App Store Description

This app allows visitors to identify 66 mammals and 105 birds, which a "normal tourist" would be most likely to see. Once you have identified the animal you have spotted, press a button to list it with date and time of observation, a feature that will help you later when you come to sort your photos once home.

The search menu also provides the exact name in English along with the family name; although by "family name", we don't mean "family" in the scientific sense, but rather information about the class (sub­ family, genus or species) to which the animal belongs. You can visually search using the icon on the screen as well as using the keyboard.


Mammals

The app lists mammals you might see during the day on safari. The app also lists two nocturnal mammals, as you might occasionally spot them on night safaris: genets and galagos, also known as "bush-babies".

The following search filters are available to you:

• Size
• Plantigrade or ungulate


Birds

Many more than 2'000 different species of bird live south of the Sahara. Some remain in their habitats, while others are migratory birds that over­winter in Africa during the European winter.
Sometimes the differences in appearance and body shape are minimal, for instance as is the case with the sand grouse, woodpecker, ibis etc. However, thanks to the family name in the search menu, you'll at least be able to identify to which order the bird belongs.

The following search filters are available to you:

• Colour of plumage
• Size, divided into 
30, 30­/70, 70 cm, in feet/inches: 11'', 11''/2'3'', 2'3''.
• Beak length in relation to body length: short/medium/long
• Observing location: in and 
on water, on the ground or above ground (e.g. tree, shrub etc.)

And now get going and experience the magnificence of the African countryside.
