Rhino Africa Launches First-Of-Its-Kind Mobile Video Series To Inform and Inspire African Travellers
21/7/2016 - Rhino Africa, Africa’s leading safari company, has launched a new video series that answers any and all questions travellers to Africa may have. The series, titled Rhino Africa’s Travel Tips, which you can watch by clicking here
, was created exclusively for mobile devices and shot in a vertical format. The worldwide growth of mobile devices was recognised as an exciting channel in which Rhino Africa wants to reach its travellers.
The videos are short, sharp and entertaining. They offer a comprehensive guide to Africa through more than 100 different videos. Alfredo Seidemann, Rhino Africa’s Chief Marketing Officer, explains, ‘The most exciting thing for us is that our travellers can now confidently travel throughout Africa and feel like they have us alongside them with the correct and up-to-date information in the palm of their hands. The series will tackle all the top destinations in Africa and cover topics such as when to go, what to pack and what to do. It’s everything a first-time traveller to Africa could wish to know, and we’re very excited to get it in the hands of our travellers and for them to use it and take advantage of it.’
The project was a reaction to the fact that people are changing the way they use the internet. In 2014, mobile overtook desktop in terms of number of users and time spent on the internet. And alongside this development vertical video has also grown exponentially through social media startups such as Snapchat and Periscope. By 2019, 80% of internet traffic will be video. Rhino Africa recognised the massive opportunity to move into this space and Rhino Africa’s Travel Tips was born.
The series will cover the most popular destinations in Africa such as Cape Town, Victoria Falls, the Kruger National Park, Namibia, Tanzania and Kenya just to name a few. Visit the Rhino Africa Youtube channel to see the videos. Rhino Africa encourages viewers to leave questions regarding African travel in the comments section, which they will answer as the series progresses.
