History

Dlala Nje was founded in October 2012 and, in a nutshell, aims to challenge perceptions and to create opportunities. We do this through running inner-city immersions and experiences in some of our city’s most misunderstood areas. These immersions and walks have allowed us to build and run a community center aimed at providing a safe learning environment for children and youth.

Trip Advisor Reviews

It was so refreshing to be able to walk through parts of the inner-city that I had originally felt were inaccessible and not only feel completely safe, but grateful that I was able to experience a part of my own city that I never thought I would.

We learned a lot and more importantly it was an amazing experience to be soaked into this interesting and evolving culture

ScotchAndSuits (2017-05-24 )

From start to finish an incredible, interesting and thought provoking experience. It will change the way you think about these 'notorious' areas

Rosie S (2017-03-13 )

This tour corrected many of my assumptions - things are still bad but they are getting better, and there is much optimism

Edward135 (2017-02-10 )

The walk was brilliant. Everybody on the streets was really friendly and welcoming. It's all about what you're making out of it, especially during the part where the boys let you walk alone through the shopping street

Nora W (2017-01-11 )

Wow! What an experience. Ponte City is one of the best things I've ever seen. Couldn't recommend it enough. If you're in to urban decay, this is the holy grail

Hugh B (2016-11-25 )

As a south african who had heard about Hillbrow, I was sceptical and I admit, even a bit scared. I was not expecting to learn anything new or be blown away, but I was!

Sanisha N (2016-10-06 )

What a brilliant experience!! Better than I could have ever expected. Not only was it a huge amount of fun, it was educational as well

simoneheadlines (2016-08-24 )

A must for anyone visiting Joburg and wanting to experience something other than the sanitised northern suburbs
