Lovely stores situated on the wharf in Cape Town. Nice restaurants and the ferry for Robben Island departs from here. Lots of places to chose gifts for those at home.

You might try Haut Bay at the Wharf at the diamond store. I do recall seeing some jewelry made with elephant hair there. It is not far from Seapoint on the South Atlantic.
