Offline Maps

We have built offline maps designed just for game drives so you can use them even in areas with no cell phone network. They are seamlessly integrated with the live sightings layer (so your offline sightings will upload when you get reception again, for example). You can see them here. They are accessed as an in-app purchase within the app.


Designed for game drives

Show roads, tracks, trails and footpaths as well as waterholes, dams, camps, gates and points of interest.

Sightings hotspots

For the parks where we have available data, we also which roads you should take to see particular animals.

Major South African Parks

The maps are available for all the main SA game viewing parks and we are always adding more.

No phone network required

The maps work with no phone network (reception is patchy in most parks) but sychronise sightings when you're online.

No roaming charges

Because the maps are totally offline, you don't pay roaming charges for using them.

Book the night game drive when you can see the lesser-known nocturnal animals and maybe catch a glimpse of the elusive leopard. There’s a good chance that you’ll see the hippos at the marshes by the river Hluhluwe and lake St.Lucia. Snack and refreshment breaks are part of all the activities at Bonamanzi and there is nothing quite as pleasant as watching the sun set over Lake St Lucia with gin and tonic in one hand, biltong, cheese and biscuits in the other., +27 (0) 035 5620 181 (06:00 - 19:00),
