Malindi in detail


There are numerous souvenir shops and a large curio market along Uhuru Rd (next to Uluru Park) and Mama Ngina Rd near the Old Town – bargain hard and you can pick up some real treasures, from bao (African board game) sets to silver Lamu jewellery. Avoid buying shells, to avoid discourage plundering from the national park, and carvings made of endangered hardwoods.
