Shopping in SA & Vic Falls

I'm heading to SA in a week & wondering what are good buys in Capetown & Vic Falls. I'm looking for safari clothes (is that too kitch?) perhaps in Capetown & I've heard Vic Falls has good shopping but I don't know exactly what. I don't suppose diamonds are reasonably priced?

For safari Clothes; in Cape Town you have the 'Cape Union Mart' which has two shops in the Waterfront complex, or for better quality: 'The African Nature Company' whose clothe are in various shops, but you can contact them on telephone (from South Africa) 021 762 4542.
FORGET DIAMONDS! - especially if offered on the streets, they will be fake. Cape Town has numerous places selling diamonds, but I wouldn't bother if I were you.
At Vic Falls, there is an area called the Elephant Walk, easily found, which has numerous stalls selling African Art etc, and a collection of shops selling the more up-market artifacts. With the Zim dollar, they are all comparitively cheap.
