The extraordinary wealth of flora species in South Africa serves as the compelling inspiration fueling our unwavering passion here at Afro Indigenous.

Our Customers

Thank you to all our customers who have supported us through the last few years and a warm welcome to all new ones.  We believe it is important to form a strong communication bond with our customers. Our service extends beyond the “point of sale” and we are available to offer tips regarding germination and treatment of seeds, storage of seeds and logistics of seed.  We place large value on our customers and go to great lengths to meet all requests. No matter how large or small, all requests,  are considered and fulfilled where possible. What we cannot supply we do our best to source.

Countries we are currently supplying:

  • Netherlands
  • U.S.A
  • Germany
  • Japan
  • India
  • Pakistan
  • China
  • South Korea


Our remarkable journey thus far would not have been possible without the invaluable support and active participation of our esteemed rural community. Their pivotal role in our ongoing success cannot be overstated. Recognizing the untapped potential within these communities, we have implemented a range of unique projects that engage and empower unemployed and underprivileged individuals from rural areas.

In collaboration with these individuals, we have successfully initiated projects that involve the crucial task of collecting and cleaning seeds. This not only provides much-needed part-time and full-time employment opportunities but has also fostered the growth of aspiring entrepreneurs who now supply us with high-quality seeds.

By embracing the ethos of empowerment, we firmly believe that we are contributing to the education and upliftment of those less fortunate within our society. As part of our comprehensive training program, we prioritize raising awareness about nature preservation and conservation. Currently, we are proud to be working closely with up to 80 independent individuals in the KwaZulu-Natal region alone, sharing our knowledge and resources to collectively drive positive change.
