In a fresh directive aimed at empowering travellers on personalised South Africa holidays, Cape Town tourism officials have erected gigantic yellow photo frames in the city so tourists can pose for a snap with Table Mountain in the background.
This fresh idea has been received well by holidaymakers enjoying their vacations in South Africa’s Western Cape and a total of four frames have been deployed at various points in the city, aimed at capturing the iconic Table Mountain from alternative angles.
The Cape Town peak dominates the city skyline and appears on numerous postcards, souvenirs and the like but now, travellers are able to create a small holiday memory, all of their own accord.
One of the frames resides at the Victoria & Albert Waterfront – a popular tourist attraction in Cape Town – while it has been announced that there are plans to expand the overall photo frame offering to seven from the currently existing four sites.
Table Mountain is of course already a stellar tourist attraction, not just in South Africa but on a global level, receiving around 800,000 visitors on its famous cableway every year.
The prevalence of the new rather kooky photo frames is intended to boost the peak’s allure even further while providing a spot for tourists to get snap happy with content for their Instagram and fellow social media accounts.
Speaking of the frames’ introduction into Cape Town, Mayoral Committee Member for Tourism, Garreth Bloor said “Each of the seven frames really is a chance not only to get a particular view of Table Mountain but to go to different parts of the city and experience the nature of that particular area.”
