I am a curious , vigorous traveller who has lived in many places, tasted much food and experienced various cultures. am currently tugged in the warm embrace of motherhood but my inner restless Dora the explorer self drives me to dive within the depth of Nairobi's local sites and tastes!

What an authentic experience that we couldn't have had without Josephine! It was so much fun exploring the neighborhood and getting our dresses made. This was exactly what I wanted! Josephine is a wonderful, knowledgeable host that you should definitely feel privileged to be with. She is warm, kind and thoughtful. She thinks a lot about her guests and has gone out of her way to create the best, most authentic shopping trip for you. Book now!

This was such a great experience, I got to see a lot of Nairobi, hear interesting stories and shop for beautiful dresses. Josephine is the friendliest and most professional and helpful person, do not miss her great activities!

This was a fun experience, and something I never would have found on my own. Josephine is really sweet, and when I went she guided me to a wholesale shop she has found that offers inexpensive, custom made pieces (think in the $20-30 range for tops, pants, fleece lined sweater, or a 6 yard bolt of fabric), and we had tea while pieces were being made. Some tips I would offer: (A) the $35 price is just for Josephine’s guiding and company, not any pieces, so make sure to bring enough cash or mPesa. I wish I had more! (B) if a piece is more complex or you order a lot and you go in the afternoon, it may be ready next day, but Josephine is wonderful in coordinating a pick up. She was able to collect the piece and drop it at my safari company’s office who got it to me when I was not returning to Nairobi. (C) If you are ordering clothes that sit tighter, I would recommend asking the person sizing you to add some to the measurement. I had tried buying a pair of pants that ended up too small because the fabric does not stretch (D) lastly, if you want a custom style that is not typical for the Ankara fabrics, I would recommend having a reference photo or two to see if they could have it made. I ran into trouble with the pants I mentioned because it did not seem a straight leg (or jogger style) was common for this fabric, and we couldn’t quite get it to fit right in the time we had. Next time! Overall, I had a great time and will be back if I am back in Nairobi looking for fabric/clothes!

Josephine has been a great host. We met at the agreed place and she took me to the market where I could have dresses tailor made that suit me perfectly, and at very reasonable prices! She surely has an eye for beauty! I was overwhelmed by a myriad of colors and patterns and she patiently guided me through everything, providing useful information and helping me make my choices. The tailors were very professional and efficient and I am happy with what I get. Beautiful indeed. When I mentioned that I wanted to get African sandals but it is difficult to get my size since I have very tiny feet compared to typical African ladies, Josephine kindly took me to another market which I could never find on my own, and made sure that I was safe and comfortable, and that I was charged “local prices” rather than “tourist prices”. She insisted that the sandals were adjusted to my size and I am more than happy! We also shared about our life stories. And Josephine has been so inspiring and encouraging! I feel that I have found a friend and sister here in Nairobi. A highly, highly recommended experience.

My girlfriend and I had a great time learning where to buy ankara (kitenge) fabrics in Nairobi. Sandra also took us to her personal tailor who made some clothes and masks for us. My girlfriend was able to get valuable business contacts as she works in fashion. Josephine was knowledgeable about fabrics and I enjoyed chatting with her about Kenyan life.
