Survivor Gabon will pit 18 contestants against each other in physical as well as social extremes. Survivor Gabon, which was filmed in North Africa, aired yesterday, and to build on the excitement, we thought we'd compile a few regional trends.

The slideshow highlights some African, safari and tribal innovations, although it's unlikely the contestants will actually encountering any of these on Survivor: Gabon - Earth's Last Eden.

Implications - The good news is that you get to experience these African innovations from the comfort of your own home. Browse through images of rare and wild animals, enormous shiny diamonds and jewelry inspired by giraffes. Unlike the Survivor contestants, you don't have to worry about the wild animals!
