Teaching English in Kenya

Kenya is situated on the east coast of Africa and is a mixture of beaches, mountains, savannah and desert. It is an economic powerhouse and there is a big expat community, especially in the capital, Nairobi. Nairobi is also known as the safari capital of the world and living here means you can enjoy an urban lifestyle while still being able to easily access the wilderness of Kenya.
All over Kenya you are able to lead an exciting lifestyle. Kenya is famous for its wildlife and when you come here you will realise why. There are many game parks where you can go on safari and look for elephants, giraffe, lion, leopard, cheetah, rhino and antelope. A balloon trip during the annual wildebeest migration from the Masai Mara to the Serengeti is a must. If you want, you can also climb high peaks or visit lakes in the Great Rift Valley. Around Mombasa there are some gorgeous beaches just waiting to be explored.
Culturally speaking there are a few UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Kenya. Lamu is one such place and every year during the Lamu Cultural Festival the community celebrates the past and the future with traditional poetry, henna painting and donkey races. The Lake Turkana festival is an opportunity to experience traditional dances and food. Even better is the annual Camel Derby Festival which showcases colourful camel races. 

Teaching Opportunities

While Kiswahili is the official language, English is seen as a necessity for progress and development. English is the language of instruction in schools. There are many foreigners working in Kenya and teaching is no exception. You are likely to find work in Nairobi, Mombasa and Nakuru in public schools or private language schools. Salaries are not high but will allow you to live comfortably.
There are many volunteer opportunities for teaching in more rural settings.
