The magazine that celebrates the natural wonders of Africa.
Africa Geographic is a wildlife magazine that showcases the animals, people and landscapes that make Africa so special. We communicate with readers, blog fans, twitter followers and Facebook devotees from all over the world, from our native South Africa (where the magazine is published) to Europe, the US and Asia – diverse people with diverse views, but all connected through a shared passion for Africa.
Every month, the magazine offers spectacular photography, inspiring articles and insightful interviews. We’re not afraid to confront the difficult issues (and there are enough of them), but there is also much to celebrate – Africa has some of the biggest, fluffiest, cutest, cuddliest, ugliest and scariest animals on the planet, and there are some incredible people doing incredible things to ensure that we will share our future with them.
The rich multimedia content makes the app 80-150MB in size. We recommend downloading over a Wi-Fi connection.
You may try out your first issue issue of the Africa Geographic magazine iPad edition for free. The Africa Geographic magazine iPad edition is also available as a single-issue purchase at $3.99/£2.49. You can also subscribe or an auto-renewable subscription as follows:

This is most likely a browser problem. Sometimes our pages don't play nicely with older browsers. We suggest using Google Chrome, Firefox or Safari to view our work.
It also may simply be that you have a page zoom function on. Very often we’ve discovered (even internally) that the page zoom has been accidently enabled, and this causes all sorts of display issues. Pressing Ctrl and 0 (zero) resets it back to normal, while Ctrl + or – zooms in or out (Ctrl for PC, Cmd on Mac). If this doesn't help, please help us out by sending us your browser details. The easiest way to do this is to simply visit http://africageo.com/browserdetails and follow the on-screen directions to send us those details.
There are 3 digital expressions of the Africa Geographic brand, the explanations of which will help in the understanding of the billing options.
Z-mags print replica: If you subscribe to the print version of our magazine you will receive the Z-mags digital format free of charge. Please visit http://africageo.com/digital for more details on that.
iPad edition: The iPad edition of Africa Geographic print magazine is a paid-for edition as we lack the ability at the moment to pass our subscriber information onto Apple's billing systems.
Safari interactive: This is a separate digital-only publication in the AG stable, focused on Africa-related travel and culture. It has a free online option, as well as a paid iPad edition. It has no crossover to the print magazine subscriptions systems either.
We’re having problems with the in-app purchasing for Android so it’s not really available for public release. You can try download the free reader app and then the free launch issue here: http://africageo.com/safariandroid
The subscription only kicks in after the release of the next issue after purchasing a subscription. In other words, when we publish the next issue of Safari, it should say "Download not Purchase."
Are you in China? We’ve tracked down the error message and it seems that the content for the magazines is being blocked in China.
We use an Adobe digital publishing product called DPS, which packages our magazine. Every new issue is then fetched from their servers.
It seems that this content delivery is being blocked from in China:
"Adobe does not have a license to distribute content to mainland China. We are working on resolving this through several possible methods. Until we can legally distribute content into mainland China apps can be downloaded from the app stores but content delivery will not work."
You'd have to contact Apple directly for this. We found this link, which may be helpful - http://africageo.com/istore-refund - but we'd also like to hear from you anyway if you're not happy with something. You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want.
Apple take up to a week to approve a new issue for the iPad, and we'd rather not hold back publishing to the rest of the web option.
We can, no problem (email us). But you can also manage this by scrolling to the bottom of newsletters you receive from us and click the link relating to Change my Subscription details or Update my details.
You may be viewing the email using an iPad, and so when visiting the Safari interactive website, it detects this and redirects you to our app page, as we can't display our online content on the iPad because of Flash.
If you are already an iPad edition subscriber, the update to your Newsstand version will show up when Apple approves it, normally about a week after our newsletters go out.
