I am from the U.S and plan to move to Nairobi for work in a few months. This has been one of my dreams and I'm very excited about the prospect. I picked Nairobi although my job is very flexible and I could pretty much live anywhere I want in Africa. If you have any suggestions about other countries, please let me know.
My biggest concern is finding a place to live in a SAFE AREA that is AFFORDABLE. If you can be kind enough to give some information on HOUSING, I would be grateful. I basically want to know where I should start my search.
I don't have to commute a lot because most of my work will be done at home and abroad. However, I do want to live in a place where it is close to the "center" simply because I want to see and enjoy the city other than work. My budget for accommodation is between 500-700 dollars. Is that enough??
I guess I will go to Nairobi and stay in a hotel for the first week while looking for a place at the same time. Nonetheless, it would be helpful to know where to look.
So whatever you can tell me, I sincerely thank you.
