  • Beautiful handmade ebony carvings of Masai and African animals and lot of other items like clothes, slippers, handbags, schoolbags, necklaces and household items to choose from. The shopkeepers are very friendly and welcoming. Ample of parking space too.
  • It's a great place for a selection of craft materials. I recommend walking the whole market before buying anything and just be polite if you are experiencing too much haggling from the vendors to come and look at their merchandise. A simple "no thank you" works. Most of the items were similar in my opinion so it's all about price. However it can be overwhelming to look at all the vendor stalls.
  • You can find very good souvenirs and for a very good price. Many things are handmade. The only problem as tourist it's that everyone want to sell you thing 😊.
  • A very good place with all the cultural things representing Maasai culture mostly and other Tanzania cultural things
  • The place is a local gem. A must see when you're in town. You can try to haggle but remember these are local vendors.
