About Us


Established in Durban, May 2011. Wakaberry, offers the best 100% REAL frozen yoghurt which is low in fat! The frozen yoghurt flavours vary from store to store, but customers can expect a wide variety including classics like Strawberry, Vanilla, Mixed Berry and English Toffee and quirkier selections like Green tea, Pomegranate, Kiwi and Watermelon.

Toppings wise, for the fit and healthy we offer fresh fruit, nuts, and cereals, and for the downright wicked there are deliciously decadent desserts such as sweets, chocolates and sauces. Wakaberry is the first South African frozen yoghurt brand to offer this unique self-serve concept that allows each customer to be the boss of their creation. The affordable pricing and pay-per-weight system means that customers can have as much or as little as they like.

We strive to offer flavours that appeal to every Wakafan and pride ourselves on serving only the highest quality 100% real yoghurt, which is 98% fat free, always fresh and a healthy alternative. Our froyo is a great source of calcium as it’s made from the freshest milk, originating from Certified Organic farms. Healthy cows give you healthy yoghurt – our cows have not been treated with artificial growth hormones (rBST), and our yoghurt contains live active cultures, wholesome goodness for everybody. Currently we are working on a sugar-free frozen yoghurt option and a sorbet range. Watch this space!
