Rainbow Friday: the SA expat’s shopping feature #4

February 26, 2016

It’s Friday people! That means it’s almost weekend. It also means your Rainbow Friday feature is here. Today we travel from NZ to Canada for a stop at a fantastic safa shop called Serengeti Trading. Have a read and remember to support this shop if you happen to find yourself on Canadian shores.

If you have any suggestions for shops in your area, remember to send those through to: info@finglobal.com.

Shop of the Week – Serengeti Trading, Canada

Canada is undoubtedly one of the favourite immigration destinations for South Africans. But, of course, it is also one of the furthest. The place is different, the weather is worlds apart, and the mix of English and French accents often makes you feel even more foreign than you already are. But luckily you have a South African shop to quench your thirst for homegrown flavours.

Not only does Serengeti Trading offer you shops scattered across Canada, but you can also shop online for all your favourite South African products.

Serengeti trading stocks a range of proudly South African foodstuffs and groceries.

The family business offers delectable South African cuisine as well as top-class meats and imports.
