Dlala Nje Inner City tours 

Dlala Nje has been changing minds and changing hearts since 2012. Their walking tours take Joburg natives and tourists alike through some of the most notorious areas of downtown Johannesburg, showing them the beauty and exuberance of the people living there rather than focusing on the crime or degradation in the area. Dlala Nje is yet to announce whether they will be resuming their inner city walking tours under level 3 lockdown, but keep an eye out on their Facebook page for updates. You can also buy a Dlala Nje voucher to use at a later date to help keep them afloat during this period.
