Maboneng Precinct

“With its beginnings in art, Maboneng has evolved into a collaborative hub of culture, business and lifestyle that entices curiosity, encourages exploration and promotes a sense of urban togetherness.” This is what the official website describes the Maboneng Precinct as but of course there are many more layers to explore. Maboneng means ‘place of light’ and there’s no arguing that at night, it comes alive. From it’s monthly nighttime market, to hip places to hang out and a nightlife that’ll have you jiving until the dawn, you’ll never want the night to end. Check out what’s on offer by heading to the website here:
