Shopping in Africa is a multisensory experience interspersed with international brands, major shopping malls and organic markets that sit side by side with street vendors selling African wire art, beads and curios.
In our high-end shopping malls you’ll find international designer fashion brands to local haute couture and in the markets and on the streets you’ll find an eccentric collection of art and souvenirs. Bargaining is part of the exchange.
