Think before you buy elephant ivory or leather products. New CITES regulations provide an avenue for non-commercial international trade in manufactured products such as curios from Zimbabwe, but some countries may still confiscate elephant souvenirs upon your return home. Check on the legality of these souvenirs in your home country before you travel. With appropriate permits, hippo teeth could be acceptable substitutes, or try the wide range of farmed ostrich and crocodile products. Warthog tusk and buffalo leather do not require permits.
