Our journey started 7 years ago as hosts of a shared apartment in Nairobi. The name 'Vamos' (meaning 'let's go' in Spanish) was suggested by our first guest, a lady from Spain, at one of the evening bonding sessions we used to arrange for our guests. We have since been building on this personal connection with our guests, our passion for connecting guests with locals, and our personalized offers.
We are currently one of Kenya's leading vacation rental platforms, trusted by more than 200,000 travelers. Our fantastic team and massive goodwill from our clients have enabled us to connect more than 10,000 travelers with local hosts, local bars & restaurants, places to visit, and local experiences.
We are passionate about supporting community experiences in the destinations we cover. In collaboration with tourism players on the ground in multiple towns, we have compiled authentic local activities you could engage in as you travel. One of the notable initiatives is the Ngoloko fisherfolks CBO in Kikambala, a group of young fishermen from Kikambala in Kilifi county. Read more about them and find other experiences here.
Lynne and her group recently visited Ngoloko along the Kikambala beach. See the video below for more:
As we like to say here at Vamos: Where will you go next? Plenty of affordable and memorable Kenyan stays and engaging local experiences await. Let's explore Kenya together!
