Africana Books was established By Arne Schaefer in 1998 and in 2016 Stefan Blank was apprenticed to take over the running of the business which culminated in a full take in February 2018. Arne has in the meantime moved to Port Nolloth where he has opened the Namaqualand Repository but continues to give advice.
