Mama Africa is the best gift shop in Moshi for sure! The staff a super friendly and give good, honest prices. Peter and his Mum, the owners are an amazing team and make you feel so welcome. There are some really cool things in this shop that you can’t find elsewhere in town and I really feel like a friend not just a customer!

Having been fortunate enough to travel to many parts of the world, I've been to my fair share of souvenir and gift shops; none come close to the genuinely warm feel and good vibes of Mama Africa!
Peter is truly a gem of a person, and him and his team make your experience more than just a grab-and-go. In partnering with several local NGO's, Mama Africa mandates to create a social impact by sourcing products that give back to the community. Further, if there is a specific product, design or painting a customer wants made or replicated, Peter will go above-and-beyond to do what he can.
Whenever I find myself back in Moshi and strolling through the winding streets, amidst all the hustle and bustle is Mama Africa. Peter and his mother form a special duo that make you feel comfortable while you browse, treat yourself, and/or look for the perfect gift. I can meet an artist that just spent hours painting a lifelike scene of the Big 5, try on earrings and bracelets of all different colours, pick out vibrant Kitenge fabrics, hear the story behind a Tinga Tinga painting, or just sit and watch the 'pole pole' pace of Moshi unfold - all within this one magical shop.
