Best souvenir shop and great sunset bus
Dec 2020 • Couples
We love the items sold in this small local souvenir shop.
We love the fact that the shop closely collaborated with local NGO’s and gives back to the broader community.

I love my refurbished Fjallraven backpack. African style ❤️ so much better than spending money on a new backpack 🎒
This one looks way cooler, we recycle and give back to the Moshi community.

Endless variety of bags available in the shop 😍

This was a wonderful gift shop with good prices. They support several different nonprofit organizations. The shop keepers were helpful and able to explain the different artwork. Keep this place in mind if you are looking for souvenirs!

A Can't Miss Spot in Moshi
Feb 2020 • Couples
Peter and his staff run such a cool little shop. Everything inside seemed to be locally made and Peter was happy to tell us about the artists and organizations that created them.
We also met Bob, a very talented artist, at Mama Africa and came home with one of his original paintings that we are excited to have framed so we can display it.
We loved our shopping experience at Mama Africa because there was no pressure to buy (like we had experienced in many other shops in East Africa).

Great paintings

If you have the opportunity, ask someone to call Peter (the owner of the shop) and get him to talk about the paintings. He will show you cultural aspects you wouldn't suspect and will open your eyes to some unexpected details. The painters are carefully selected all around the country and I found the paintings to be very unique. Truly different to any other giftshop I have visited in the country.
