Kenya, Nairobi

Kenya is the economic, financial, and transport hub of East Africa. Its real GDP growth has averaged over 5% for the last decade, and the country’s governance system has been fairly stable. As one of the cheapest countries to live and work, Kenya enables people to get ample time to do what they love.

As a tourist, you can go on a safari on Kenya’s vast savannahs, walk a sandy coast or climb the heights of Mt. Kenya. You can also visit the Maasai Mara plains and you would love the incredible variety of animals you’ll see, as well as the popular Giraffe Centre, which is not too far from the capital city, Nairobi.

There is also the Nairobi National Park which will make you see a variety of wildlife including the endangered black rhino, the zebra, cheetahs, hyenas and over 400 migratory bird species with an entrance fee of $50.

In effect, you can do all the above without breaking the bank, and the other interesting development is that while on a tour, one has the chance to opt for affordable mini-buses known as boda-boda motorcycle taxi instead of the traditional vehicles that may take more fare.
