Quick question about Kenya..

Hi all. 2 friends of mine are traveling to Kenya in April for some volunteer/missions work. I was curious what are some popular souvenirs that people bring home from Kenya. I'm hoping to put in a request, lol. Thanks, Greg

Ditto on the Maasai man & woman wood carvings.

Also brought back a nice carving of an ele for my desk.

Tons of earrings but I see you're a guy so you may not be interested altho the brightly coloured Maasai bead bracelets look pretty cool on guys and all the Maasai wear them, several in fact.

If not beaded there's some pretty cool copper bracelets too.

Brought my 20 year old nephew back a T-shirt with a Tusker beer label on it and I don't think he's taken it off since! And that was in 2011!!!

Can you still get carved black giraffe statues? My mum had a few of those from her time there. I'm hoping to back and get some of my own as they are so nice

There is a variety of things you could find as souvenirs from Kenya. A great place to shop for this other than the curio shops all over the country, would be at the Maasai markets set up on various days in Nairobi such as;
Wednesday – Capital Center along Mombasa rd

Thursday – The junction Mall along Ngong road

Friday – The Village market along Limuru road

Saturday -The High court parking in the city Center opposite Re-Insurance Plaza

Sunday -Yaya Center along Valley Road in Hurlingham
