For a wonderful selection of arts and crafts, wooden carvings and beadwork, you can't go wrong at the Nairobi Masai Markets. These are held around the city at different venues on different days. It is worth noting that sometimes (though not always) you will buy items from the actual people who make them. You can buy all your souveniers and gifts in one-go but get ready for some serious bargaining.

  • Tuesday: Westgate Shopping Mall in Westlands (the upper car park) (relocated to Kijabe street opposite the Norfolk
