Area Info:

Melville is famous for its abundance of restaurants, coffee and book shops, making it an exciting area for tourists and business people from all over South Africa and abroad to explore. It is a residential area where scores of people from the arts, education, and media have settled over the past half a century. This might be part of the reason that visitors describe people here as extremely friendly and interesting. Johannesburg has a wealth to discover in terms of recent history, nature, archaeological sites and leisure activities for those who do not have time or resources for a visit to Kruger Park, the Garden Route and more. The area also contains shopping malls, tertiary institutions, media businesses, theatres, and hospitals.
