A Place in the Sun Kenya – About Kenya

Kenya has one of the strongest economies in Africa and with a politically stable government; making it a very popular location. The country is able to offer a luxurious expat lifestyle with large houses, domestic help and very high salaries. The country offers spectacular wildlife (lions, cheetah, elephants and black rhinos), wilderness and has desserts, snow-capped mountains and lush beaches.

A Place in the Sun Kenya – Buying a Property in Kenya

Accommodation in Kenya can be expensive. Often it is best to rent a property in the short term. The accommodation is usually spacious and often comes with a swimming pool and gym facilities. Once you are ready to seek a property to purchase, it would be wise to enlist the help of an estate agent who will know the local market.

A Place in the Sun Kenya – Education and Schools in Kenya

Kenya’s education system has undergone many changes over the past few years. There are some very good government schools but most expats will still decide to educate their children at an international school. Most international schools will be found in Nairobi, the capitol city. The fees are usually high and it would be wise to negotiate an allowance for this when agreeing a salary package.

A list of schools can be found on the following site: http://www.expat-quotes.com

A Place in the Sun Kenya – Travel in Kenya

Flying is the quickest way to travel between major cities with two or three domestic flights a day between Nairobi, Mombasa and Nakuru. The public transport system in Kenya is sadly under developed, with most people opting to travel by bus rather than train. Expats should always try to travel on air-conditioned buses and although they are quite reliable, delays are very common.
