price and time for mail delivery East Africa to North America?

Jump to last reply

We were talking with friends about our upcoming (June) trip to Kenya and Tanzania, and they said they would love to get a postcard from the trip. We then realized we know nothing about sending postcards (or mail in general) home (Canada) from Africa.

Have any of you sent postcards to North America from your trips? For us the best place to send postcards from is probably Arusha for - we get there about 7 days in out of the 18 day trip. Any info about how long a postcard would take, what condition it would arrive in, and how much it would cost would be useful. Also, where do you buy postcards, envelopes, stamps, and where do you mail things (post office, mailbox etc.?)

Another thought - from Italy a few years ago letters went quickly and postcards very slowly - it was much better to put the postcard in an envelope and mail it like a letter. Any similar tricks for Kenya or Tanzania?

Thanks!
