    Hi BHarati,

    Nakuru is a small town, its 2hrs drive from Nairobi city, Its a laid back town and no cinema halls or anything it is small, if you have lived in Bangalore a city then it would be a difficult to adjust though is nice and peaceful
    There a lot indians there, tough i do not stay there as i stay in Nairobi and do not have any relatives there.

    love
    alpa:cheers

    Hi Alpa,
    My name is Ramya and I am planning to move to Kenya with my family by next year in Feb My husband has got a job there... But really worried about the security issues. Is it that bad as projected by media and in internet articles? I have also read about carjackking and kidnapping of adults as well as chidren happen there very often. Can you pl give me some advise on this? The company is giving accomodation South C since it is very close to my husband's office. How is this area?
    Thank you.
    Ramya

    Dear remmiya,

    Nairobi is not bad, you haveto be careful at night, you can go out that is fine. South c is a indian area and you will like it, media will talk about anything, Naiobi is very nice,there is a big supermarket in that area and there is capital centre in that area which is a shopping mall it has cinema halls too

    you will like it

    love
    alpa:cheers

    Hi Alpa,
    Really nice to see your reply and thank you for the same. You have said that it is not safe to move at night... So that means is it really very dangerous to move at night since we are given car by the company and also in case of any emergency what should we do?
    I have 2 kids (my son is 6 yrs and daughter is 3 and half yrs old) . Are there any good schools in South C can you pl guide me on this.
    How is it safe for a women to drive a car there becasue my husband's company is willing to give a car to me also provided I drive it. I have read that there are carjackking and kidnapping taking place there hence i am not so very confident to drvie the car there. Can you guide me in this too.
    Regards
    Ramya
