The prices are ridiculous- a cheap thin t- shirt for $60 US?!? And the vendors are aggressive. The items are some good some really cheap. Not worth the visit

Wow! If you want any African crafts, come here and negotiate. Sculptures (wood and stone), African fabric, beaded animals, bowls, paintings and so much more.

Many small shops all selling the same stuff more or less. They start out high in price. Just start out about a third or less of what they ask and go from there. Then it won't be expensive.

Set next the main mall, the majority of the vendors are down below. It is good safe friendly marketplace - as usual with such places there is some repetition but that is to the buyers advantage to negotiate a good price
