Today at the Opening Ceremony, Sabie LTO (under the auspices of the Sabie Chamber of Commerce & Tourism) announced the launch of the Lone Creek Falls Photo frame. This iconic Frame is engineered to be interactive with visitors, who are able to turn numerous Blocks suspended on a column built into the platform, choosing picture icons and words to make a range of messages such as “She Said Yes” “We Love Sabie Panorama Route” etc., to be included in their photos of lasting memories.
The large, wooden frame, discreetly tucked away from the mainstream pathways, stands close to one side of the breath-taking Lone Creek Waterfall in Sabie, Mpumalanga, offering visitors to this beautiful region a perfect vantage point from which to take photos of a stunning waterfall with friends and family, and to share these pictures with the world. The intentionally authentic wooden photo frame was the brain-child of the Sabie Local Tourism Organisation committee members.
“Digital technology has profoundly changed the way in which tourists interact with destinations and with each other, and it was time for Sabie to create an opportunity that our modern day travelers would want to share on the ever-popular social media platforms,” said Heather Berry, of Sabie LTO.
“Of course, this Frame would not have been possible if it wasn’t for the generous and complete sponsorship and installation of the Frame by Peter & Marina Daniel of SABIE POLES, the engineering expertise of Hannes Steenkamp, together with Danie Boshoff of Global Poles, and the co-operation of Safcol, who gave permission for the placement of the Frame at Lone Creek Falls. A huge thank you to everyone involved”, said Annelise Strydom, of Sabie LTO.
