Shopping in Cape Town

Cape Town is a shopper’s dream with a wide range of shopping expeditions to undertake – from luxury boutiques and shopping malls to private shopping tours and markets, the Mother City has it all.

The V & A Waterfront – with over 450 retail outlets selling everything from fashion, homeware and curios, to jewellery and tech – is South Africa’s most popular shopping destination and offers far more than just shopping. Canal Walk and Tyger Valley cater to the Northern Suburbs, with the Southern Suburbs well served by malls like Cavendish Square and Blue Route Mall.

Market shopping is also HUGE in Cape Town with indoor and outdoor markets waiting for you to take advantage of their massive assortment of wares. The best part of market shopping is that many of them are proudly South African or African with Green Market Square arguably the most famous of the ‘fixed’ markets.

If you are looking for something a little bit more exclusive, you can shop like a celebrity with your own private buying experience. Shop for exclusive South African arts, crafts and designer brands with your own personal shopping guide. The tour, offered in luxury transport, can accommodate up to six people and is customised based on the visitor’s needs. Additional assistance can be offered to coordinate freight or to source goods at an extra charge.
