Victoria Falls Women's Curio Market - A Trip Off the Beaten Path

 

Just returned from an incredible trip to Zimbabwe including Safari and Victoria Falls, but one of the biggest highlights was experiencing the Women's Curio Market (located on Adams Standar Road) just a short walk or ride from most of the major hotels in the area.  The women of the market sell hand crafted goods including beautiful jewelry, bowls, utensils, fabrics, and much more.   Nothing felt like a more authentc experience than visiting the market and meeting the women that worked there.  Plus, you will go home with some really beautiful items for your home or gifts for friends and family!  :)

This venture off the typical sites of Victoria Falls  is a must-see!
