Tour guide of Table Mountain and more… on your mobile phone

Digital Content

Visitors to South Africa, or those of trying to re-acquaint themselves with historical highlights, could find the newly launched Mobiguide particularly helpful: short video tour guides that can be downloaded to your mobile phone. Mobiguide regional guides can also be previewed online. At this point the company has ten major areas covered: Kirstenbosch, Robben Island, Table Mountain, Stellenbosch Wine Route, the Apartheid museum, parts of Soweto, the Newtown Precinct, Cape Point, Constitutional Hill and the Waterfront in Cape Town. Mobiguides can either be downloaded directly using a mobile phone or downloaded using a computer and loaded onto a player such as an iPod, MS Zune or Creative Zen. Each guide is charged at R30 (US$4). Formats available include mpeg4, avi and 3gp and currently support English, French, German, and Mandarin Chinese.
