We always love returning to this excellent shop, usually just before returning home. We never leave empty handed. Wonderful selection of African souvenirs. Amazing tribal face masks from West Africa, etc, etc. Give yourself plenty of time for browsing.

Visited on an Art Walk evening, although often visit when in Hermanus. Staff are helpful and very engaging. Their stock is of high quality as is their art work - and reasonably priced. Ask the staff to direct you to the other Lembu galleries which are also well worth a visit

Visiting all the other flea markets for African curios, art and jewellery, this store for far better quality goods. Born and bred myself in Cape Town, I would strongly recommend for the international tourist looking for local items that will last, in both taste and fashion. Easy to find and right next to Hemmingway's book store that's also a good... More

Beautiful African art and crafts. Some desired pieces were a bit pricey for me, but there are also several reasonably priced ones. Bought gorgeous earrings. The lady there is so warm and friendly. Lovely experience!
