Tour Details

A guided walk down Rockey Street in Yeoville – the cultural melting pot that remains part of Johannesburg’s heartbeat.

Yeoville’s “United States of Africa” will offer you an experience that will challenge your perceptions and delight your taste buds. Ultimately we want to give you a blank canvas and brush to paint a new picture of the city through your own eyes and prove you don’t need have to travel thousands of kilometers around the African continent to get a taste of Africa.

The Dlala Nje tour guide will be leading you to places like Malalahitoka for traditional Ghanaian Wat, Kifto and Injera, Kin Malabo for more Ghanaian food such as Pondu and Kwanga, Mama Osu will be your Nigerian stop for Akara and Killshi. Baskim offers a mix of African foods such as Konkonte and Ampesie. The tour guide will include a walk through the Yeoville food market where you can purchase fruit and veg you have maybe never seen before. Next stop is at our local favourite La Cameroonaise, for Brochettes and Sangah. After dinner drinks will be hosted at the famous House of Thandoor, and finally we head back to Ponte to view the core of the iconic building
