Expat Blogs in Kenya

The best way to find out about expat life when moving to Kenya is to learn from the experiences of people who have lived in the country before. Blogs written by expats who have settled down in Kenya or those that have even moved there for a short work assignment provide a great insight into the trials and tribulations of being an expat in Kenya. As well as providing accounts on formal procedures such as obtaining a visa or renting property in Kenya, these bloggers also give their personal views on being a foreigner and the challenges they faced in adapting to life in a new country.
