Welcome to the most detailed travel guide for overland travel in Africa. This offline app offers a great map and huge amount of detailed places of interest for planning your next safari. Your GPS location will ensure you stay orientated while using the app on your self-drive trip. Try it out for free The free app contains samples of the map and guide information. If you like what you see, go to in-app purchases and get the full app functionality of the country that you want. How does it work? This is not a routing/navigation app. The app aims to bring you offline access (i.e. no internet connection required) to the following: • A detailed map of the country or region you purchase. The country map roughly corresponds to a 1:1 000 000 paper map in terms of its detail and will allow you to view the map at different zoom levels. The map works similar to a web map with the difference being that all information is installed on your device. It contains place names like cities, towns and villages together with a detailed road and track network. It also shows you all protected areas such as national parks and game reserves together with relevant background data such as rivers, mountains and major attractions. • A detailed guide with the following categories: Places (cities, towns, etc), Attractions & Activities, Parks, Scenic, Camps, Lodging, Food & Drink, Fuel, Shopping, Services and More (miscellaneous points of interest). The guide information is linked to a location on the map and will display as a pin on the map for you to know where it is in reference to where you are. The app will display a map of the country or region and allow you to switch on different categories of points of interest. You can also search for specific places by name. The map search is location sensitive, i.e. results will be relative to the centre of the map. Your position, determined from your iPhone or iPad’s location service, will display on the map so you can accurately orientate yourself on the map. As you drive, your location will update on the map so you always know where you are. (iPhone or iPad with GPS required) The search functionality is linked to the guide categories. For example, if you need to find a campsite, simply switch on the Camps category. Immediately all campsites around you will display on the map and you can click on them for more information. Otherwise, if you know the name of a campsite, enter it into the search block and relevant results will be filtered. What kind of information can you expect? Apart from the categories already mentioned, points of interest will have associated information such as a description, contacts details, facilities and activities and some places will have photos. Have a look at the sample data in the free app to get an idea of what we offer. What about updates? The guides are sold according to year e.g. Namibia 2015 edition. We will provide free updates for one year after it has been replaced by a new edition. In other words, if you buy the 2015 edition, you will receive updates throughout 2015 and 2016. You can obviously continue to use your guide for as long as you want, it does not expire - just like a book.

  • schlecht

    Von doc_dolittle
    Namen genau ueber den wesentlichen Punkten; nur sehr begrenzter Zoom; wenig hilfreich; nicht empfehlenswert!!!!!
  • Ungeeignet für Navigation

    Von sonnenmohn
    Leider kann man nur bedingt weit hinein zoomen so dass man bei einer Stadt nicht genau weiss in welcher Strasse man ist. Viel gute Infos an lokalen Orten helfen weiter. Aber dafür reicht auch der Reiseführer. Schade, hätten man richtig programmieren können. Fehlte wohl an den Finanzen. Schade.
  • Perfektes Tool für die Reise durch Afrika

    Von Coffeecup82
    Die App ist annähernd Perfekt. Verlässliche Navigation und Information zu Unterkünften, Tankstellen und Läden. Nur die Auskunft der Streckenlängen fehlt. Daher nur 4 Sterne.
  • Bedingt nützlich

    Von Bastian1969
    Haben die App in Namibia benutzt. Alleine die Möglichkeit offline die Telefonnummern von verschiedenen Lodges und Apartements nachzuschauen ist nützlich. Das geht aber genausogut mt einem Reiseführer. Zur Navigation ist die App nur bedingt nutzbar da die Karte SEHR grob ist. In der Stadt kann man damit garnicht navigieren. Ein Unding ist, das es keine Möglichkeit gibt die Entfernung zu einem ausgewählten Objekt anzuzeigen!
  • Only Namibia and Botswana available....
