DescriptionOur live game sightings map shows you what animals are near you right now 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.
Kruger is big, animals are relatively small and have got pretty good at hiding. Evolution has taken care of that. Our Kruger: Live map shows you the most recent game sightings that have been reported in Kruger National Park in the last 12 hours by other safari-goers and professional guides via social media or added to the map directly. It helps you get the most out of your safari by increasing the chances of finding those animals you are the most interested in.
You can also easily add your own sightings and photos directly and immediately to the map or from your twitter account by adding the handle @kruger_live. These tweeted sightings will be published on the map, usually within 10 minutes.
The app also includes extensive reference material such as an safari animal field guide, tips to get the most out of your safari, a detailed roadmap of Kruger and camp / gate contact details and opening hours.
