Elephant's Walk Shopping and Artist Village is a vibrant mix of local artists, retailers, artisan studios, all working within in the cool tropical garden courtyard. The funky Africa Cafe serves delicious light meals and drinks whilst the Nam Tok Restaurant upstairs offer afro asian traditional foods. There is a museum which shows the material and visual culture of the peoples of the region - entry is free. Crocodile Cage diving can be experienced, a visit with out local Nyanaga (witchdoctor) or you can just sit under the palm trees and watch the world go by!

Some V interesting crafts and items for sale, if you don't like negotiating with vendors then this is for you. Prices are quite strong though. Must visit Ishumael Mhike's recycled trash sculptures, his work is brilliant and it's well worth supporting him.

Rich in various shops, artists, etc to spend time. A great garden to walk through. Has live Crocodiles in several cages to see and an tour guide to even put on a show with the crocs in the pond. Exciting!

Great to wander, browse and little pushing selling. This is not black market so priced higher but quality and standards better. Cool, shaded and lots to see. Nice cafe too.

This was a refreshing alternative to the outdoor market located behind the building. This shopping center has small cafes that sells pastries and sandwiches. You can take the food and drinks at the outdoor patio in the middle of the building surrounded by plants. There...More
