Clarke’s Bookshop

Downtown
Bookstore

At Clarke’s, bibliophiles have permission to browse the carefully-curated space. The shop specializes in rare and out-of-print books relating to the Cape and the African continent, and has a reputation for freedom of thought born from earlier days when so much South African literature was banned and had to be smuggled in. The current owner, Henrietta Dax, travels Southern Africa to stock the store and welcomes special requests.
