As well as being one of the most beautiful locations for taking a selfie, Victoria Falls is also the perfect location for bungee jumping, diving and cliff swinging. Or, if you’re brave enough, taking cliff edge selfies with friends.

One of the most fun locations you can visit and take selfies at is Mineral Beach in Israel. Here, you can spend the day slathering your body in nutrient-rich mud, sunbathing and floating in the incredibly salty dead sea.

There is nothing more fun than covering yourself and your friends in mud and then taking selfies together.
