Kenya & Tanzania

I’m fortunate to be going on a “safari” to Kenya and Tanzania. If my
previous travel experience is any guide, I’ll be taken to a gift
shop and be offered the bargain of a lifetime…jewels fit for a king
for a mere pittance… I would like to take advantage of this once
in a lifetime trip…my budget for ‘stuff’ is about $1000 I’m a
senior citizen, but a student in ECU’s Metal Design degree program.
Any advice offline would be appreciated even if it includes “…just
keep your money and bring it home with you.”

Thanks in advance, Jay
