Connect Coffee Roasters or Pallet Cafe. Otherwise, Beer District
nice! thankyou tlwwdoqpcnsvi
do you know where i can meet other nomads in Nairobi? seems like fb group is just for housing and not much dinner event etc.
They have a terrible rep on this Slack, but the InterNations newcomers event was super useful
Donโ€™t do the premium version
But if you sign up for the trial, you can join a bunch of the community events, great way to meet nomads / expats etc.
otherwise, check out events in Kilimani and Westlands. Nairobi Street Kitchen, The Alchemist all attract an international/local mixed crowd, and great for meeting people.
For events:

Ill be spending a full month (maybe more) either October or November in Tunis. Let me know if you decide to go as well! zpaxse and if you get any intel from others!

I'll be doing a 7-day roadtrip in Namibia with some friends, coming from Cape Town, in Nov. Def keeping an eye for this thread ๐Ÿ‘€ as I'm also a bit lost in terms of car rental or itinerary.

Making your way up, the best seems to be to be to do interior to Windhoek and then make your way back down along the coast starting with Swakopmund, thoughts?
Iโ€™m going there with my gf around that time and Iโ€™m looking to stay in Neighbourgood, looks cool and you can get a private room for around 600 eur. First time staying there, but seems reasonable as it includes gym, coworking and access to common areas, a cafe and a big, well equipped kitchen

Will share my experience with the group!
Hola! Your quick top 3 African countries or cities? ๐Ÿ˜Š (for working from there for at least 3-4 weeks) Looking to add some more to my list
Hey Juan! Iโ€™m still planning my trip, but i think if you plan to drive from CPT to Namibia iโ€™d suggest something in this order if you have plans to visit Etosha:

1. Fish River Canyon
2. Sossusvlei
3. Swakopmund
4. Etosha National Park
5. Windhoek
6. Quiver Tree Forest
7. Capetown

Although, I think is too many attractions to do in 7 days trip and some of them are far away from each other. So you might need to pick what you like between the main attractions.

Like I said, i havenโ€™t been there yetโ€ฆ so i might change my suggestion after my trip ๐Ÿ˜„
Amazing, thanks for the great suggestion Filipe ๐Ÿ”ฅ I will probably trim it as you mention, but thatโ€™s already a great start!

Hey guys! I have plans to go to Mauritius in sep-oct. Does anyone have recommendations on where to stay? Also, I heard thereโ€™s no way to move between places without a car, is that true?

Hi Nomads, What is the official website of Kenyaโ€™n Government where we can apply online for visa?
I googled it and there are too many options, not sure which one is legit
bengen343 1mo
Had that exact same experience. Here you go
rene 1mo| domains are from the kenyan government, usually .com domains etc are not legit
Thanks ๐Ÿ™Œ

Seems like that ask didn't shake out too much despite all our interest. What are y'all getting up to in Nairobi? I'm spending a couple weeks in town on either side of a safari so I haven't much scoped out things to do in the city since it wasn't my main attraction for this stop.
how is Lagos for digital nomads?
tons of groups! Shoot me your whatsapp number in DM and i can tell the admins to add you
scene is pretty vibrant in NBO

Ah that's a bummer, I would have totally been down for that. That was one of my few free nights (working U.S. hours). But, I only check this Slack on occasional mornings.

