Platinum Road


This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


Driving on the N4 between Pretoria and Botswana, or the N1 between Gauteng and Bela Bela? Turn your road journey into a voyage of discovery!

The Platinum Road is a free audio app containing more than an hour’s worth of remarkable stories relevant to particular places along these routes – all narrated by Radio 702’s David O’Sullivan.

Download the app and the stories will magically find you – as you drive along – without you having to lift a finger.

Using the Platinum Road app you will hear amazing stories about:
• SA’s incredible platinum wealth
• The remarkable Giant African Bullfrog
• Vanished cities and civilisations
• Epic battles fought along the N4 route you’re travelling on
• Our country’s most beloved short-story teller, Herman Charles Bosman
• Heroes and heroics of the South African liberation struggle

Built-in maps show you were you are – and where you’re going.

With this amazing free app you can quickly and easily share your favourite points of interest with friends via email, Facebook and Twitter. Your drive will never be the same again!

Stories on the Platinum Road app are sourced from Peter Delmar’s new The Platinum Road, a painstakingly researched book of true tales from the N4 and N1. Both The Platinum Road book and app are offered free of charge, thanks to sponsorship by Bakwena.

If you’re using the Platinum Road app on an iPad, please remember to turn on WiFi connectivity.

If Bluetooth is activated on your iPhone or iPad, it’s a great idea to play the audio over the car or other portable audio system.

You can, of course, listen to the stories at home – and check out the images – by simply clicking on List or by clicking on individual points of interest on the Map.

The Platinum Road book and the Platinum Road app are published by Parkview Press – a business dedicated to researching, writing and publishing compelling and cost-effective, content-rich media for the travel and tourism sectors. Parkview Press utilises Tourism Radio’s ground-breaking platform and systems.
