Items not to buy

 

Responsible tourism entails refraining from supporting trades or services that do harm to the people or the environment, and travellers to Tanzania should be very aware its importance.

Please avoid purchasing wildlife products such as ivory and skins as the market created by these purchases encourages poaching and terrible injuries to the animals themselves.

Removal of coral, shells from turtles or any other kind of marine animal also causes a tremendous upset to the balance of marine life which is more often than not impossible to correct.

Wood carvings too, should be checked to ensure that the material comes from a renewable, sustainable source.
