Johannesburg, The City of Gold, or Jozi, as it is affectionately known is a beautiful place and has some hidden treasures perfect for smartphone photographers. Great urban spots and some that are off the beaten path will excite and satisfy, as you capture moments in this bustling city and be well on your way to becoming the best smartphone photographer ever



This is an area of Joburg that captures so much of what the city is about. From the graffiti splashed across walls, to the many museums and markets you can visit, there is definitely lots to see and do here. This is a photographer’s playground and you’re bound to find more than enough to immortalise with your smartphone, including the moments you share and enjoy with friends at any of the many social hangouts scattered all over. 

The Living Room


This gem of a place is the perfect blend of natural and urban. Located on the top floor of a building in the Maboneng Precinct, which is worth exploring in itself, The Living Room offers breath taking views of the city as well as breath-taking scenery within the confines of its own walls. Draped in greenery, it will feel like you’re in a garden in the sky, which will make for some amazing pictures guaranteed. 

FNB Stadium


This beautifully designed stadium is the largest in South Africa and has played host to some of the most important events the country has ever seen. Be sure to take it all in during a "Soweto Derby” if you want to experience the true vibrancy and atmosphere that is FNB stadium. 



If you want views of the city from staggering heights while surrounded by opulence, then The MichelAngelo is the place for you. Towering above Sandton, here you can experience the glamourous side of Jozi. When you’re done, just head back down to street level for all your shopping, dining and cocktail needs, courtesy of Sandton City and Nelson Mandela Square. 

Cradle of Humankind


Go back to your roots, literally, at the Cradle of Humankind. Situated just outside of Joburg, this region is a World Heritage Site and is home to about 40% of the worlds human ancestor fossils. Snap the amazing rock structures found inside the caves, the wildlife wandering about close by or you and some friends wining and dining in nature, the choice, which you’ll be spoilt with, is all yours.
