Two Case Studies in one: Kenyan Tourism and Kibera as a squatter settlement


The lovely people at Channel 4 are hoping you with your GCSE Geography. They have written an article on foreign tourists going to Kibera as part of their vacation itinerary. Read this article and think to your self:

Are local people benefiting economically or socially?

Is this a type of sustainable tourism? How could you make it more sustainable?

Will it improve quality of life or standard of living in Kibera? How could their lives be improved more?

What do the tourists learn from their experience? What else do you think they could learn? Why might this be of more benefit for them and for people living in Kibera?
