Whether it’s your favorite shampoo or delicious energy bar you love, you should consider bringing them on your trip to Africa (especially if you are new to the continent).
While you can probably find something similar in most stores, it might be a bit off, or not quite do the trick.
If the food doesn’t suit you where you are traveling (it’s okay, it happens) there’s nothing like some familiar snack foods to keep you going.
Same with shampoos and personal items, you don’t want to find out while traveling that a new shampoo causes your hair to flake or you are allergic to a new brand of soap.
Though we recently advised to save some room for souvenirs, your personal care items shouldn’t be one of the things you leave out.
