Find Johannesburg In Your Pocket City Guides in print


“On a trip to Johannesburg, this was the only guide I could find that was up-to-date and informative about the city. Everything else I saw skirted around what there was to offer and treated it as a hub for Kruger National Park, but this really got under the skin. I’ve been a fan of In Your Pocket since then... They really know their stuff.” Travel editor, The Independent UK

Johannesburg In Your Pocket celebrates its sixth birthday in February 2020. In 2019 In Your Pocket City guides launched three mini-guides for key tourism neighbourhoods in Johannesburg – Rosebank, City Centre & Melville, and Sandton (a new issue is published every six months). and in September 2019 launched an annual issue of our city guide magazine to Johannesburg and surrounds.

Our new look magazine is now an 
annual publication which includes a comprehensive guide to Joburg's many distinctive neighbourhoods, a month-by-month calendar of all the major events to look out for on the Joburg cultural landscape, as well as the ultimate guide to 25 essential Joburg experiences, from graffiti walks and Soweto tours to day trips in the Cradle of Humankind, art galleries, museums and aerial adventures, that every Joburg visitor needs to try. 

The mini-guides are handy pocket-sized guides to everything you need to know about making the most of Joburg's key neighbourhoods, and are filled with our recommendations of the best places to eat, drink, shop and hang out in Sandton, Rosebank, Johannesburg City Centre and Melville. They include walkable neighbourhood maps highlighting key attractions and public transport routes.
