Wikiwalks is a collaboration between the University of South Africa, the University of Pretoria and the South African Geographical Society
From cityscapes to rural vistas, South Africa is a beautiful and diverse country. However, many individuals often do not know where to look to see this breath taking beauty even though there is a plethora of both geographical and archaeological heritage. In addressing such a challenge, this project would develop a website that is a collection of walks to, and through, some of the country’s most significant geographical and archaeological inheritance. There have been similar successful initiatives elsewhere, particularly in Europe and the United Kingdom. Such initiatives have allowed members of the public to upload and download maps featuring routes for specific walks that give information on the geographical phenomenon that can been seen along the way.
