Safari Tales | KENYA

 

Safari Tales is a children’s educational android mobile app for learning African languages, traditional tales and indigenous knowledge. Societies on the African continent are largely oral and the app fills the gap between older generations and young digital natives. Safari Tales is inspired by rich African cultures and brings African tales, poems, tongue twisters and songs in African languages (for now Kiswahili) to kids between 2 and 9 years. They can listen to the stories and read them in tandem using the built-in dictionary. The app and some basic content are free, while further content can be bought.
