Johannesburg is one of the most populous cities in the country. The city has become home to representatives of different nationalities. Foreign tourists will be particularly interested in culture and lifestyle of the ethnic tribes. However, when dealing with the indigenous people, tourists should take into account a lot of important points. The locals have rather different approach to Europeans. Many of the natives simply prefer to avoid them and show their feelings quite openly. Others, however, can express increased interest and attention to foreigners.
When communicating with the local residents tourists should not be aggressive. They need to be friendly and quite restrained. It also is not recommended to photograph the local people without their permission, as well as to try to enter someone’s home without invitation. If the local people do not feel any threat or aggression from the side of foreigners, they will behave in a very friendly and open manner.
When it comes to clothes, there are no strict rules here. Classic and casual styles of clothes are very appropriate, but tourists shouldn’t wear khaki colored clothes. Wearing accessories, clothes and shoes in military style is simply not accepted here. Even children are not allowed to wear such outfits. Residents of the city usually prefer European style of clothes, but people in small tribal villages located in the outskirts of the city can wear national costumes and very specific headgear.
