It has many varieties of gifts available. The location is at the roadside making it easy to access. The prices are quite friendly and gd customer care.

There is an on-site artist, Peter, who does great work. The vendors can be a little pushy or should I say pull-y because they are all trying to get you into their stalls. Great place for last minute shopping before you leave.

I think the craft village is overrated . These same things were way cheaper in the Kampala craft village . And the difference is huge . I wasn’t impressed . Didn’t buy anything there .

This is a sweet friendly place and all the stall holders were helpful and welcoming. There were so many goodies on show, it was somewhat overwhelming!

Anything sold in these crafts villages are fine for taking out of Uganda. But do beware if someone wants to see you real ivory! Most of the ivory-type stuff here is made of cow bone.
