This is an interesting place set just off the main road to the National Parks and on the outskirts of Arusha. It consists of an excellent art gallery ( actually a private collection and everything is for sale!) a coffee shop next to the gallery which sells great coffee, some wonderful iron statues of animals, a replica slave boat and some great wood carvings formed from the whole trunks of trees. The architecture of the gallery is reminiscent of other famous art galleries in the world-you descend down spiral steps and passages and can't help but be amazed by the works of art displayed all the way up and down. The shops outside are not so remarkable and are geared to the "fly in fly out safari goers" However i would have to say that the tanzanite counter which serves two shops is very fair in their prices and do give us as volunteers a fantastic discount.-it us probably as good a place as any to purchase tanzanite. Overall it is well worth a visit!
