See Johannesburg ...Through Its Street Art

Est. Reading: 2 minutes
Johannesburg is one of Africa's biggest street art hubs, with some of the most striking murals in the world. Why not try something completely different and see the city through its graffiti? eBiker's Urban Safari's will let you do just that. 

Eelco Meyjes loves street art. In fact, he loves it so much that he's created his very own bicycle and safari vehicle urban street tours to show people Johannesburg's most beautiful murals.

Meyjes believes Johannesburg is the new graffiti mecca of the African continent, and his company eBiker is taking full advantage of that. They know of over 800 graffiti walls in the city, and have carefully curated their routes to show you the best of these.

"Its no secret that many first time visitors to Johannesburg often comment on our high walls and electric fences. This reality has inadvertently created thousands of open air canvases for graffiti writers to share their work both legally and illegally," Meyjes writes on his website. "We now have some of the best graffiti writers in the world and some of them are now receiving commissions from both local as well as international corporates, governments, education centers and private individuals etc. Worldwide graffiti, or street art as it is now so often called, is arguably the biggest single modern art movement in the world."

eBiker's November Graffiti Urban Safari Rides take place 20 and 27 November this month and are very popular, so booking is a must (details below).

They start and end from the popular Delta Cafe in Dunkeld and are limited to nine guests only, with no children under the age of nine permitted.
