Did you know that you can get the Africa Geographic for free?

Have a look here, register, and download the package.

It's quite different to the paper version:
Quote:
Your stand-alone application packed with great stories, live video and sound action, superb photographic slide shows, animated graphics and much more.

* Interactive navigation of articles
* Embedded video and audio.
* Slideshows & interactive book previews.

The current version (2) starts with the sounds of ellies rumbling, and has the Secret 7 in them as well. With little nice facts, like did you know that the word Pangolin comes from Pengguling, a Malay word meaning "something that rolls up"?

The downloads so far have been around 35 MB, and well worth it, available for Windows and Mac.
