A South African inspired store
Our aim is to sell high end, quality items sourced with South African traditions and trends in mind. Be it to spoil yourself, a gift to a fellow South African or simply for a special occasion. We sought out items from small businesses all over Canada and South Africa, most of which are hand made. We especially strive to support projects that support work creation and good causes in Africa.
What if you have a specific item you REALLY REALLY want out of South Africa, we can make it happen. Just shoot us an email and we'll see what we can do. Put together an order as a gift and we'll personalize it on your behalf!
We are constantly searching and seeking items to add to our store. If you are a entrepreneur, small business or just someone who makes beautiful things - contact us if you are interested in working with Boabab.
Check out our SHOP for items we have in store!
The Sagole Baobab (also Sagole Big Tree, Muri kunguluwa (i.e. tree that roars), or Muvhuyu wa Makhadzi) is the largest baobab tree in South Africa. It is located in Vendaland, Limpopo Province and has a trunk diameter 10.47 meters, circumference 32.89 meters. The Boabab tree has mesmerized me from the time I formed my first steps. It is truly a remarkable, intimidating tree.
I was raised in the Bushveld region of South Africa and have a strong longing for Africa that will never fade.
We immigrated to Canada in 2017 and have been extremely fortunate to experience and fall in love with another country all together! It only made sense that we share our favorites with our new home and to help fill a void for all the folks who sometimes long for home.
We strive on supporting small businesses in Canada and South Africa and empowering people in need, to fill our store with quality items that was made with absolute love and effort.
