Why are so many people moving to Kenya?
Kenya has so much going for it. It is a culturally diverse country that offers an exciting and unique lifestyle. There are incredible opportunities available for people wishing to start their own business, obtain employment, study at a university or simply immerse themselves in the amazing culture. The main reasons so many people move to Kenya from the UK include:
- One of the strongest economies in Africa
Kenya has one of the most advanced economies in Africa and one of the biggest economies in the east and central Africa. It is still considered an emerging economy with most of the workforce being employed in primary production. The tourism, telecommunications, and higher education sectors have grown rapidly in the past decade, helping to make the country much more prosperous than some of its neighbours. Kenya is also a hub for financial services and the Nairobi stock exchange is the 4th-largest exchange in Africa.
- Some great opportunities for starting a business
If you are intending on starting a business, Kenya is a great place to do so. The food production industry has advanced rapidly in recent years and manufacturing is just starting to boom. It is now easier to find talented employees in the area and it is a great time to start a business in Kenya. China has started investing heavily in Kenya, which indicates the country has a strong economic future.
- A pristine natural environment
Kenya has a spectacular landscape that is quite diverse. It includes a stunning coastline, luscious rainforests, wide open deserts, and mountainous areas. The government has done an excellent job of maintaining national parks and wildlife is abundant.
- Great food
The cuisine is quite varied and influenced by many other countries. Stews are very common and the street food is delicious.
- Incredible weather!
Kenya has many sunny days each year, which is attractive to many people moving there from the UK —put your umbrellas away! There are two wet seasons in Kenya, from March to June and October to December.
- One of the best education systems in Africa
The education system in Kenya is one of the best in Africa and has a strong focus on producing students with the technical skills necessary to obtain a great job.
The education system is separated into 5 different levels.
- Early childhood education (3 years)
