The Souk Karen

The Souk is not only a place to shop, but a place to be. Discover Linda Camm's fine leather and beadwork, admire contemporary African art on display at the Polka Dot Gallery, visit the bookshop that has something for everyone, and finish your creative tour with the home-made treats of Tin Roof Cafe.


Besides its main shopping arteries like the Moi and Kenyatta Avenues, Tom Mboya and Biashara, there are several hidden gems (and go-to places) scattered all across Nairobi, spoiling you with the best of African craftwork. Don't forget to haggle!
