There’s a new app in town to help travelers easily get around and enjoy the best sites in Namibia.
FNB Namibia recently launched the new app called the Namibia Pocket Guide at this year’s guide at this year’s tourism expo in Windhoek.
The app allows travelers to locate dozens of places to see by GPS coordinates, find cool restaurants, and discover the best hotel deals in the area.
You can also find camping sites and trails if you are more of an outdoor enthusiast, which is handy, considering most people going to Namibia want to get out into nature.
Another cool feature of the app lets you see recent wildlife sightings that other people have posted, along with the animal’s location on a map.
Unfortunately, not many people have downloaded the app and posted so far, but if the app takes off it will be great to interact in real time.
Some of the deals that are currently available also need updating and are not valid at the moment.
In the meantime, we will keep an eye on the app to see if some of the features get fully fleshed out.
The Namibia Pocket Guide was initially developed for use by participants at the Adventure Travel World Summit in 2013 to rate their experiences as they traveled through the country.
However, that trial was so successful that the app went through major feature updates and is now available to use for tourists.
The app is available for download for Android devices on Google Play and a launch for Apple iOS will come in the next few weeks.
