Hi I am Arvind from India.

I am a brand and communications specialist. I currently have an offer from Nairobi which is offering me $4000 post deductions/month.

I currently draw INR 2 lakhs (Approx $3100) post deductions / month in Bangalore India. Is this a viable option for a move? I believe the living cost of Nairobi is much higher than India specially for accommodation, education and healthcare (the latter 2 not being very high in India).

If they improve the offer to $5500/month would it make sense to consider if its just this salary and no benefits?

We live in 3BR gated community and the little one goes to a great school here. Don't want to compromise on either and yet be able to save. We are 3 of us the wifey, me and our little girl (aged 2). No vices!! :)

Hello Guys,

I will be shifting to Nairobi this early June. Would like to make friends there specially couples as we are Indian couple.

Also would be really helpful if anyone can share the current situation there and any important tips to consider before moving in.

Hi Saurabh,

Welcome to Nairobi, Its a nice city (except for traffic, it can be a pain).....there is a very large Indian community in Nairobi, so you are surely going to feel at home

I hope you have a great time in Nairobi....if you need any info let me know....would be happy to help

Thanks Saurabh for the warm welcome and comfort about the city.

Can suggest between Thika and Nairobi which would be better place to stay as my office will be in Thika and as you suggested traffic is a big issue i may end up spending lots of time in traffic if i stay in nairobi.

Can also let me know how would be Thika to stay considering indian community and food and other utilities availability. Also in terms of safety.

Saurabh Karnawat

Hi saurabh,
U can stay in Nbo. As it will be against d traffic both time n u may reach in 30 to 45 min.
Thika is a town with slow life style,
Nbo u will get everything u n ur wife/ family needs easily, good flats/ house, friends circle., Hotel, restaurant, hospital, school, market, malls, theater, shops etc. Comparatively better,
Hope this helps,

Thanks Prashant. Make sense.
