Hi dhfpvawqon :) will be happy to help out anybody who needs information on the following countries Morocco, Cameroon. I visited others like tchad, Ghana and Ivorycoast. So all questions are welcomes prayskin-tone-5black_heart
Will answer u tonight. I may introduce you to someone who can be of assistance
Just so you know that i sent ur info on IG
gkvbwnhiuoyid Very interested!
jgrdoqwl Thanks for sharing! So much to explore on that continent it's almost overwhelming! Glad to hear you're finding success hunting down wifi.

I spent 2020 in South Africa, but the pandemic halted me from travelling beyond their borders. Now I'm back to work and hungry to find a way to reliable wifi on the continent in 2022

I imagine major cities will open up options, but frankly I love it more rural (which presents obvious wifi challenges).

If mobile networks and a portable modem are working that's great to hear! Keen to explore Senegal/Tanzania/Kenya next year if I can get the right intel. I'll be following your adventure!
brjbcrgf FYI ๐Ÿ™‚
Thanks so much U0281S7LYDQ! Iโ€™m planning this Cape to Cairo/ digital nomads in Africa trip for (hopefully) 2022 so this will be a massive help! Will let you know as I progress.
amazing source of info!
Dont hesitate. Am around!!!
Soโ€ฆ Favourite spots out of huge cities? ๐Ÿ˜„

๐Ÿ‘† hrjgxrdnumxmu my WIP ๐Ÿ˜„
I might have found the holy grail in Zanzibar City, itโ€™s called Halotel. 8-20mbit in prime time.
My 2 cents :smile:

Soโ€ฆ I am organizing a conference in Africa and it looks like Ghana and Ethiopia are getting cool for internet and remote work community, although mostly in big cities.

Mozambique is incredible, ISIS is only in the north of the country (+1000km away) while Maputo is quite calm and betting hard on education. The beaches are insaneee!

Angola is expensive and Luanda chaotic, dirty and expensive. Love the people though and a lot of potential in Lobito for the future.

