5 Best Smartphone Photography Destinations in Durban


This laid back and culturally diverse city will not disappoint with the amount of photo worthy opportunities. Durban has a lot to offer, from its many beautiful beaches, to the city itself. Get your shorts, slops and smartphones ready to take on the city and capture some incredible shots

uShaka Marine World


Home to the fifth largest aquarium in the world, if you are keen on ‘underwater’ photography but don’t want to get wet then definitely get some fishy shots here. Seals, Penguins and Sharks are all available for you to immortalise on your smartphone, as well as some very acrobatic Dolphins. What more can you ask for? 

Durban’s Beaches


Ahhh the beaches of Durban, the golden mile, the warm waters of the Indian Ocean make this the ideal spot. Snap some paragliders, kites or surfers, the choice is yours. The waves alone can make for some pretty amazing shots too, or just capture those sun kissed moments as you relax and take a break. 

Victoria Street Market


This market is like a different world altogether. Here you will find all things traditionally African and Indian which makes it somewhat of an explosion of colour. Capture the people, the stalls and all the colourful spices and foods on offer if you’re into that sort of thing, or you can just grab a bite to eat and go the #foodporn route. 



The majestic mountains of natal are home to the Drakensberg Range. Not really in Durban at all, it is still claimed by the city as their own, because that’s how Natal, very friendly and inclusive. If you love nature and want to capture some breath-taking scenery and views, then Drakensberg will not disappoint. Be sure to dress warm though, it’s not quite the temperate climate of Durban. 

Gateway Theater of Shopping


Perhaps the biggest mall in the Southern Hemisphere, and definitely on the list of the Top 50 largest malls in the world, Gateway lives up to its name, The Theater of Shopping. You can get some great action shots at the Skate Park, marvel at the size of the mall itself or capture the highest fountain in Africa. Either way Gateway will have something for you.
