Souvenirs from South Sudan
Visitors to the Republic of South Sudan are astonished by the sheer array of wildlife and history that have occurred within its borders. Souvenirs from South Sudan pay homage to these by showcasing natural materials in traditional fashion. Within the markets, you will see carts full of animals carved from ebony wood, tribal weapons, and baskets woven from dried grasses. Leather items, made from the skins of African animals, such as snakes, crocodiles and ostrich, are very attractive and would be welcome gift. Taxidermy is another interesting example of South Sudanese souvenirs, as animals are turned into decor and usable objects, such as an ashtray made from a baby crocodile. For those who prefer to eat animals, a gift of spices, such as fennel, nutmeg and candlenut, would be appreciated. Too many choices? Consider purchasing a water globe, photo book, key chain, T-shirt or refrigerator magnet emblazoned with local logos.
