The First Step Into Maboneng Precinct
If there is one thing that everyone who has been to this precinct can agree on, it's that it really has a vibe of it's own. Something that just makes you feel a sense of freedom, reminds you of the beauty that people who aren't from Africa tell you remind you about when they use the terms - Africa, The Motherland.
It's Johannesburg's creative hub where people from all walks come to feel like they really belong and aren't afraid to express themselves through fashion, music, food, crafts and a whole lot more. The Maboneng Precinct turned what was considered to be a place where tons of Zulu people stay to an urban African precinct where everyone can come and enjoy themselves.
Walking The Streets
Honestly, you don't need to be in a restaurant or store to feed off the amazing energy that the people in Maboneng have.
Walking on the streets of the precinct is enough to show you just how much talent the country has to offer, how much character Africans have and just trigger wistful nostalgia that makes you want to stay. You will see visual art which includes graffiti on the walls, painters, crafts as well as people selling things out.
You might also bump into some cycle riders along the way, care free and enjoying the views of this city in a city.
Although there is a stew of diversity at The Maboneng Precinct, one thing that brings everyone together is creative and artistic natures that can't help but shine through.
