xcuse our Appearance We're Working On It!


CapeTown Trader is an American company with significant interests in South Africa. We not only love traveling to this beautiful and diverse country but through our trade with South Africa we have discovered some of the world’s most fascinating people, exciting new artworks, and great cuisines. There are the great textile art we obtain from Alexa Kirsten in Wellington,. These have been snapped up by libraries and parents for the joy each original work epitomizes. And of course biltong and dry boerewors (farmer’s sausage) are one of our biggest sellers,. They originated with the Voortrekker’s, pioneers who dragged ox wagons through the country into the hinterland. Settlers would dry the meat in the sun as they traveled. Today every South Africa is addicted to bitong and dry sausage (droe wors) and so are increasing numbers of Americans. Thank you for visiting our site, we hope that as time develops we become firm friends.

We carry more than 200 specialty items ranging from gourmet nougat to rooibos tea, which is indigenous to South Africa and grown only in the mountains of Clanwilliam. We carry the most popular black tea in South Africa, a beloved brand of chutney, gourmet preserves from organically grown produce, and we also carry a fascinating range of textile art, handmade cards, and… well, why don’t you enter these pages and see for yourself?

          Biltong is a cured meat similar to carpaccio, and far more delicious than

jerky.  The Dutch settlers who migrated to the hinterland and were called Voortrekkers use to hang strips of meat to dry from their oxwagons. Preparation involves applying vinegar to the best cuts of meat, then rubbing it with a mix of herbs, salts and spices. Our biltong and droe wors products are USDA approved. We sell them almost faster than we stock them – so that gives you an idea of how tasty they are.



   Ouma rusks are South African comfort food. Eaten dry or snack dipped into coffee or tea before being eaten, it is similar to a chunkier form of biscotti.  Try the Muesli or Buttermilk Rusks, or buy a range, you’ll find this is your favorite winter snack.
