Our vision is to afford you an extraordinary shopping experience at very affordable prices. Baraka's loyal customers refer to the shop as a “treasure trove” and “the little shop with the big heart”. But you have to experience it for yourself!

Nice shop in the waterkant area. In a nice area like a mall next to another nice store Africa Nova. This store has a nice selection. Better quality than most. Shops in this area are all very nice and well worth a visit.

This shop is a one of a kind. Shopped already a couple of times and I am always happy. You get treated always very special and you leave the shop with a big smile. Great variety. Definitely shopping soon again for friend's birthday presents.
