how it works

Safari Central uses augmented reality technology to bring animals to life.
To activate the animals, follow these 3 simple steps. 

Step 1


Download the app through the App Store or Google Play, open the app on your phone or tablet and choose an animal.


Step 2

You need a 'target' to activate the AR animal. You can use one of the following banknotes:

• 1 US Dollar
• 5 Euros
• 5 British Pounds
• 1 Canadian Dollar
• 1 Australian Dollar
• 100 Indian Rupees
• 10 Brazilian Reals
• 100 Kenyan Shillings
• 100 Hong Kong Dollars
• 100000 Vietnamese Dong
• 100 South African Rand
• 1000 Indonesian Rupiahs
• 10 Swiss Francs

Is your currency not listed? Scan the Safari Central logo or one of our partner logos. Find the markers in this PDF

Lay the banknote or logo flat on a surface, like a table or your flat outstretched hand, to scan it. Hold your phone over the target as if you are taking a photo of it straight from above. 

Step 3


Move the animal around by pointing at a location on the screen, take a photo or use the selfie mode.

You get five photos per animal for free. Do you want to take more photos? Click the button 'shop' in the bottom right corner. Your in-app purchases go directly to the conservation of the animals in the game!
