Lanzerac recently launched the very first High Definition 360˚ Panoramic Virtual Tour of any hotel in South
Africa. It was produced through a long process with partners Gecko Digital Global, and the end result is nothing short of spectacular.
“After 330 years you would think that we would know every (is it not ‘every hook, nook and cranny’) nook and cranny of this exquisite Estate,” says General Manager, Emile Langenhoven, “but once you immerse yourself in this High Definition 360˚ Panoramic Virtual Tour, which includes some of the most breathtaking drone footage ever captured of the Jonkershoek Valley, you find yourself experiencing Lanzerac in a whole new light.”
Since its 330-year celebrations last year, Lanzerac has been working hard to make good on their promise that “the best is yet to come”. One of those projects has been the making of the High Definition 360˚ Panoramic Virtual Tour which was launched just in time for their 331st birthday celebrations on 28 February 2023.
The making of this ‘first’ was a long and detailed process which included meticulous planning, followed by many hours of filming and extensive editing. It proved to be an exciting and creative journey too. The Gecko Digital Global producers left no stone unturned in capturing Lanzerac in the most beautiful way, including teetering off a ladder in the middle of the swimming pool to get the shot they were after!
The Lanzerac 360˚Showcase allows first time travel partners and guests alike to experience a taste of what they are signing up for in order to allay any doubts and amp up the anticipation levels. And, of course, it serves as a beautiful digital souvenir for past guests who will always have their memories, and now, a world-class way to share them with family and friends.
