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.

I took my staff and some international visitors on the tour. All were very apprehensive but soon warmed to the idea Grant made everyone feel at ease. Thoroughly reccommended for locals and tourists!

All my life I've seen Ponte tower from a distance and wondered what secrets it holds. The Ponte tour provides a white Jozi boy a chance to see what its like inside, while the walking tour is a nostalgic reminder of being a little boy...More