Hi everyone!
Did anyone get vaccinated before entering Africa? Can you describe what kind of vaccine you had to get and which papers you were asked in airport? How long before your arrival you started vaccination?
rene 1mo
Usually yellow fever. I have that little yellow booklet that you get in most EU countries
rene 1mo
Last time I got checked for covid vaccines was in Kenya in December โ€™22
rene 1mo
Most other vaccines are recommended (Hep A/B, typhus etc) but not required or checked
It also depends on the country youโ€™re travelling to (obligatory Africa is not a country)
jenruvolo 1mo
I got the Yellow Fever vaccination. It was required for Kenya.
beyers 1mo
Hi, I am in Mauritius now. First time visitor so I'm figuring it out as I go.
beyers 1mo
Buses seem to run fairly frequently (every 30 ~ 40min), are inexpensive and go almost anywhere. I haven't ridden one yet but plan to soon.
If you google for "mauritius-buses" then you'll find a useful website for determining bus routes.
beyers 1mo
Most of the streets/roads are narrow and don't have sidewalks or cycling lanes, so not great for cyclists. While the main roads are busy you can take the side-streets which usually have little to no traffic. Much of the countryside is made up of conveniently rectangular plots for agriculture, so you can usually take a detour to a destination with no traffic.
beyers 1mo
Regarding accommodation, I opted for an AirBnB. While not the cheapest option, I did get a friendly host and probably more space that what would have been found in a hotel room.
eltizz 1mo
Iโ€™m planning to go to Tanzania and South Africa. esrioogkrsh do you know any website for obligatory vaccines? I was trying to research but they say all vaccines are only recommended
rene 1mo
I got asked about yellow fever Tanzania recently
rene 1mo
Donโ€™t think so in South Africa. But the general rule seems to be that if you come from a place that has YF generally, youโ€™ll be asked
eltizz 1mo
Got it. Do they care if vaccine was done in EU? Or Asia is fine too?
rene 1mo
Donโ€™t think they care. They barely looked at it ๐Ÿ˜…
rene 1mo
As long as you have some piece of paper
rene 1mo
They didnโ€™t accept the photo on my phone, they actually wanted me to get the paper out of my bag
rene 1mo
Which is the only reason I remember zanzibar airport specifically ๐Ÿ˜„
eltizz 1mo
Gotcha, thank you very much โค๏ธ

Thanks a lot U04M6ME7SHF! It is reassuring that they have buses! How did you go from the airport to your airbnb? Also, is there any neighborhood that you recommend?
beyers 29d
My AirBnB host was kind enough to give me a lift, for a fee. There are lots of airport shuttles available, I would recommend pre-booking one.
beyers 29d
Other stuff that is useful to do beforehand is filling out your entry documents
beyers 29d
And pre-book an emtel tourist sim card that you just pick up at Gate 5
beyers 29d
As for neighbourhoods I haven't been everywhere, but:
Grand Baie has the best nightclubs. (I stay here)
Port Louie has the best infrastructure.
Tamarin is the most beautiful. (probably, haven't been there yet myself)
Awesome man! Thanks a lot!

Hey all, any experiences with staying in Tunisia? How is it safety wise for a woman?
hi i always stay one or two months a year in tunisia and i like it so far. ive met couple of women during nightlife and they were enjoying their stay
lporat 5d
thanks for the answer! what sites do you use to book accommodations? how is public transportation?
i have a house and a car here.
but i know friends who use bolt, its like uber. its very cheap. 10km costs around 5$.
bus and metro are much cheaper than that
rene 3d
Iโ€™ve only been in Tunis once. Canโ€™t speak for women obviously, but I felt pretty safe. Walked around a lot in Carthage too. People were really friendly ๐Ÿ™‚

How was Tanzania??
qnqngyzh where are you visiting in Nam? I spent 4 months there last winter and a few friends are going back november - feb this year.

I created a whatsapp group but wonโ€™t let me share the link hereโ€ฆ
whatdo 1d
I don't have a location picked yet. Also I saw some interesting and frightening flood vids from last December. Is it really that bad in rain season?? Feb sounds more sensible haha
It can be! we had a river through our back yard and flooded swimming poolโ€ฆ! it was a combination of house being poorly maintained so water didnโ€™t flow where it should, and weather being very dry previously so water just runs off. It hardly ever rains, but when it does - itโ€™s 3 hours of craziness. But it is very unlikely to effect you.

โ€˜rain seasonโ€™ just means one or two days a month.

Jan-March is very quiet but April begins to increase and everything is more green.
