Safarimappers was registered in 2006 to meet the demand for
clear simple maps of safari destinations. We rely on a wide variety of sources
for our information. These include Africa travel specialists, safari tour
operators, journalists, game ranges, friends and the wider internet community.
Where possible we have tried to get independent sources for the coordinates
of safari lodges and other points of interest. We have also logged a lot of
coordinates ourselves while travelling to these destinations. However, when
booking your safari, you should verify these locations with your tour operator
of the safari lodge.
We welcome comment and criticism. We are especially interested in getting
your independent review of a lodge or camp. Any personal photographs of the
lodges would also be highly appreciated. We have a number of years experience in
Africa travel and tourism and a criticism we often hear is that the brochure
photographs do not give a realistic impression of the safari destination. Send
these to us and we will publish them for our user community. If you give us
sufficient information, we will give you your own Safarimappers page!
Safarimappers is a joint effort by a number of individuals, based in Cape
Town, London and Dublin.
