Description

Meet your local guide at the Curiocity office in the Maboneng Precinct, sip a cup of fresh-brewed cappuccino before you begin your journey. Discover the Maboneng Precinct, also known as 'Place of Light,' a district that has fast become a center of the creative energy for Johannesburg's urban artists, designers, and entrepreneurs. Make your way to Kwa Mai-Mai Traditional Market, one of the oldest markets in Johannesburg. Walk past colorful stalls selling traditional medicines, ethnic attires, beaded jewelry, walking sticks, and handicrafts. Now is the best time to buy souvenirs to take back home. Continue to the Collectors Treasury, the largest second-hand bookstore in the Southern hemisphere, before you hop on a shuttle to the Carlton Centre building — a 50-story skyscraper offering panoramic views of the city. Visit the Gandhi Square, named after Mahatma Gandhi, the Indian leader and freedom fighter who spent 21 years in South Africa, and learn about his time in Johannesburg. End your tour with a stroll down the downtown Main Street, where you will walk past the Chancellor's House and the Shadow Boxing statue — a monumental sculpture portraying the late South African president, Nelson Mandela, as a young boxer.
