Category: Books/Travel and Adventure/Traveler Guidebooks/Africa

From vibrant, beautiful Cape Town to the flower-bedecked Namaqualand plains, from history-filled Johannesburg to the wildlife-dotted lands of Kruger National Park, this guide covers all the best-known sights of South Africa, and lesser-known ones as well. South Africa's rich cultural, historical, and contemporary highlights are featured prominently, such as treasure wrecks off its wave-thrashed shores, glorious seafood, and the "big five" animals that every safari-goer hopes to see. Experiential sidebars abound, such as how to consult a sangoma (a practitioner of traditional medicine) or help build houses in Namaqualand. The book guides visitors on interesting excursions including a drive through winelands, a "history walk to freedom" in Cape Town, and a walk in the Bush.

Elephants symbolize steadfastness and wisdom—a pair of curved tusks even frames South Africa's coat of arms. Popular lore says that elephants never forget, and they often recognize humans and other elephants even after decades, making this handcrafted sculpture a touching gift for a loved one who is far away.

Shona Giraffe Sculpture
(Based on 27 reviews)
Category: Home & Garden/Home Décor/Sculptures & Vases

Shona is a 20th-century name given to a number of related ethnic groups in Zimbabwe. They speak similar dialects of a standardized Shona language, and many trace their ancestry back to the 12th-century capital city of Great Zimbabwe, whose ruins are now a UNESCO World Heritage site. Today’s Shona stone carvers draw inspiration from those ancient builders and speak of releasing the spirit trapped in stone as they carve and polish with hand tools. Each handmade sculpture is unique, as is the raw, hand-quarried soapstone it emerged from; please accept variations.
