Where is Young, Famous & African filmed? We discuss the Netflix reality series and its filming locations.
The first Netflix African reality show first made its way to our screens in 2022. As you would expect, it is filled with a cast of beautiful and influential characters, from the world of music, acting, and business, with South African actress and media personality Khanyi Mbaupretty much at the core of the show.
There have been two seasons of the show, with sixteen episodes, and the show does seem to pride itself in its over-the-top presentation and sometimes self-aware silliness.
The relationships veer wildly from over-the-top arguments to, well, more over-the-top arguments, all dressed up in the wildest high-fashion clothing you have ever seen.

Johannesburg, South Africa
The main location for this African-based reality show is Johannesburg. Often appropriately named The City of Gold, the mega city is the largest city and provincial capital of Gauteng, one of the nine provinces of South Africa.
Of course, some stunning and beautiful locations can be used in this kind of show, with the cast often being seen at exquisite hotels, restaurants, and locations. Johannesburg was captured in many striking scenes over the sixteen episodes of the show so far.
Although naming every location our young influencers visit would be impossible, we did spot one or two of them from a couple of episodes, and we are happy to mention them here.
