South Africa’s Top 5 Shopping Experiences

Are you looking for the best places to shop in South Africa? 

With 2000 shopping malls and plenty more shopping experiences around the country, it’s no surprise you want to spend your money in the rainbow nation. 

A South African shopping experience is likely to be unforgettable. Read on to find the top five shopping experiences you shouldn’t miss during your stay.

 

1. V&A Waterfront, Cape Town

As an all-around shopping experience, the V&A Waterfront is arguably the best on the continent. It sits along the South Atlantic coast, only a short ten-minute drive from the city centre. Twenty-four million people flock to the area every year to see the stores and deals on offer. 

Once you’re done shopping, make your way to The Capital Mirage situated in the uber-trendy De Waterkant area for a luxurious stay.

2. Sandton City, Sandton

Sandton City is one of the most famous shopping centres in Africa. Located 12 km north of Johannesburg, it first opened to the public on the 12th of September, 1973, and has since gone through extensive renovations to become the glamorous retail space that we simply can’t get enough of. The high-end stores and setting make it seem like London’s West End. 

Looking for a 4.5-star business resort with a cosmopolitan lifestyle? Enjoy The Capital On The Park situated in Sandton or the stylish and centrally located The Capital Empire

3. Melrose Arch, Melrose

Melrose is an upmarket neighbourhood, and that’s reflected in the Melrose Arch Mall. Featuring stylish interior and exterior, you can expect to find the outlets of major fashion brands from around the globe along with a mix of independent boutique shops and cafés, so you get the best of both worlds.

Conveniently located in the Melrose district across the road from the Melrose Arch Shopping Centre is The Capital Melrose. Here you can find accommodation as luxurious as your Melrose Arch shopping experience. 

4. Canal Walk, Cape Town

Canal Walk is the largest shopping centre in Cape Town and the third biggest in the country. With 400 stores and 8000 parking spaces, this mall can accommodate hundreds of shoppers from 9 am to 9 pm every day. 

Make sure to get there when the mall opens so you have more than enough time to browse and shop at the multitude of stores available. 

Once you’re done exploring this lavish shopping centre, you can visit a spectacular urban oasis, The Capital 15 on Orange, situated within Cape Town’s richly historical Company Gardens and anchored by Table Mountain.

5. I’langa Mall, Mbombela

I’Langa Mall is known as a premium lifestyle destination in Mbombela. The mall offers over 142 stores in a modern and contemporary setting. 

Ranging from designer boutiques to antique treasure gems, there is no shortage of quality stores here. After a long day of shopping, kick your feet up in a relaxing environment at our Mbombela apartments.
