Gold, diamonds, and ostrich eggs are the three most popular tourist souvenirs in South Africa. According to statistics released by South African Tourism, three of every four tourist purchases the "King of Eggs" as a souvenir. Ostrich eggshells are tough. Therefore, they can be carved, painted, or made into lampshades, and they can be seen in one shape or another in almost every store. The South African Ostrich Egg is a canvas depicting the Big Five game (lion, buffalo, elephant, leopard, and rhinoceros) galloping across the African grasslands. The egg itself is colorful and exquisite and rests on a bracket in the shape of an elephant's tusk.
