Buying Camping Gear in Nairobi

Travelling to Nairobi to go on a 2 week camping Safari in July, we will have a day and a half there before joining our tour.

I am just wondering if we can buy gear like sleep mats, etc. in Nairobi or would it be better to buy these in advance (they are just so awkward in luggage!).

Can anyone recommend any shop in Nairobi?

Yes you can buy camping equipment in Nairobi ,but the selection is limited and quite expensive. You'll undoubtedly find cheaper and better quality items in Ireland. There is a shop in Ya Ya center where you can buy camping goods.

Thanks africanman_840! I think we'll buy them before travelling.
