Kariakoo Market

An authentic and exhausting shopping experience, the Kariakoo Market, which consumes numerous city blocks and is known as the largest market in East Africa, will appeal to all holidaymakers and shoppers and will quell just about every splurging urge. Offering everything from clothing, African drums and stone jewellery to agricultural goods, housewares, and many other items. As busy and exciting as this market is, many foreigners find it too overwhelming and pickpockets and other petty thieves take advantage of this. Shoppers should leave their valuables at home and only take as much money as they want to spend.

Address: Kariakoo
