Taking gifts to South Africa?

Jump to last reply

After an initial flurry of researching, booking, etc over 18 months ago, there came a hiatus when there was nothing to do but wait. But now our Sept. trip to Timbavati, Sabi Sands and Phinda is about 3 months away, and I'm starting to gear up again & get the last minute details ironed out. These boards have been so helpful throughout.

My original plan was to go to Tanzania; in reading about that, mention was often made about taking small gifts for the local people -- school supplies, Obama pins etc. Is this something people do when visiting the above mentioned regions? If so, what has been found popular?
