We took a 2 hour walking tour of this area that we booked through Curiosity. Our guide was super knowlegable and friendly, and I would recommend this to anyone who wants an out-of-vehicle experience in Johaannesburg.

It was really sad to see this once vibrant location gone to the dogs.It is now like a sewer. 80% of the shops are closed and some are closing. Lots of drug addicts and homeless. The streets are littered with garbage.So folks stay far away.

Since Covid the area has not rebounded and felt unsafe and trashy. Wouldn’t recommend going now as a tourist. Our guide said it was great before but it has changed.

Completely run down, chaotic, dirty with trash and very unsafe for tourists. Did not want or let alone get out of the car to spend any time there.

Nice experience in the city lifestyle lots of night life ,you gotta love those gents taking you pictures but be careful they not for free but best to tell that you were at maboneng its so symbolic to social networks people love the place i do ,you have an option of local tarven and liquer store in case you wanna have a good time but on a budget well the pricing can be a bit pricey but its welcoming to everyone there's a lot of restuarants but do support local artist and local vendors most weekends gets busier lovely community but do keep in mind of celphone snatchers run with uber cars now and again but i encourage you to be on a look out but very nice vibe best lifestyle in the city.
Meet the rasta guy on the corner there along Pata Pata for loose cigarates for smokers and enjoy the experience ,i recomment Betrand for quite space love the staff there .

We explored the neighbourhood with a guided walking tour, and hugely enjoyed the many beautiful murals and street art in this colourful re-developed neighbourhood.

he vibe is electric and you're bound to have a laugh or two. There is a variety of restaurants that would meet your craving needs and countless art pieces that really take your breath away. There are really good photographers ready to capture every moment so all in all, your visit to Maboneng is memorable.
