We stayed nearby (N1 Hotel) and had a walk around this open air shopping village. Quite a lot of nice stock and the environment is quite cozy and chic. There are some places for a drink and reading too. I bought a CD with African music there at USD20. I didn't bargain the price, let it be a contribution to... More

This is an open air market area near the outdoor curio market, pretty much it is enclosed with a nice courtyard with big trees. The shops here are a bit more upscale and so are the prices. There are some food options here, like the Africa Cafe. Lots of smaller shops selling all kinds of things. The best part, there... More

I went through the outdoor shops and then through the Elephant walk. It was up scale from the out door shops on the other side.bi had bought a mask at the outdoor marker and went to DHL to arrange shipping back to the US. The price was ridiculous , $400 to ship. It was very obvious they wanted to cheat... More

if you are on limited time and a less than limited budget, then this is a great place to do some power souvenir shopping, or just have a wander and a bite to eat or cool drink.

A very touristic place to see loads and loads of local sculptures. But that's it: just to see, cause unless you're an extravagant and exotic high class tourist, it is insane to buy and carry this marble stuffs back home. There are, though, amazing clothes. But the most unpleasant thing is the aggressive and non-stop annoying approach of the local... More

I loved the Elephants Shopping Center. Lots of nice little shops, galleries, a great café and good quality souvenirs – especially compared to all the places on the main street in Victoria Falls. If you’re looking for something a little less touristy, head here to do your shopping.

Pleasant little center close to Victoria Falls. Mostly curious on the higher price end and a really nice lunch venue. Behind the center is a larger "African market" selling plenty of curious and "artifacts.

A small mall with a few shops and a very nice cafe with good well priced drinks and snacks. The benefit of shopping here as opposed to the outdoor curio market 100 metres away is that they have a no hassling policy, unlike the curio market where every store sells the same and every store would like you to see...

Elephant walk is a nice little shopping area. Neat little shops to see and window shop. But, like most shops in Zimbabwe, things are way over priced. Things we saw in South Africa are double to triple the price here. You are not pressured here like you are in some of the craft market stores located behind the Elephant Walk... More

Elephant's Walk was a great area for shopping. There were a lot of craft shops and items that I hadn't seen in other curio shops in the area. There was a nice outdoor cafe to relax for a beer and food. It is not a large area, but you will need a few hours to visit all of the stores!... More
