Located in the Norther neighborhood of Gigiri, this American-style mall (open air, with a central food court) has a variety of shops in a modern setting, surrounded by extensive parking and lavish gardens. I particularly recommend the African art shop called Kalabash, the best option for buying a souvenir from Nairobi. There are a few good options for eating, like... More

Look for African (not just Kenyan) handicrafts - there's awesome souvenirs here. Spend some time browsing first and get a good sense of prices being offered before you make a choice. While bargaining is part of the deal, the market offers a variety of steals

Unless you live near by or have a very specific reason to go to the Village Market, such as the brilliant hairdressers Salon Malibu, why would anyone go to Village Market? It is miles from the centre of town, traffic in Nairobi makes the journey no joke unless you are staying nearby. The shops are nothing special and many of... More

This place is like a mini mall with everything you need...a grocery store, a pharmacy, clothing stores, souvenirs, many restaurnts, a food court, plenty of parking, and pretty good security checks at each entrance.

a great place to spend weekends with family and friends. you can spend a lot of money- in fact its set up that way, but you can avoid it if you want to and enjoy the atmosphere.
