“Take a piece of Africa home with you”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

Steven and Juliette have collected a huge array of antique and contemporary African artifacts, ranging from purely decorative to functional pieces that you will use every day when you return from your visit to Red Rock Tribal. They know the artists who have woven the baskets, who have recycled chip bags to create colorful and sturdy place mats, and who have re-used metal roofing material to fabricate subtle and intricate metal platters so beautiful that you will hang them on the wall rather than use them to carry materials . Ask a question about any item in Red Rock Tribal and you will be given a history of where the item was made, how it is intended to be used, and a sense of the people whose culture is reflected in the work. All of the items in the shop are beautifully displayed, reasonably priced. Whether you are interested in making a major purchase or selecting a small souvenir of Africa, Steven and Juliette are generous with their time and attention, providing great information about the Cape Point area and welcoming you to Red Rock Tribal and the Cape Farmhouse.

“it was a nice place, beautiful region, nice people there, we feel good when we stay there.”
Reviewed 13 February 2011

On our holiday in south africa, we stay wioth five persons for two weeks in scarborough, nice place near capetown, on the west coast of south africa. Every day we made trips in the region, sometimes by walking, sometimes with the car, there are so many beautiful landscape situations, nice small villages and a wonderful wild coast on both sides of cape of the good hope. Often we walked in the morning into the mountains, there are many small ways to go, at the end of the way, on top of the hills, you will get wonderful views over the region and the sea. The cape farmhouse was not far away from our home in scarborough, it was possible to walk there or going there by car. It is a good stop before you go to an roundtrip in the national parc "cape of the good hope", you can enjoy by a good restaurant for breakfast and lunch and important, you can enjoy a visiting in the beautiful shop for african arts " farm house shop" . There you can find so beautiful african arts from all over africa, that you must see it. The only problem for us was the transport of the gifts with the airplane back to germany.

“Amazing Arty African Art”
Reviewed 21 January 2011

This was indeed a terrific find in the southern Cape,on the way to Cape Point set in a beautiful garden. Scarborough and surroundings was our last stop in SA after a month of traveling around. We stayed in the self catering cottage Crystals and Juliette and Steven invited our family over to the store. What an amazing place, the kids loved all the insects made out of the oiltins, the girls picked the little boxes made out of coca cola cans, Menno was extremely happy with his formula 1 racecar ( He would have liked one of the airplanes but that was just to bulky to take back to Canada, Eric and I went home with a very creative water buffelo. We have travelled a couple of times in SA and I can honestly say that at RED ROCK TRIBAL you can genuinly find AMZING ARTY AFRICAN ART to take home.

“It is worth a trip from West Virginia”
Reviewed 14 November 2010

We just spent 3 weeks exploring South Africa, and had a fabulous time. Our favorite shopping experience by far was our discovery of Red Rock Tribal. This is a small store packing an enormous selection of diverse merchandise. Outsider art (including some fabulous yard art-check the wheelbarrows), jewelry, authentic tribal art, home decor and just funky stuff- the longer you visit the more you see. What it all has in common is the impeccable taste with which it was selected. Our visit was greatly enhanced by the store owner, the lovely Juliette, whose knowledge, grace and enthusiasm made us want to stay just to continue to visit. Need I mention that the pricing is imminently fair? Were it not for the difficulty of shipping it home, we might still be there loading up! Louise and Lake Polan
