Dlala Nje offers immersive experiences of Hillbrow, Yeoville and other parts of Johannesburg inner-city. As some of South Africa's most notorious - yet misunderstood - neighbourhoods, they remain taboo for most South Africans and many tourists. Dlala Nje removes this fear of the unknown with authentic experiences like no other. Hit the streets for a view of REAL inner city Johannesburg.
