On 1 August 2016, we’ll be embarking on a six month journey to capture as many of South Africa’s top tourist attractions for Google Street View.
Google has partnered with us (Drive South Africa) and South African Tourism to make this happen.
We’re looking for South African’s from all walks of life to nominate their local favourite trails and outdoor attractions (think: your favourite hike in the Drakensberg, your special urban running trail), AND to help us capture these gems using Google’s custom designed Google Trekker backpack camera (images in the link below).
Now, we’d like to get the word out and thought you might be interested in the story.
We’ll be creating insane content for six months and thus we’d like to get a couple of select journos, bloggers and publishers on board from the get go.
For more information, here’s a media pack which includes the official press release as well as some high res imagery with captions: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B_ewjvNhP1LdVnhfR3pQWGpZbWM&usp=sharing
Are you interested in helping spread the word and/or joining on one of our treks?
