Overview

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.

Having lived in JHB for most of my life, Ponte and Hillbrow have over the past few years been a bit of a no-go area. I've always had a curiosity to see and discover the innards of Ponte and see for myself what this iconic...More
