sankei is the guy who is able to get you connected to Kenyan startup people. I met a lot of people who are passionate about what they are doing and I got very inspired by them. He kindly redesigned the tour according to my personal interests and shared very interesting stories of himself, cultures, histories and startup scenes in Kenya. I would definitely hit him up when I visit there again and highly recommend everyone who is looking for an exciting opportunity. This is something you should give it a try.

Sankei is very knowledgeable on the tech scene in Kenya. You will get a good understanding of the entrepreneurial talent in the country. Although I personally did not do the 3 day excursion with him, I'm sure to make up for the lost time on my next visit.

If truly knowing a city and a country is what you crave, this delivers. You can do a Safari, try local food and do a so-called "slum tour" but meeting some of the brightest young minds in Kenya and learning about their start up tech companies sort of brings it all together. Thanks Sankei!

Sankei is a wonderful guide that not only knows and introduced me to many of the most interesting entrepreneurs in Nairobi, he is always in for discussion and in-depth understanding of the landscape in Kenya. I couldn't have hoped for a better dive into the Silicon Savannah discovering a great variety of ideas, businesses and driven youngsters. Sankei has also proven very flexible, to tailor the program to my very expectations, and showed great commitment in arranging meetings, visits and drives across Nairobi! Businessman himself, with work experience across the world, he is the perfect link and introduction to Kenyan start-up world. Thank you again!

My husband and I greatly enjoyed the 3-days trip with Sankei. He went out of his way to give us the best experience, from touring the national park for hours trying to see the animals, to trying out great cafes, and delicious local nyama choma, and meeting with locals, seeing the different aspects of progress and meeting people of different backgrounds. It was very enriching. We highly recommend!

I've interacted a little with Nairobi's tech side but taking the trip gave me a first hand experience and better understanding as to why Nairobi is known as the Silicon Savannah. The mix of people and activities was great as I got to see how different technologies that had been developed in Nairobi were positively impacting the lives of those using them. Sankei was insightful throughout. Best of all, he let the people developing and using the different innovations tell their story. I found this to be very good.
