LIVING IN NAIROBI
Go Volunteer Africa's volunteers enjoy an extremely unique experience not only in the work they do but also in the atmosphere they live in. Volunteers in Nairobi are housed at either, our in-country Coordinator’s home, host family or volunteers’ house, depending on the project site. All accommodation environments allows volunteers to meet other travelers and to get to know each other better outside the work-site and forge friendships that will last a lifetime.
The accommodations of course are clean and comfortable and will quickly become your second home. The African and western style toilet and shower facilities are shared between 4 or 10 people and, while we can’t always guarantee the hottest water, the facilities are more than adequate. The accommodation is always equipped with a lounge, TV, Kitchen, hand washing facilities, telephones, and spare electricity sockets. Life at the accommodations facilities is simple, unsophisticated and fun, perfect for unwinding from a busy day!
You will be provided with three good quality meals every day, so you shouldn’t ever feel hungry. The food you will be provided with will consist of delicious local dishes, using fresh produce to create a cultural and tasty experience! Typically your diet will consist of rice, bread, ugali, sweet-potatoes, beans, noodles, corn bread, banana with vegetables such as sukuma, cabbage, avocado, spinach and eggplant. Water and tea/coffee are included throughout your stay whilst soft drinks (coke, sprite etc) and other beverages can be purchased from the local supermarkets in town.
The hard work volunteers put in during the week undoubtedly warrants some fun and relaxation during evening free time and on the weekends. During the week we organize a variety of activities for volunteers in the evenings. We often play football (soccer), cards and board games or chill out around the bar or go out for a dance getting to know fellow volunteers from around the world. Musical ballads are known to break out from time to time as well as the always entertaining pub-quiz nights.
Yet one of the biggest perks of volunteering in Kenya lies in the plethora of weekend outings we organize. We arrange city day tours and long-weekend safaris. No matter what your interests, there is always something for everyone to enjoy!
