Jozi Tours and Tales

03 Mar 2024
Veteran South African journalist Lucille Davie offers a variety of engaging tour experiences that are richly imbued with her intimate knowledge of the history of Joburg and its most famous residents. The range of tours she offers is broad.  On a Randlords tour you will go inside a Sir Herbert Baker mansion and learn about the Randlords and their legacy. Perhpas you'd prefer a Gandhi tour on which you will visit places of significance to his time in South Africa. Or, admire more than 500 artworks on a William Burchell tour and discover some of the city's oldest trees on an old trees of Joburg tour.

For an especially interactive history lesson, join Lucille on her four-hour mountain bike tour along 25km of the Braamfontein Spruit. The route covers some of Joburg’s most interesting old suburbs, following a path from Blairgowrie in the north through the beautiful Delta Park and the pretty suburb of Linden and onwards through Albert’s Farm, Sophiatown with a rest on the return journey at Westpark Cemetery. Along the way Lucille shares her vast knowledge of the places that hold Joburg’s most colourful stories and the people who walked its streets. Lucille’s tours are held monthly depending on demand and you will need to bring your own mountain bike with you (see our Cycling the City feature for rental suggestions).
