    Wish I had discovered InterNations before I relocated to Kenya. It's really helpful on both a private and a professional level.

Welcome to Our Network of Expatriates in Kenya!

Jambo and welcome to the InterNations expat communities in Kenya! InterNations is a global network for expatriates across the globe with a mission of making life easier for expats. Our communities in Kenya can help you deal with any potential problems or issues you may have with living and working in the country. You can start out looking in our guides on relocating to Kenya, written by our editorial staff, and if you don't find the answers you're looking for there, then head over to our forums to ask our members directly. Our members have a wide collective experience and are always happy to help out fellow expats and make sure they get settled into life in East Africa smoothly. Whether your question is, “what security measures will I need to take living in Nairobi?” or “what special vaccinations will I need before moving to Kenya?”, our members will have seen and done it all and can put you on the right track. When your mind is set at ease over any potential issues, you can focus fully on enjoying life in Kenya. And once you arrive, you can start attending events and joining groups to build your social network abroad!

With InterNations, you never stand alone. Whether you are moving to another country or going on a business trip somewhere — our communities around the world are there to make you feel at home wherever you are. Feel free to check out our vibrant InterNations Communities in countries like Bahrain or Malaysia.

Read Up on Expat Life in Kenya

Kenya will immediately conjure up images of open savannah and wildlife, but the country is one of the most developed in East Africa and the continent as a whole. While there are plenty of delights out in the countryside, visitors will find a wide variety of activities to pique their interest and help them discover more and more about a fascinating land. Expatriates come to Kenya for a variety of reasons, many involved in conservation and humanitarian work, while telecommunications and a burgeoning technology industry also attract foreign workers. Whatever your field of work or interest, you’ll find plenty of assistance and like-minded individuals here in our community.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities around the world. Meet fellow global minds in your city of residence or get to know local expatriates before you're moving or traveling abroad and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Portugal or Germany, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.

The Network for Expats in Kenya

The members of InterNations come from a wide variety of cultural backgrounds and are involved in a huge variety of industries, but all also go through an approval process before they can join the community. That means that you can be sure that whenever you interact with other members or ask for advice, you’ll be getting a response that is both accurate and courteous. If you’re ready to take things a step further, our communities also organize a host of offline events, from activities for women only to dining and sampling some of the fascinating cuisine in Africa. You can also meet fellow expats sharing your language, or even start your own group with some like-minded people. Our larger community-wide social events also offer fascinating networking opportunities with all sorts of people and are not to be missed!
