Local craft and local beer: "Drink of Champions" Kenya Shopping Tip by kcochran111

Kenya Shopping: 36 reviews and 31 photos

by kcochran111

All along Kenyan roads are small locally operated shops full of beautiful wood craft. Africans are used to bartering, so offer anything you have to trade: Kenyan money, American dollars, even the T-shirt off your back.

Make sure to relax after shopping with a cold Tusker. It's Kenya's #1 beer (and my #1 favorite)!

What to buy: Stock up on these gorgeous carvings as souvenirs and gifts. Just be sure that they'll fit in the overhead bin for the flight home!

What to pay: Anywhere from an old pair of Nikes to $100.
