Every visitor who comes to Tanzania will take away with them something special to remind them of their trips to our country, be it a ring fitted with glittering Tanzanite or a carving of giraffe or buffalo on the wind-swept plains. At the Tanzanian Tourist Board, we want to make sure you get the most out of your experience shopping in our country and taking away only the best memories of your trip. What follows is advice and pointers about the most special and unique items our country has to offer, and information about where to shop, what local curios to buy, purchasing gemstone, and items to avoid, as well as useful advice about bargaining and carrying purchases back home.
