What should I pack when moving to Nairobi?

Answer this Question

We asked people living in Nairobi to list three things they wish they had brought and three they wish they had left behind. They responded...

"When moving to Nairobi, it is important to pack items that will help you adjust to the climate and culture. Bring clothing that is lightweight and breathable, such as cotton and linen, as well as a few warmer items for the cooler evenings. Sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat are also essential for protection from the sun. Additionally, it is important to bring any necessary medications, as well as a first aid kit. To help you adjust to the culture, bring items that remind you of home, such as photos, books, and music. Finally, make sure to bring a valid passport and any other necessary documents," explained one expat living in Nairobi, Kenya.
