A very special place ..Shanga Shangaa is in a coffee plantation and makes a difference by employing people with disabilities to create beautiful art.
What a wonderful place! Nestled in the midst of a coffee plantation, this innovative workshop is the home to a cadre of artists who have various handicaps. The history of its origins is fascinating; the workmanship is superb! The jewelry, textiles and glass-blown objects are available for purchase at the filled gift shop. Luncheon was a special treat of Tanzanian... More
If you are in Arusha, do not miss this pearl! This is truly a wonderful project. Shangaa is employing disabled Maasai that would have very few if any means of survival except of begging the streets of Arusha. I was really moved when I visited the place together with an older Maasai colleague. When visiting the workshop he recognized a... More
I was on misson in Tanzania for a few weeks this summer and as treat we visited Shanga. The work they do is inspiring and brilliant and I also left with a wonderful necklace to remeber it by. After hard work it was nice to relax in their pretty garden. Must visit!
I LOVED the time I spent at Shanga with my group of friends! What a wonderful place full of amazing people. The gift shop is really cute and they have some really nice (and affordable) gifts. Take the time to watch the glass blowing, beading, and weaving. There is a little adjoining restaurant on the grounds surrounded by beautiful trees.... More

My mom, girlfriends and I came here for lunch and some shopping before our safari. The lunch was some of the best food we had in Arusha, and we love the mission of Shanga. Tanzania is making great strides in how they handle people with disabilities. Shanga is a wonderful example and hopefully we will see more places like it.
My visit to Shanga Shangaa was magic - as soon as we arrived a very knowledgeable and friendly guide began to explain the projects, people and activities going on with an intense enthusiasm. The whole tour was heart-warming. Even though I was on a tight budget I couldn't resist the items in the gift shop - beautiful glass work, aluminum... More
A glass of champagne in a relaxed setting, followed by a lovely lunch, what a great way to spend an afternoon. Then when lunch is done there is always the opportunity to have a look around the great little shop which sells unique and lovely gifts
Loved this shop! They have the most beautiful textiles and jewelry and it is all made here at the shop by people with disabilities. I really wish that we had come here first, I would have spent all my souvenir money here. Not only do you get to bring home beautiful items you can feel good about it. We had... More
