National Park looks to ban animal apps

"Mobile apps that share information about animal sightings have become ""a major cause for concern"", according to the authority that runs national parks in South Africa. Their use had led to a rise in lawlessness in parks, including speeding, congestion and animal deaths, said South African National Parks. It had been inundated with complaints from customers about the use of such apps, it said. It is now considering banning them. ""As an organisation, we appreciate the fact that technology has evolved and that guests are taking advantage of it,"" said SAN Parks managing executive of marketing Hapiloe Sello. ""However, this is compromising the values of good game viewing in national parks. ""Most guests appreciate the leisurely drive through the parks and the potential reward of a good sighting as a key element of the visitor experience."
