Maboneng – Joburg’s Place of Colour

Maboneng is situated in the inner city of Johannesburg.  An area which one would usually avoid and where I have driven around nervously many years ago when lost on the way to a wine merchant.

Today, thanks to concerted urban revival efforts this “place of light” is now the place to go.  Boyang Gape Tours and Travel gave me a sneak peak of the best of Maboneng.  Very colourful and VERY vibey.  Many coffee shops, restaurants, craft sellers but very importantly – unlimited photo opportunities.  The street art adds energy to the neighbourhood and it was like driving through an art gallery.  Although I only visited Fox Street I will return to walk down the other alleys. Maboneng is just sooo instragramable!
