So much better than I expected. Not your average tourist trap. Highly recommended for interesting and whacky gifts you probably wont find anywhere else

Really great shop for interesting gifts, including ones for yourself! There’s a wonderful range to browse, with everything well displayed. Excellent, friendly service too. I recommend a visit if you are in Cape Town.

I always visit Baraka when it’s time to fly back to England to visit family and friends for Christmas. I find presents there that I never see anywhere else in Cape Town. So now my Christmas shopping is done! Thanks Baraka!

Visited Cape Town and stumbled across this great gift store. The team are friendly and very helpful and designs are original, trendy and are ‘must haves’. Prices are very reasonable too. Would highly recommend
