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.

As well as providing accounts on formal procedures such as obtaining a visa or renting property in Kenya, these bloggers also give you their personal views on being a foreigner and the challenges they faced in adapting to life in a new country.
