If you want to experience the awe-inspiring scenery of East Africa, see safari animals up close in the wild and make a real difference to a local community, TEFL in Kenya could be perfect for you! Working in Kenya is a real chance to get away from the hustle and bustle of modern life and try something completely different. Its stunning landscapes and natural beauty are known around the world, with truly amazing sights such as the Great Rift Valley. Safari is one of the things Kenya is most famous for and rightly so – elephants, giraffes, buffalo, leopards, zebras and many more animals can be regularly seen in the wild. Kenya is also home to fascinating and often ancient traditions from the melting pot of so many tribal cultures.
With extensive recent droughts in the area, diversifying the economy of the local area is important and one method of doing so is through learning English to help with trade. English can open up many new opportunities for the local people, who have previously had very little influence from the outside world.
TEFL in Kenya would be best suited to someone happy to escape the hustle and bustle of the contemporary life, as there are few television channels and not much in the way of internet or mobile phone reception here! However, if you want a chance to experience the real unspoilt Africa, this is the opportunity of a lifetime!
