Who we are
Our story is one that is informal, engaging and has been trusted since our first store opened in Pietermaritzburg in 1977. We are inspired by Africa, its outdoor pioneers, braai fanatics, bushveld explorers, off road adventurers, memory makers and all those who embrace its diversity – especially the outdoors.
We at Trappers value experiences. We loathe fashion, fads & the next best thing. We are motivated by people, travel and time spent together in faraway places or just around the fire at home. A devotion to simplicity and the human spirit that is steadfast in all we do.
We strive to make beautifully considered, timeless, locally manufactured outdoor goods that are classic, authentic and readily available in all our stores. Goods that do not fail.
Collaborating with leading equipment and footwear brands to grow their brand along with ours ensures a wide range of products and emboldens our objective of achieving the highest level of customer service in our stores.
We celebrate our differences and have a sense of inclusivity in all we do. We are committed to recruiting people with a great attitude and plenty of energy. People who understand that days spent in the berg, bush or at the beach are as good as it gets - relationship building moments. However, ensuring our staff are well trained and up to date on all the latest products we stock is a key driver to the success of our brand and something that we prioritise continuously.
Our products are available to purchase in more than 20 store locations across South Africa. Our updated store concepts in Fourways Mall, Centurion Mall, Ballito Lifestyle Centre & Woodlands Boulevard, and in many more great locations to come, are spaces that personify our vision and instill a uniquely local feel in an engaging and aspirational setting. Every detail is designed with the utmost care and attention. We strive to make our customers feel like guests who are welcomed into an environment where products are beautifully displayed and where customers ultimately utilise our space as the first step to their next adventure.
At Trappers you will find people who are approachable and conversational. We believe that it’s the small things that count and sometimes all it takes is a friendly greeting when you walk into one of our stores .
