What to bring? What to bring?

I will be arriving in Nairobi in a couple of weeks and I always bring too much "stuff" wherever I go. I have 3 days in Nairobi then a week on safari, then another week at a resort in Mombassa before returning to Nairobi for a couple of days. Suggestions please of what would be essential for the safari.....I can't live without my laptop and iPad but I am a bit reluctant to haul them around. Advice on this topic would also be appreciated.

travljunkie51, depending on what trip you are taking, most places have electricity even if it is a few hours with generator (safari), Nairobi and coast have main electricity save for a few remote places on generator. Camps are well organised and even the basic ones will have sockets or a central place where people can charge their phones, etc. To be on a safe side bring the adaptor - in Kenya we have three pin English type sockets, universal adaptors which have this are the best. If you are going on a trip where you know you will not have access to any or limited electricity, bring the car charger.

just as an aside.. don't forget your smile and sense of humor for when things don't go exactly as planned.
