Nairobi Shopping

What are the items that I should bring with me because they’re not available (or are too expensive) where I am going?
Although houses can sometimes be rented with a cooking stove and/or refrigerator in place, we advise you to import your hard furnishings because purchasing them locally can be very expensive. As for food products, most items are available through local shopping stores and imported goods are available through Western-style supermarkets.
