Join William Mathebula of Joe's Lifestyle & Butchery- Alexandra for a guided walk through South Africa’s oldest township, Alexandra. Happening 25 June 12h00 - 15h00.

The tour starts from Joe’s Butchery, a popular shisa nyama in Alexandra. The walk then takes to the streets of old Alex, once home to icons such as Nelson Mandela, Samora Machel and Hugh Masekela. Trace the old street plans of Alexandra and stop to look at the many historic houses hidden behind the distinctive crowded yards that Alex is famous for. The tour ends at Joe’s Butchery with a kasi style shisa nyama meal. Choose your meat from the butcher and either braai it yourself or have someone braai it for you.

In particular this JoziWalk focuses on the places where historic and contemporary Alex cross paths, by walking Alex's oldest streets and looking at how they have changed in recent years.
