There are plenty of opportunities to shop in Johannesburg, from European antiques to clothing to wood carvings, so each visitor’s version of the best thing to bring home will differ. Remember that South Africa is a very immigrant-heavy country, so our Forbes Travel Guide editors suggest double-checking to see if what you are buying is truly South African if that’s important to you.
One of the most interesting items to bring home is a photograph with wildlife. Head to one of the many wildlife parks, pet a lion cub or a cheetah and enjoy the memory for a lifetime. Not only will the experience resonate long after the vacation is over, but it will be a constant reminder of the amazing African wildlife.
