    Don't forget a waterproof jacket!

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: Rucksack or holdall. If you plan to travel more independantly then a rucksack is probably better.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: A waterproof jacket is invaluable, as are a set of good clothes and shoes for nights on the town.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Insect repellant and anti-malarials are a MUST, as well as a basic first aid kit. If you plan to trek far off the beaten path then an emergency kit - containing syringes, needles etc. may be something to consider.

    Photo Equipment: In the larger cities there is no problem at all getting film, and it is pretty well priced as well, but always take more film than you think you will need wherever you are.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: It is always a good idea to take a mosquito net, particulalry if you are planning on sleeping outdoors.

    Miscellaneous: A water bottle is essential, particularly if doing any longer hikes, if not then a bought bottle of water will do the trick.

    Luggage and bags: We were on a major trip so had all sorts of luggage! You could generally get what you needed in the shops of the larger towns in Kenya. Photo of some roadside scenery on the Nairobi to Nakuru drive.
