Sharing a video clip from the well-known landmark on Instagram, Zozibini can be heard saying: "Look at me, living my best rom-com life. I am here at the top of the Empire State Building. I've never been here before. Always seen it in the movies and can I tell you it looks just as amazing as it does [in the movies]. I'm so so excited to be here."
The Empire State Building has played a backdrop to popular movies including Sleepless in Seattle, King Kong and An Affair to Remember.
After being crowned Miss Universe 2017, Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters also visited the impressive skyscraper shortly after receiving her sash.
For the next year, Zozibini will be set up in a luxurious New York City apartment which she will share with the current Miss USA - she also earns a year-long salary for serving duties that comes along with the title.
Now that Zozi has been crowed, she will have access to several star-studded events where she will get the chance to rub shoulders with Hollywoods elite.
