You are looking for some nice souvenirs for friends, family or yourself? The Baraka shop offers various gifts to bring back home all made with lots of love and of course: produced in South Africa.
The Baraka gift shop should even earn an extra star for the lovely people working at the store. So don't hesitate, give the shop a visit & you will see, you won't regret!

First off, the owners Balti and Gavin are lovely people that are a joy to talk with. The shop is filled with items as fun and colorful as the owners. All the items feel like a unique treasure with a fun backstory. We were traveling during the holiday season and bought gifts for our entire family.

I dont write reviews, but felt I had to do one for this lovely shop. They are super friendly and there is a very nice possitive energy in their shop. Also they have a really well curated shop with mostly local handmade items. They also have a fun quirky side. They have been around since 2007 and have become a Cape Town institution!
well worth a visit.

I was looking for something that I was sure did not exist and would have to be tailor made for our needs. I almost gave up, but then looked online and at Baraka I found EXACTLY what I needed and not only that, they also went out of their way on a Sunday afternoon to do an engraving on the product! With that done, It was even more exactly what I needed! So I am blown away by the actual product and the service. WOW! Thank you to the Baraka team! Good to know there is such good businesses around still today! 5 star!

As always, Baraka offered an adventure, both uplifting and exciting. - we could have spent hours there!! So much to see, read and experience - old, new, vintage, historical, inspiring and creative art of all mediums, styles and shapes. A vast array of decor will take your breath away. Truly remarkable! A visit to Cape Town will be incomplete if you do not pay Baraka a visit. - Thank you for those vintage posters.... they are framed and will go up Steytlerville Guesthouse-bar shortly. X
