Overview

Elephant's Walk Shopping and Artist Village is a vibrant mix of local artists, retailers, artisan studios, all working within in the cool tropical garden courtyard. The funky Africa Cafe serves delicious light meals and drinks whilst the Nam Tok Restaurant upstairs offer afro asian traditional foods. There is a museum which shows the material and visual culture of the peoples of the region - entry is free. Crocodile Cage diving can be experienced, a visit with out local Nyanaga (witchdoctor) or you can just sit under the palm trees and watch the world go by!

A very nicely designed shopping experience with great pieces of art displayed by local artists. The Elephant's Walk has many small shops and a great restaurant to get lunch or a coffee after shopping. There is also a crocodile enclosure and lovely gardens

A relaxed atmosphere to look at local crafts as compared to the street vendors. The merchandise is of high quality and the shop keepers friendly.
