Capture Fordsburg tour

Few people know (heck even I sometimes forget) that the very first place I lived when I moved to Jozi in 2004 was Mayfair, a residential Muslim area downtown close to the city centre. I was only there for a few weeks but it really gave me a different introduction to the Jozi that I wouldn’t trade.

Right next to Mayfair is Fordsburg, the business district of the area, where I would do frequent trips for cheap, yummy (unhealthy!) halaal food. Even though I’ve moved 5 times since, when I go back to Fordsburg it feels like I’m going home in a way. Yes, the streets are dirty & there are probably more car guards & beggars than anywhere else but there’s a character & charm to this place that’s hard to describe…

I decided to sign my hubby up for the Capture Fordsburg photographic walking tour last Saturday. The tour is run by Past Experiences who offer a variety of tours (and are open over the festive by the way). It kicked off at the Oriental Plaza & ended back there 2 hours later with a lunch at the infamous Golden Peacock.

Overall he said the tour guide could have been more engaging but still really enjoyed it & it’s well worth the R100.
