Ever wanted a website that can tell you about the best places to eat in a city and where to find the best photographers? Well then you’ll probably get some use out of OfLocal, a site which aims to curate the best of South African towns and cities.

Launched in November, the site relies on user-generated content in the shape of lists which are published, shared and voted for by the consumer.

Local business owners are able to create and publish their own personalised lists, as well as share the lists that they are featured in.

Each list can be voted for over a period of 365 days with a countdown of this period viewable on the OfLocal website for tracking purposes. At the end of the voting period, the business that receives the most votes will be announced publicly with the first announcement to be made in February of 2016. Thereafter, the company says, public announcements will be made annually.


The company claims to work in the best interests of both the consumer and the business owners.

“Consumers are able to easily access the best services in specific locations, as well as write and share their personalized lists based on their favourite services within their location,” the company says. “On the other hand, companies can add to and/or edit their business entry to provide prospective consumers with more accurate information about their company”.


Oflocal is the ideal online information website, not only for it’s simplicity and user friendliness, but for the reason that it provides specific and reliable information that saves the consumer ample amounts of time and effort when browsing for location and venue specific information within local coverage.
