What You MUST Do To Be Happy Making The Move To Africa

Normally I talk about the vegan diet and making lifestyle changes. But today I’m talking about something a little different. I’ve been living here in Tanzania for a little over four years. I want to talk about my experience because many people from the African diaspora are coming here to Tanzania, to Gambia, to Ghana, to Nigeria looking to get away from life in Europe, life and in the UK, life in America. Unfortunately some of them are getting disappointed by their experience.

In this video I talk about what has helped me get along here and what in my opinion you MUST do to be happy, and make the move to the continent more positive and satisfying for you.

I really appreciate your video. It rings so true especially with my experience in Ghana. I plan to retire on the continent and definitely try to be as flexible as possible when I come there and just go with the flow. The majority of my experiences has been positive even as an oburuni. LOL.

Hey Jahzara! The Motherland is a wonderful place to retire. So much to be grateful for here. I can’t imagine living back in the states again.
