A tour group outside the former offices of Mandela & Tambo Attorneys in Fox Street, Joburg. “Once, these streets were unwalkable,” I heard the tour guide say. Well, that’s not really true. They’ve always been walkable, maybe just not for tourists. But I can highly recommend a stroll down Fox, ideally on a Saturday morning. Park at the Fox Street Sheds, grab a cappuccino and meander around the market for a while, and then head east for a few blocks to the Carlton Centre. Take the lift to the viewing deck on the 50th floor – R15 per adult, R10 per child – and savour the panorama of the greatest city in Africa.
