What should I pack when moving to Kenya?

Answer this Question

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

"When moving to Kenya, 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 warm climate. Bring a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen to protect yourself from the sun. Bring a mosquito net and insect repellent to protect yourself from insect-borne illnesses. Bring a first-aid kit with basic medical supplies. Pack a few items of clothing that are appropriate for more formal occasions, such as a dinner or a business meeting. Bring a few books or magazines to help you pass the time. Finally, make sure to bring any necessary documents, such as your passport and visa," commented one expat who made the move to Kenya.
