Kenya is a founding member of the East African Community. Its territory is located on the equator. Kenya has a diverse geography and climate, and is home to the modern safari, expansive wildlife reserves, national parks, white sand beaches, and several world heritage sites such as Lamu. Also, Kenya is famous for its world-class athletes and wins numerous medals at the Olympics each time.

Living in Kenya

Living in Kenya will be like living in the great outdoors. Kenya is home to many beautiful and magical landscapes and rare wildlife. But that’s not all that there is to this country. It is one of the most developed countries in Africa. Though the crime rate in the country is high, and the culture of Kenya is orthodox, the big towns and cities paint a very different picture. Moving to Kenya will bring the much-required peace in anyone’s life as the work pressure in this country is fairly low and it is easy to maintain a work-life balance.

Politics in Kenya

Kenya is a Presidential Representative Democratic Republic, in which the President of the country is the head of both the state and the government. The government solely exercises executive power, while the legislative power is exercised jointly by the President, the Senate, and the National Assembly. The Judicial system is independent of the government, the Senate, and the National Assembly.

Economy of Kenya

Kenya has the largest GPD in east and central Africa. The major contributor to the Kenyan economy is agriculture. Kenya exports tea and coffee to many countries across the world, and has recently started exporting fresh flowers to a few countries in Europe. Other than agriculture and export, the service industry also contributes on a large scale to the economy of Kenya. In the recent years, higher education and tourism have also increased in the country and are being considered as significant contributors to the economy.

Buying or Renting Property in Kenya

The homes in Kenya, even in its biggest cities, are huge. This is contrary to many metropolitan cities across the globe. These homes might not have the fanciest layout or latest equipment, but you will surely have enough space to walk around, ample storage space, a deck to step out on and watch a beautiful sunset. There are apartments as well as individual homes that are readily available in Kenya at affordable prices.

Visa and Immigration

Writer Relocations provides visa and immigration services for Kenya and many other countries across the globe. You can get in touch with our executives for further assistance.

Schooling in Kenya

The national education system of Kenya is based on the 8-4-4 model. The students go through a compulsory basic education for the first 8 years, then through secondary education for the next 4, and then through 4 years of undergraduate school. Schooling in Kenya begins at the age of 6. Since 2003, primary education in Kenya is free, and since 2008, secondary education was also made free in the country. Though the number of students attending school has been increasing every year since 2008, Kenya is still number nine across the world when it comes to the number of children not attending school.

Weather in Kenya

The climate in Kenya changes constantly as you move across the country. The area by the Indian Ocean coastline experiences a warm and humid tropical climate, while the climate around the capital city, Nairobi, and closer to Mount Kenya is cooler. The climate in the western part of Kenya there is hot and dry and around Lake Victoria, which is the largest tropical fresh-water lake in the world, it also becomes a little humid. The north-eastern regions along the border with Somalia and Ethiopia experience an arid desert-like climate.
