If you are in the market for handicrafts, this is the perfect place to wander the stalls for an hour or two and pretty much cover all of your shopping with a large variety of different items from paintings to figurines to what I was really looking for, masks. I found the whole spectrum - the typical mass-produced Masai masks and animal statues as well as more unique and detailed pieces. Two pieces of advice - budget a good amount of time to visit as many stalls as possible because the variety and quality of items really varies. The other advice is you need to barter and barter hard. I have been to markets in Africa so I had a reasonable idea of how much something should cost, and this market was severely marked up even more than those - imagine being asked to pay 100,000RWF for a wooden mask. A final price of 25-30% of what is originally asked will still leave vendors with a profit and they will accept if you make it clear you are not just a clueless foreigner.
