Owner description: The biggest souvenir store in Zanzibar, Memories of Zanzibar offers the most extensive selection of quality items all under one roof, at reasonable prices. Situated within walking distance of major Stone Town hotels such as Serena, Tembo, Dhow Palace and upcoming Hilton, you can count on a pleasant shopping atmosphere and service with a smile.

We stumbled across Memories of Zanzibar and went in having seen it advertised in a couple of leaflets. The price and quality of the wide range of goods is outstanding. We bought a range of goods at variou prices. We still bought souveneirs from the market traders as well, but as we are not good at haggling we probably got the best price here as well! Even if you don't want to buy here its a good place to compare prices. The staff were very friendly and helpful as well.

This store in Stone Town has everything you are looking for in souvenirs without having to haggle and the prices are great. We did buy some souvenirs from the vendors but realized that the price at Memories was a lot less than what we paid

You can find everything you want or you don't want...It is heaven of shopping. You can buy not only gifts for your friends but also a lot of things for yourself. We visited Memories twice when we were in Zanzibar and bought a lot of things. But I couldn't give them to my friends because my mother liked them too much and took them:)

The best bargains are not always found in markets and laneways. This store is large, clean, air conditioned and well stocked. There are 2-storeys of all things African. The range of goods was fantastic and the prices very reasonable. The staff were very helpful and unobtrusive. We purchased lots of quality African items, ready to take home with wonderful memories of our African trip.
