The eastern side of Jozi has become the epicentre of an inner-city revitalisation, with Maboneng at its centre. Featuring a revival of arts and culture, this vibrant urban space is one of the most lively and trendy areas of Johannesburg today.
Our guide will lead you through the labyrinth of trendy and inviting coffee shops, restaurants, galleries and creative spaces. You’ll be introduced to the ground-breaking Museum of Africa Design, considered a trans-African cultural centre, and the continent’s first design laboratory.
You’ll then discover the emerging artists at Art Afrique and the WeCreate design studio. In between, you’ll find enticing shopping for all your tastes from vintage boutiques to designer showrooms. Then, let yourself be tempted by some of the most talked-about new cafes, restaurants and nightlife spots in the country.
It’s all very modern and exciting, and a popular place for locals and visitors alike. But with this tour, the story of the past and present of this inner-city neighbourhood is told, giving you a full picture of the community mindfulness and upliftment that has resulted in a successful economic centre and a diverse melting pot of cultures and people.
