"Maasai blankets..." Kenya Shopping Tip by TracyG

Kenya Shopping: 36 reviews and 31 photos

There are many traditional Maasai markets throughout Kenya, so there is no problem in a choice of goods.

What to buy: The Maasai blankets are for sale pretty much everywhere, though they are pretty expensive by Kenyan standards. Local wood carvings are also a good bet, and there are quite a few craft shops around specialising in these.

What to pay: Pay around $10 for a blanket and as little or much as you think for the crafts.

Theme: Local Craft

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
