  • One of the great experiences for safari-goers in Kenya is a visit to the Maasai Market. At these open-air markets travelers can find curios, paintings, drawings, clothes and fabrics with East African prints, jewellery and wood-carvings, many hand-made in Kenya by local artisans.

Great products, great vendors, great prices and such intense variety if you don't know what you are looking for you will be overwhelmed. It is the best representation of Kenyan products in one place at affordable prices