Egypt - Have some people in Dahab and they are quite happy.
ykukafamyypgv I really wanted to go to Mozambique now but a fellow traveler just arrived there and apparently the covid restrictions are hard (and beaches closed), so, it will be for another time :sweat_smile:. Do you have more information about the internet there?
oh damn, thatโ€™s not good. I am def speaking outside covid world.
Internet is decent and there are a surprising number of coworking spaces in Maputo.
Cowork Lab is from a friend of mine, there are 6 of them already.
๐Ÿ›ฌ cblrtzwav just arrived in Mindelo,Cape Verde, #africa
Howโ€™s the internet at Cameroon, Ivory Coast, Morrocco and Chad? If you stay in the capital, is it fast enough to do a zoom call?
Interruptions happen a lot. But i have to say that i could live with the speed. Thats about cameroon. Morocco is decent. Chad is slow still and ivory coast i dont know. Havent been in a while
๐Ÿ›ฌ babyiikh just arrived in ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ฟ Dar es Salaam,Tanzania, #africa
Anybody tried Tunis? How would you compare it with Istanbul?
๐Ÿ›ฌ viuywnnq just arrived in ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ช Nairobi,Kenya, #africa
๐Ÿ›ฌ cgqxnxyb just arrived in ๐Ÿ™ Kumasi,Ghana, #africa
I had a trip planned to morocco. It looks like the "Government of Morocco has put into place a ban on travel to and from the cities of Casablanca, Marrakech, and Agadir." as well as a curfew between 5AM and 9PM. Would love to hear from someone who is on the ground - how bad is the situation?
๐Ÿ›ฌ lxzgfej just arrived in ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ณ Tunis,Tunisia, #africa
I was wondering the same thing!
I just got back. It wasnโ€™t too bad, but a lot of restaurants were closed as well as a good amount of tourist attractions!
Were enough things closed you felt like it impacted your experience?
```This looks amazing! Depending on when I would definitely be down to try something like this out! Do you have a rough date? Also, there is a scottish cyclist who biked from Cairo to Cape Town in 2015 (after the split up of Sudan) so if he can figure that out I'm sure this can be done! ```
The name of the cyclist is Mark Beaumont if youโ€™re curious (NomadList wonโ€™t let me post a link yet)
fmlzvmijittipho Hey! Kind of jealous youโ€™re in Istanbul right now, I love that city haha. Any updates on Working remote in Cote dโ€™ivoire. Wifi Speed, tips, etc.? Iโ€™d like to spend some time in a tropical African country that speaks French this winter and Cote Dโ€™Ivoire was one of the first that popped into my mind.
Hi! My name is Loren and Iโ€™m looking for a tropical, French speaking country to work as a digital nomad in. Ideally it would have fast and reliable enough wifi to run video calls. Does anyone have any recommendations? Iโ€™m looking at Cote dโ€™Ivoire or DRC would be incredible, Cameroon looks pretty awesome as well. Thank you for your time ๐Ÿ™‚
If it matters Iโ€™d be trying to escape the winter, so from early January to beginning of March
๐Ÿ›ฌ mvmzjidlquwy just arrived in Kilifi,Kenya, #africa
My best guess would be Ivory Coast as many French telecommunication companies are there, plus I have friends working from there full time, so it shouldn't be that bad. DRC is more uncertain (I'm originally from there) plus everything is very expensive there. I'm planning on going to DRC next summer, would be curious to hear about digital nomad experiences there.
hyukwpag I appreciate that! and thatโ€™s awesome youโ€™re from DRC, one of these days I want to see Congo. I donโ€™t think itโ€™ll be this trip though, Ivory Coast is looking like the best bet.
Absolutely, do you have an Instagram?
My Instagram is shameful, I travel a lot and barely post anything... One day when I need to build my personal branding I'll fix that :joy:. Is yours nomad_lifestyle (lucky name)?
mines crazy long haha officialdigitalnomadlifestyle
the only reason I started instagram is so I can make some money during my trips instead of spending so much haha, so I get it
Hi everyone! ๐Ÿ™‚ Iโ€™m planning my trips for next year and Iโ€™m researching some countries in Africa. How good is the internet speed in Morocco and Cape Verde ? and what would be the best cities to stay at ?
for cape verde, tcwsppmggpuvb
Solid 50-30, coworking spaces in Sรฃo Vicente and Praia. Strongly advise Sรฃo Vicente, we will have a very interesting community from mid October there. ๐Ÿ™‚
Thanks :) that's better than I thought
Yes itโ€™s quite solid if you donโ€™t have to do big downloads.
Soon we will have 500-300 at the coworking spaces sponsored by local Telecom ๐Ÿ™‚
October we start in Sรฃo Vicente
January in Tarrafal (Santiago island)

Feel free to reach out for more info
Thanks, Iโ€™m planning to go there in Jan or Feb. I was looking more at Praia since flights are 1 third of the price compared to the other islands. I could consider flying to Praia and then get a boat to Sao Vicente but I need to research more if is worth it the trouble.
If you have a co working space or accommodation there you can PM me the info ๐Ÿ™‚
fquklygvvmryy is the Cape Verde nomad village open yet?
I will launch Tarrafal in January, join us :slightly_smiling_face:
Praia is quite dangerous, Tarrafal is a small paradise in the same island
In Tarrafal we will have a decent coworking space and several small working places in partnership with the hotels.
We are also preparing 50 accommodations for January as we will have around 50-100 nomads here
Mindelo is opening this month, not a village but the most cultural city in Cabo Verde.
Tarrafal (Santiago capital island) and a village, will open in january
estou interessado, tem mais detalhes?
All of them ๐Ÿ™‚ DM

How are remote work conditions in Cap Verde?
mnfdgjkliw Nomadlist shows a monthly living expense of $5500. That sounds like a very rough estimate. ๐Ÿ˜…
It's cheaper than Lisbon, 1000 euros a month should cover everything
Thank you!
Culturally speaking, would you consider Cape Verde part of Africa, Latin America, Caribbean, or even Portuguese? (before I get flamed I know it's geographically part of Africa :wink:)
Portuguese Africa .
Similar to Angola.
Chill culture , beach people that live with very little .
Similar to Asian countries
thanks wmyhjhks ๐Ÿ˜„ from what Iโ€™ve seen, accommodation is around $700-1000/month (on Airbnb), cheaper when you share a place with other people, not sure what about the food and other stuff
and I havenโ€™t updated nomadlist haha, Iโ€™m Thailand now ๐Ÿ˜…
yagxknrdbd oops, sorry to disturb ๐Ÿ˜
hey hey, right now in Mindelo, Cabo Verde :slightly_smiling_face:

1000usd is enough to live well here. nice studios for 450 euros, rooms in guesthouses from 300.
You can eat out for 3 euros, or go wild and spend 15 :smile:

Culture, it depends from island to island. Even though itโ€™s all Africa :slightly_smiling_face:

Mindelo (Sรฃo Vicente) where I am is more European, transportation works, boats leave on time, itโ€™s safe and the culture is a mix between Africa, Brazil (biggest Carnival) and Portuguese. Itโ€™s known as the capital of the culture and you can even work outside with the expensive laptop in a beach bar that nothing will happen.
Itโ€™s super walkable as well.
These apartments for example are 450:
Thank you very much for sharing your insight llzskegesdgqa
Hey U02858XALCT! Sorry I didnโ€™t check in here. Definitely doing 2022 - heading to South Africa now in December and will be in Cape Town in Jan and plan from there!
Yes thereโ€™s also an awesome documentary on that too (wonder if it was the same one?!)
Killer! That might be a bit too close for me I already have a trip planned for December, however I would love to hear more about the adventure, and it looks lik eIโ€™m going to Cote Dโ€™ivoire in January / February so perhaps I could join for a leg of it or something haha - do you have an Instagram?
Oh thatโ€™d be cool!
Yes letโ€™s connect there - you can find me at hejhejjessie ๐Ÿ™‚
Hi yfsytdrmambys , what is the easiest flight route from Portugal to Cabo Verde?
