Have you made plans yet for the upcoming holidays? Whether you're road tripping, visiting distant shores, or cruising on the couch, we've got some apps to help you get the most out of your well-deserved break.
Africa: Live helps you find and share real-time animal sightings, and generate data for conservation. It's an essential app if you're travelling to Kruger or Addo, or even the Serengeti. Search for wildlife sightings, or if you are the first to spot an elusive creature, share it on the app along with your best pics. The app also helps you navigate parks, with or without signal.
Awesome South Africa
With this app on your phone, you'll never run out of things to do. It's packed with up-to-date information about most of South Africa's top tourist destinations. Find restaurants, get flight specials, and plan your itinerary with must-see attractions.
VoiceMap’s audio guides are produced by insightful local storytellers, including journalists, podcasters, filmmakers, novelists, and tour guides. Plug in your earphones and go exploring with locals, who guide you based on your GPS position. In Cape Town, for example, you can go on a guided tour of the Bo-Kaap or Kirstenbosch.
If your holiday involves surfing on the couch and running errands, OrderIn is going to be your best friend. It is one of the best ways to order food for delivery or pickup. You pay the same price as you would at the restaurants, and the delivery fee is reasonable. You also get notified when your delivery is arriving, so you don't even need to wait for the doorbell to ring!
