History of Yeoville
Yeoville was the place where many European migrants first settled. Back in the day, you would see many migrants from Eastern Europe. Portugal, Germany, Lebanon, UK, Italy, Greece, Ireland but most of all displaced Jews from Europe. So the inner-city of Johannesburg became a melting pot of people and cultures. This quickly changed. Learn about the vast change this area has been through and what makes it so uniquely African today.
Take a historical guided walk down Rockey Street in Yeoville – a steaming broth that remains part of Johannesburg’s inner-city heartbeat.
Yeoville’s “United States of Africa” will offer you an experience that will challenge your perceptions and delight your taste buds. We want to give you a blank canvas and brush so that you can paint a new picture of Johannesburg. You'll see that you don’t need to travel thousands of kilometres around the African continent to get a taste of Africa.
What type of cuisine?
Our local guide will be leading you to places like Malalahitoka for traditional Ghanaian Wat, Kifto, Injera, Pondu and Kwanga. Mama Osu will be our Nigerian stop for Akara and Killshi...just to name a few.

"Absolute amazing perspective-changing tour of Johannesburg. As regular traveller to East Africa, Joburg seemed like many other large African cities. I was warned that you have to watch out in certain areas and could be easily robbed. A perspective was built around a criminal intensive city. When I did the tour, this perspective was radically changed and I came to deeply appreciate Joburg... a much deeper insight in Africa than on any other tour I have done in my many travels."
