What should I pack when moving to Tanzania?

Answer this Question

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

"When moving to Tanzania, it is important to pack items that will help you adjust to the climate and culture. Pack lightweight, breathable clothing that is appropriate for the hot and humid climate. Bring a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen to protect yourself from the sun. Bring a mosquito net and insect repellent to protect yourself from mosquitoes. Pack comfortable shoes for walking and exploring. Bring a first aid kit with basic medical supplies. Bring a universal adapter for charging electronics. Pack a few books or magazines to help pass the time. Finally, bring a few items that remind you of home to help you adjust to your new environment," remarked another expat who made the move to Tanzania.
