We got robbed in the Bombollulo area while waiting in the traffic jam. A terrible experience and nobody and bystanders want to help especially if you are a muzungu. Every one in the vicinity saw what happened when they snatched the wife's hand bag from inside the vehicle and ran. Passports money travelers cheques jewelry which had been taken off... More

Bombolulu Workshop is your one-stop local handicraft and cultural centre at Mombasa. The community contributing greatly to this project is the Handicapped of Kenya society that do an amazing job of craft, cuisine and cultural dances that leave you asking for more. Disability is not inability !

Few workers on site and almost no crafts. Apparently a large craft shop burnt to the ground and so there was very little to see. I appreciate how they are helping people.

We have been to Mombasa twice and visited here on both occasions. On our first visit I was shocked how bad the working conditions were considering how good the carvings are that they turn out. We returned the second time a little bit more knowledgeable and chatted to some of the craftsmen as they were working. The workers have their... More

Went to the showroom to purchase some Christmas gifts. They have a wide variety of very well made artifacts, jewellery, carvings and clothing. Take your time to walk through it all before purchasing anything. The workshops are also open to the public and you can see how they make the different items. Easily accessed by matatu (taxi) and tuktuks, but... More

We met lots of the workers and they... More

We are currently working with Bombollulo who are making a range of bags and jewelery for us and so we have just returned from our second visit. This is one of the most worthwhile projects I have visited. It provides a secure and peaceful home and workplace to its unbelievable crafters who both live on the premises and come to... More
