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.

Absolutely worth it to have someone show you around such an amazing, historically rich area. Even 'local' South Africans can learn a lot and put our history in perspective with how it practically impacted living in South Africa. Friendly guides, great food, 100% worth it.
