Tours of Johannesburg and Soweto

Dlala Nje

This innovative tour company operates the community centre at Ponte City, once the most notorious of Joburg landmarks. Today the iconic building is populated by families and is a beacon of hope in the tough neighbourhood of Hillbrow. Dlala Nje (meaning 'Just Play' in isiZulu) run by journalist Nickolaus Bauer and Mike Luptak offers tours into Hillbrow and neighbouring Yeoville, both areas with diverse communities from countries across Africa. Their night tours of Yeoville are a culinary adventure combining Cameroonian and Congolese food with a nightcap at a 51st floor apartment in Ponte City, with the most awe-inspiring views of the city, while the daytime walking tour of Hillbrow winds its way through the chaotic streets of this much maligned neighbourhood making stops at markets and shebeens on the way.

Dlala Nje use the proceeds from their tours to fund a community centre in the Ponte building and regularly organise fundraising events to support Hillbrow's children and the homeless.
