When going on a shopping trip spree in Kenya, you will find an unimaginable range of locally crafted items, each as beautiful and distinctive as the country where it was crafted. Choose from stunning bead jewelry, brightly-colored fabrics that the Maasai love to wear or the Swahili kanga or kikoy, Akamba handcrafted curios, precious gems, Arabica coffee, the finest in the world and unique African music albums and books. You could also pick out coastal furniture like Lamu beds, coffee tables to chairs and also distinct artwork like wildlife canvas paintings to framed interior design pieces. Travelers on a tight schedule could souvenir shop at the hotel, camp or lodge where they are staying since most accommodations offer some of the mementos, though, at a much higher price tag. But to truly experience the charm of shopping in Nairobi and Mombasa, you must visit the local bazaars with some held every week in different locations. As you wander through the bustling markets, you will find many rare treasures tucked away in the little corners of the tiny duka shops. Enjoy the pride with which every craftsman displays his wares, and above all, revel in the fascinating art of bargaining while vacationing in this buzzing region of Africa. Bargaining is an expected and accepted part of the Kenyan shopping experience where most vendors are likely to quote a higher price. They expect you will haggle and settle at a lesser original asking price, sometimes even half. While you enjoy the feeling of a good deal, do respect the time and effort the craftsman must have put into the fabulous creation in front of you, and if you can afford it, pay slightly higher than the final negotiated price. You could also browse through the various small stores during your city day tours. Some of the stores are supplied the handicrafts by cooperatives, but there are also high-profile malls and shopping complexes where you can pick out ultra-distinct, top-notch quality products. Do remember though that products made from game trophies are illegal in Kenya so if you are offered one of those, they are probably imitations made from plastic and domestic animal produce.
