Weirdest and most expensive items you can buy online in South Africa

If you take some time to look, there are some very expensive, and sometimes wacky, things for sale online in South Africa.

Import services like WantItAll also occasionally run into trouble with their software, listing items for ludicrously-high prices due to technical errors.

While we know it’s just a glitch, it’s still funny to see a 6-man tent on sale for over a million rand.

Below are an assortment of expensive and interesting items you can buy online in South Africa.
