Delivery services in Cape Town

Get groceries, frozen meals, fresh fish and even dog food delivered during lockdown

Since the COVID-19 lockdown began, many businesses in Cape Town have had to adapt their services to include a delivery option for essential products. We’re allowed out during the lockdown to pick up groceries and other essentials, but if you have the option of delivery - that’s even better. Stay home to save lives, and get all the supplies you need to thrive during lockdown.
