#RainbowFriday: the South African expat’s Friday shopping feature #23

September 9, 2016

Welcome to another edition of your favourite expat shopping feature. This week we’re venturing around Australia again – before we ship off again to other destinations on the world map.

Shop of the week: Springbok Delights

Springbok Delights was founded in 2000 by Reon and Lyndie Wilsenach who’d been living in the country for three years at the time. It didn’t take long after immigration to realise that there was a hunger for a taste of home among South African expats. They opened a butchery at first but soon expanded to stock most South African favourites. Word soon spread about the fantastic saffa products available at Springbok Delights – and the shop became a sensation amongst expats and ozzies alike. In addition to their own shop, they also sell products at over 80 other stores in Sydney and surrounds.
