Maponya Mall lies in the heart of Soweto about 10 kms from the Baragwanath hospital on the Old Potch road. If you are ever in South Africa (or if you are here already) and ever around the Jo'burg area, I suggest you take a tour through Soweto and visit this mall, It is truly beautiful and interesting. Here you will be entertained and find real nicely priced goods as well. If you are into ethnic and cultural dress, there are a few gems to find here also. The people who frequent these corridors are very friendly and true to the warm African nature of making you feel welcome. Nice places to eat or stop for ice-cream or coffee and even something with a bit of a kick for the social occasion.
The surrounding Soweto suburbs also have allot to offer. It is very safe if you travel with someone who knows the area. I travel in and out of Soweto by myself often, I love the vibe and it is a very interesting place with loads of history!
