It's a small market with shopping stalls right before the main entrance of Victoria Falls. This market can offer the same handcrafts like Curio Market, but in smaller scale. The stalls are inside a rectangular African cottage.

Handcrafted items can be bought in the streets by street sellers. The street sellers sponges on the markets, and the police try to chase them away. But they are parasitic and won't give up.

What to buy: You can buy masks handcrafted from wood or animal bones. Batik Paintings and wall hangings, tribal African jewelry like necklase, bracelets and pendants. And of course "Victoria Falls this and that" ;-)

What to pay: The traders pay a rent to have their stall right outside the main entrance to the falls. And prices will be higher here. The choice is yours if you want the cheapest price in the street or want a safe trade in the market. Remember to bargain, and the price will be cheap anyway.

Directions: Right before the main entrance of Victoria Falls.
Theme: Local Craft
