Shopping in Arusha is a wonderful cultural experience, starting at the Maasai-market, and weaving through small stalls where local Tanzanians offer arts and crafts, scarves and hand-bags. Part of the fun is in bartering with the local vendor until both parties are happy with the price.
The Cultural Heritage Centre is one of the most comprehensive curio shops, boasting genuine antiques and African artwork, as well as an outstanding selection of gemstones, including the legendary Tanzanite and Tsavorite.
For those passionate about true community upliftment, then Shanga is the place. A heart- warming project, dedicated to empowering the disabled community, Shanga produces unique hand-made products from recycled materials.
Legendary Lodge's own boutique offers a full range of branded clothing and bags, as well as a range of Africology products.

Coffee Tours (additional charge)
Not forgetting the beginnings of this century-old estate, Legendary Lodge is surrounded by working coffee plantations. Guests can spend a morning following a coffee bean from tree to cup, from the agriculture, to picking and roasting, to the making of that delicious blend many of us enjoy at home, as Tanzanian coffee is exported far and wide.
Coffee tours take place on Legendary Lodge's neighbouring farm, Kimemo.
