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.

Very interesting tour with a mix of history of Ponte Tower (better when you are not scared of heights ;) ) and street experience. Very safe. Loved the tour and our amazing guide Bijou ! Thanks

While a lot of time for the Hillbrow tour was spent in Ponte City, it certainly has a fascinating history. It is also a good example of a well-managed, reclaimed building. I felt more time could be spent on the streets, but enjoyed everything that...More

The whole experience was so great! From the immensity of Ponte and it's wild history to the streets of Berea and Hillbrow, you've never experienced a tour quite like this. Go have your mind opened, your privilege challenged and your heart warmed!
