Power Converter for Kenya & Tanzania

I remember reading a thread that contained information on specific equipment needed in Kenya and Tanzania to convert power (so I can re-charge my digital camera and camcorder) but I can't seem to find it. I did a couple of searches and came across some general information, but didn't find what I am looking for.

I'm looking for a specific brand and model number - and I'd love a web site link as well. Any help at all would be great!

Thanks! We leave 2 months from yesterday

There's no need for a converter if you have dual voltage appliances. Almost all digital camera/camcorder chargers are. Look and see if it says something like 110~220v on it. If so, then your appliance is dual voltage, and you'll only need a plug adapter, specifically the 3 prong UK type for Kenya and I believe Tanzania is the same (someone correct me if I'm wrong about Tz). It looks like this:

I purchased mine at a local travel store. You can also buy a kit of 5 or 6 different plug adapters for about $10. If you travel enough, you'll eventually use them all
