Recap of what is known.

It is south of the equator.
It is not South America.
It is not Australia.
It is not an island.
That leaves Antarctica and Africa.
There is a town or city in the picture. This eliminates the only continent without a permanent population.

So: It is in Africa someplace.

Wasn't this photo used before? Or was it a different photo of the same city?
