Visitors to Saint George’s Mall can now enjoy the luxury of Free WiFi! Conveniently located on the doorstep of Taj Cape Town, in the heart of the CBD, the initiative is sure to provide a valued service to students, business people, tourists and stall traders.
Accessible to anyone near the top of St George’s Mall, the new Free WiFi zone is the result of an on-going project between service provider Connected Space, the Central City Improvement District and the Cape Town Partnership. A daily 100 MB of free internet access has been made available in the area to not only add value to office workers’ spare time but also to school-goers as they take a break on one of the many shaded benches.
The free public WiFi project was initially conceptualised by WiFi experts Connected Space as a World Design Capital 2014 project. As a provider of advanced WiFi Hotspot solutions, Connected Space sought to use their unique insights into how design, such as that of a WiFi network, can transform life and the space around it.
Already an extremely popular and successful public space, the project looks towards increasing business and opportunities in the area as well as promoting new technologies which emerge within areas with readily available access to online services. Gaining access to the hotspot is relatively simple and people using the WiFi for the first time will be asked to login to the system to create an account before signing-up for their 100 megabytes of daily data.
Taj Cape Town is especially excited to have Free WiFi on the very doorstep of the hotel as guests will now have an opportunity to find places to shop or fun events nearby even easier than ever before.

South African Tourism is making preparations for the Lilizela Tourism Awards, now in its second year as the premier travel and tourism competition which celebrates tourism business excellence.
The Lilizela Tourism Awards recognises and rewards tourism players and businesses who work passionately and with pride to grow South Africa’s global destination competitiveness. Drawn from an Nguni word which means to ululate: an act of congratulations when someone has done something well, the uniquely African Lilizala Awards distinguishes itself from the mainstream. From delivering a world class product to providing unmatched service, these awards celebrate excellence, creativity and innovation across a range of categories.
While entries for the 2014 Lilizela Tourism Awards have been open since the 1st of March, a large number of ‘last minute’ enquiries has necessitated the granting of an extension of deadline in order to offer tourism business owners nation-wide a fair chance of being recognised. The extension allows more time for those who have only just discovered this opportunity to be recognised for their service to the South African tourism industry and a chance to participate in the prestigious awards programme. To ensure that these deserving pockets of excellence are not left out, the entry date for the Lilizela Tourism Awards has been extended to the 30th of June 2014 with consumer voting closing on 13 July.
This extension also allows more time for consumers to participate in the decision making process and award organisers themselves invite all to get involved, comment and vote for the best tourism experiences and products in South Africa. Panels of knowledgeable and experienced tourism professionals are set to adjudicate each category in the awards but consumers are reminded that their votes will count when it comes to awarding these establishments.
All finalists and nominees will receive a certificate of excellence with the winner of each category receiving a prestigious South African Lilizela Awards trophy. Winners will be announced at the Lilizela Tourism Awards ceremony during Tourism month September.
Taj Cape Town is pleased to announce that we will be participating in the Lilizela Awards this year and would like to invite friends, fans and guests of the hotel to please vote for our establishment.
The Taj Cape Town offers luxury accommodation in Cape Town in heart of the city centre and is within walking distance to most tourist attractions, shopping outlets, bustling restaurants and nightlife.
