  • Definitely worth a visit! Great glass making demonstration, great shop although expensive. The rickety bridge is exciting & scary and only costs 150 shillings 👍 VERY rough road to it... need a 4x4 really!
  • Definitely a must do for anyone visiting Nairobi. Incredible products and an awesome experience.
  • Wow.. quite interesting how the glass items are made.The staff too are quite courteous
  • Amazing place, Can never get enough from here
  • Beautiful environment right next to a park. We needed a guide and a guard from the Masai Lodge to escort us there. The products made are shipped all over the world and truly show Africa at it's finest. Wonderful art.
