Selfies turn out so much better when you have something awesome in the background and Mall of Africa has a couple of great selfie spots. Besides the amazing architecture of the mall itself, you shouldn’t miss the impressive PwC Tower—the only twisted tower in Africa, which you can use as a breath-taking backdrop from the Town Square. But the mall’s most Insta-worthy spot must be the incredible twin Africa sculptures in the courtyard outside Tasha’s. Called “There is no time like the present”, this art installation features two 5,5m high sculptures, which represent two faces of the African continent—one rooted in tradition, and one rooted in the modern world, reflecting the wealth of opportunity and potential that lies within us. Meaningful and a brilliant selfie setting!
Waterfall’s latest and hottest selfie spot must be the new Novartis staircase located on Magwa Crescent. It got a major makeover in November, thanks to local artist, Chris Valentine. The vibrant staircase is bound to stop you dead in your tracks and is the perfect backdrop for your impromptu photoshoot, while you wait on the gautrain bus.
