Mailing to Nairobi

Please help. I am trying to mail a box to Nairobi and USPS says they don't deliver, UPS has a Nairobi listed but they want $370. to ship it. CRAZY. Looking it up under Kenya location USPS, the price was $77.US which is fine, but it is supposed to go to Nairobi,not Kenya. Any suggestions from anyone? USPS was totally not helpful at all with any suggestions on what to do....

Nairobi is in Kenya so it would have to go to Kenya to make it to Nairobi.

I've sent USPS Express Mail packages to Kenya before. Nairobi is a city in Kenya.

Nairobi is the capital of Kenya. USPS often used FedEx to ship packages to countries USPS doesn't ship directly. Usually takes minumum of 6/days. DHL is an alternative and used by many, but will be as expensive as UPS.

USPS will ship a regular envelope as they would anywhere else at whatever the per oz. rate - it can take anywhere from a few days/weeks to arrive.
