Africa: Live Safari Sightings

Africa: Live Safari Sightings


WINNER: BEST TRAVEL APP IN AFRICA (VISA AND SOUTH AFRICA TOURISM AWARDS 2014).

Africa: Live helps you find and share real-time African animal sightings on your phone or tablet as well as generate data for conservation. It is a must-have for any African safari, whether to Kruger or Addo, Serengeti or Pilanesberg.

Our live safari sightings map shows you what animals are near you right now (as reported by over 40,000 other app users) and allows you to easily and immediately share your sightings with other safari goers or anyone watching the map around the world, as well as for use in conservation research. You can easily add your own sightings and photos directly and immediately to the map.

Within the app you can purchase detailed offline maps of the major parks in South Africa including: Kruger Park, Hluhluwe, Imfolozi, Pilanesberg, Addo Elephant Park, Kgalagadi, Madikwe, Marakele, iSimangaliso (St Lucia), Ndumo, Ithala, Gondwana and uMkhuze. These maps include 10,000KMs of tar, dirt and 4X4 trails, footpaths, waterholes, hides, viewpoints, picnic spots, gates and other points of interest.

The app also includes (as an in-app purchase) the Phone Ranger Safari Field Guide which has over 90 minutes of audio commentary by a leading ranger on the animals your likely to see on your game drives as well as hundreds of stunning photos including spoor, skulls, scat and distribution maps.

The help section includes gate opening times and park contact details.

FEATURES
- The ONLY live map of Africa showing your location and the location of recent animal sightings.

-
- Dynamic Q&A. If you're not sure what it is you're looking at, or what it is doing just ask us via the map and we'll answer (or if we can't, our Facebook friends will!).
- Safari tips, contact details and lots more useful information.
- Contribute to our citizen-scientist research database: we catalogue, analyse and will share sightings data with conservation bodies to support wildlife audits.

Please note:
- A desktop version of the map can be viewed www.wildafricalive.com. However performance of the desktop version of this map will be highly limited on a mobile device.

Loving it Offline maps definitely recommended as is the field guide, although shame we had to pay for it :) Combines the best of all the other safari apps and, even better, it actually works.
