The local travel industry has taken strain in the last few weeks due to the Covid-19 pandemic and South Africa’s lockdown regulations.
While no one is allowed to travel during the 21-day lockdown period, the folks at @southafrica Instagram account have launched a photo tourism website to inspire wanderlust for those travellers who are getting cabin fever.
The new website, This Is South Africa, will become a powerful local travel planning resource to inspire travellers post-lockdown trips.
Page manager for the @SouthAfrica account on Instagram, Craig Rodney, said the website combined the practicality of Google Maps and the visual aspect of Instagram.
He said each photo will include location details, a list of activities, and other relevant information to assist with future travel plans.
