How close-knit is the expat community in this area? How do I get involved with it?
In addition to the fact that the UN has its African headquarters in Nairobi, many international companies have set up an office, so there is a large community of expatriates in the area of Nairobi.
Beside expat groups, what is the best way to make social connections outside of work?
Best way to make new connections is to be a member of a club. There are many clubs around: golf clubs, country clubs, mountain clubs and more. Another great way of entertaining and meeting new people is attending and hosting dinner at home. If you would like to go out, Nairobi offers many cinemas and theatres where you can meet people. Nairobi is also well-known for its great variety of restaurants. Your local embassy will often organize functions, too.
