Love this app!

What a great app...the thought and careful preparation that went into developing this app is clear to see. Highly recommended!

My wishlist improvement would be around the sightings functionality - it would be great to be able to track different trips or days against each other. So there could be an all-time sightings log (as it currently stands), and also a per trip account. In many cars/families it becomes a bit of a game to “beat” the previous days sightings, and having that stored on an app would be quite useful for reminiscing and when going on subsequent trips. To take it even one step further, to be able to link the route taken to the sighting (and maybe even a photo) would be amazing...(but I’m getting ahead of myself!). Well done, love your work!

Highly recommended!

The thought and work that has gone into creating and developing this app is apparent as soon as you open it. Once downloaded, it works perfectly offline, allowing you to check maps, identify animals and check off sightings etc whilst on the road anywhere in Kruger Park. The animal and bird photos are beautiful and there is loads of useful and interesting information for each one. I downloaded the app onto my iPad instead of my phone, so that we could have the benefit of a bigger screen for our trip. My only suggestion would be to make provision for dated checklists, so that we could log sightings for each day (or for each visit to Kruger). Huge thanks to the developers for this wonderful app, which is great value for money!

Great Kruger App

This app is excellent for new or regular visitors to the Kruger Park. The amount of information available on animals and maps of the Kruger is great. A very impressive feature is that you can download all the info on the app and use it offline ( there are many parts of the Kruger that do not have signal.) I would highly recommend this app not only for when you are in the park, but also for planning your next trip to the Kruger. This is the most complete App you can get for the Kruger, it has the animals and maps all at your finger tips, so you don’t have to jump between animal books and maps. You can also log all your sightings as you go.
