Dear Friends, I shall soon be moving to Nairobi, most probably in April 2018. I have concerns about the housing accommodation and which areas are safe to live in. Our Company is located in Industrial area on Homa Bay Road. Is there any residential housing nearby? I shall be looking for 1+ bed room single accommodation. Is it wise to live nearby or the downtown which area is more safe and convenient? How about the transportation? Is it safe to ride public transport or need to arrange private pick & drop taxi? Appreciate if some one guide me in this regards.

I would recommend areas such as South B, South C, Langata which are close to industrial area and for transport, use taxi like uber as you get to understand the area. Sarah.
