Who am I?

I’m Bongani Mathebula, a professional tour operator and tourist guide in Johannesburg and Gauteng. I am also a writer and professional storyteller, and I cover all three levels of storytelling. I’m the founder of JozyTriangel Tours.

Who is JozyTriangel?

JozyTriangel specializes in street art and graffiti walking tours in and around Johannesburg, allowing you get to the look and feel of the real Johannesburg – which means you are able to tell your own story after the experience.

We offer workshops to corporate groups who would like to learn about the world of graffiti or street art. Our other offerings include tours to nature reserves, community tours in specific townships, bungee jumping tours and overnight stays in backpacker spaces situated in townships. Jozy Triangel Tours also offers night tours so you can experience and compare day and night life, like a citizen in residence.

We also offer accommodation.

Our tours

Graffiti tour

We meet at the Sci-Bono centre in Newtown, and good base from which to learn about Mary Fitzgerald Square and then head into the Newtown Mall with its local designers. Along the way and at the underpass of the M1 highway we scout for murals and graffiti. The underpass pillars is a great place to take pictures and it always has more than 14 murals and graffiti artworks.

Joburg Treasure Tour

This is a full-day tour in which we explore different parts of the city. We start in Maboneng, an urban regeneration precinct to the east of the city where you can see the old cinema and get to buy local art.

Our next stop is Gandhi Square where you the old court that was in use in Mahatma Ghandi’s time is located, as well as the first stock exchange in Joburg.

We then then head to Newtown, which boasts some of the most talented artists and performers from all over Africa, and is still the home of all four mediums of art. What is great is that it is still busy with people doing their normal everyday things.

In Braamfontein we explore its multicultural flow and when it started, what makes it the hip and happening spot it is now and why there is just an easiness of growth compared to other spaces in Joburg.

When it comes to urban revitalisation, 44 Stanley was at the forefront. We visit this old powerhouse station to see how it inspired places like Maboneng to exist.
