Gappie is our travel app. Use it to quickly plan not only your trip to the Big 5 but also to any address in Amsterdam or throughout the Netherlands. You can also directly purchase your public transport ticket in the app for immediate travel.
You'll find several Big 5 destinations in the app. Plan your trip to them by swiping from your current location using the handy Touch Swipe Planner. 

In the app, you can easily purchase your public transport ticket in advance and activate it shortly before you board the tram, bus or metro.

The app is therefore an excellent start to your Big 5 safari!
