Animals

Bazaar Africa takes you on safari with its many and varied handcrafted animals, all different, all crafted on the African continent.

Animals are so much a part of Africa, that they feature in many of the handcrafted items made, and we, at Bazaar Africa, have many to share with you, so please have a browse.

You will find here a range from the ‘big five’, down to the most humble little insect, such as a lizard.

Wherever you travel in Africa, you will always be very close to an animal or insect of some description. It may be a cute little gecko on the wall of your room, a giraffe outside your tent on safari, or simply a domestic chicken pecking around your feet.  Whatever it may be, they are all fascinating, and some maybe preferable in beaded form rather than the real thing!

Look here at the entire range of handcrafted animals, or in the more specific dropdown menus, to find a pet friendly animal to suit your home.

From a small keyring, to a cushion cover, from an elephant to a spider, we hope that there will be something to take your fancy.

We stock some handmade gift boxes – available below, which might fit your purchase, should it be for a special gift.
