Around About Cars
Since 1995

The “Go To” guy for anything in this area is Bheki Dube – super uber guy! He owns accommodation in Maboneng called Curiocity Backpackers. This place oozes so much of vibe and relaxation. A hidden treasure in the heart of the east of the CBD. It’s told that Nelson Mandela and Archibishop Desmond Tutu took refuge in the building on several occasion.

Curiosity Backpackers offers you many cultural adventures such as walking tours through the inner city as well as bicycle tours through the city. If you would like to go further exploring – there is an opportunity to visit local surroundings such as Soweto. It has a selection of very comfortable dorm beds and private rooms.
