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 breathtaking 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!


Good news 4×4 adventurers! Now you can put your off-road driving skills to the test without leaving the city.
