    We explored the neighbourhood with a guided walking tour, and hugely enjoyed the many beautiful murals and street art in this colourful re-developed neighbourhood.

    Charming, cosmopolitan, down to earth and vibrant. A lot of people complain about homelessness and let's face it we live in South Africa is the most unequal society in the world, and Melville is no exception, what I am really proud of is how the Melville community is so inclusive people from different races, economic situations, sexualities all feel free to express themselves in this melting pot. The community also tries their best to support people who are homeless and that's one of the things that make Melville special.❤❤❤ The night life is definitely for people who are down to earth, looking for a relaxed atmosphere and looking for a goodnight out. The cafe's are also awesome. If shopping is your thing, don't forget to check out the charity shops. And remember to be vigilant no matter where you are in Johannesburg🤷🏾‍♂️.

    This was a very nice experience to drive through the township.
    Was amazed by all the narrow little roads.
    The tour-bus operator had to maneuver a few times very clever to get around some corners.

    We ended up at a sports field for the VWSA Blue Bike handover and this was a very humble experience.

    Well done VWSA..................

    Johannesburg is a great, vibrant city which is relatively new in comparison to other mega-cities around the world.
    The discovery of gold in 1886 contributed significantly to the growth and economic development of the city.
