In Africa, most of the lodges have curio shops – and some of the plusher lodges have expensive gift shops where you could, if you so wished, spend much of your day! African carvings, beadwork and basketry make great souvenirs and gifts. In the higher bracket, superb jewelry, precious stones, paintings, bronzes and furniture are all available – just ask your guides. Most shops now accept credit cards, mostly Visa and Mastercard. In Australia, New Zealand and Argentina, shopping is better in the larger towns.
