Griffin Guide apps for iPhone and Android

We love African cities, and we want you to love them too. To make it easier to find everything you need to know, we created a series of apps for iPhone and Android that contain our resident experts’ top picks for each city.

The Nuts & Bolts page gives your the low-down on how to get around, stay safe, and figure out the city.

In Essentials, we spell out exactly what you should do if you’re short on time.

Savouring gives a few great picks for breakfast, lunch, dinner or just coffee.

Shopping helps you find interesting places to find unique gifts and souvenirs, stuff you won’t get in the airport.

Staying offers choices for great accommodation from intimate guesthouses to posh hotels.

Our Cool places are fascinating landmarks and museums, great venues for theatre or concerts, or just unusual things we think you’ll enjoy.

  • Cape Town
  • Durban
  • Johannesburg
  • Maputo
  • Lagos
  • Nairobi
  • Port Louis
  • Pretoria
