Maasai Market

In the centre of town, you’ll find the Maasai Market. It’s pretty touristy, but it’s still one of my favourite things to do in Ausha and you’ll find a great array of souvenirs on offer, such as paintings, clothing, jewellery and furniture – there’s a lot to spend your money on. beautiful, handmade crafts, head over to the Maasai Women Fair Trade Centre on Simeon Road.

Local Markets

This is one of my favourite things to do in Arusha and I always say that the best way to experience any African city is by visiting the local market. In Arusha, there’s the Central Market (Soko Kuu) and the Kilombero Market where you can buy anything and everything from wood carvings, to food, jewellery, animals and household items. Just always keep your wits about you as pickpockets are common in crowded places like markets.
