This place was a gem, saw the reviews and it lured me in. It did not disappoint, a ton of cool souvenirs and fun things to bring home. Most purchases have good causes associated with them. Actually met Peter and he was very cool. Pro tip: watch out for flycatchers, these are guys who will tell you where to go, but may mislead you. Just follow Google maps.

If you're in Moshi, and looking for something curated, beautiful, ethical, and unique to bring home, you must stop by Mama Africa Gift Shop. I stumbled upon this store late one night, and the owner stayed open late for my friend and I to browse. He was extremely kind, him and his friends even giving us a ride to our next stop as it was very dark. My friend and I were only there a week and so he provided excellent tips on helping us navigate the area and get the most of our trip. It's a store of good people helping good people as their items come from good causes and local artists. It's worth a stop by even to catch a glance of all the beautiful local artwork and talent. was so impressed by the collection, I stopped by multiple times on my trip. So glad I found this store! and would highly recommend if you're in town.

Mama Africa is an amazing local shop supporting local charities! It is also located conveniently next to my favorite cafe in town coffee union. It’s a great place to pick up gifts and you can feel good knowing that your purchase went back to a great cause!!! On top of that, the owner is great and super helpful. I would definitely recommend stopping in and supporting a local business :)
