Things to do when you travel to Nairobi from Turnup.Travel Instagram Tours

Turnup.Travel brings Kenya’s top content creators, journalists, artists, travellers and the expat communities living in Nairobi alike to collaborate in an effort to showcase the lesser-known, softer side and usually overlooked facets of the city. Conceptualized in July 2017 as a framework to enhance collaboration and skills transfer among content creators and provide a platform for commercial and public sector brands to cooperate with influencers through travel, a Turnup.Travel Instagram tour is a visual, sensual and photographic tour that takes you to the ‘must-see’ places of any particular theme with an activity-powered itinerary. It brings together content creators, brands and other stakeholders to co-create and share experiences online. Thus an Instagram Tour is an immersive consumer experience and destination marketing initiative organized by Turnup.Travel in partnership with the private sector and government. Turnup.Travel has previously organized six IG Tours in Nairobi have thematically focussed on the history of architecture + heritage, wild side of the side, culinary experience across rooftop restaurants and an action-packed one around adventure. We also did one around culture and the 6th one on the new normal in Nairobi.
Nairobi, with its population of over 4 million diverse populace and cosmopolitan vibe that shines through its art, food, entertainment, architecture, cultures and values of communities that call the ‘green city under the sun’ home. The Instagram Tours presents an opportunity both personally and collectively to co-create and connect people across the board by casting a spotlight on the heart, spirit and soul of the city whilst showcasing its diversity, beauty and flavours.
