All About Namola

A brief overview of Namola and the differences between Namola and Namola Plus.

Namola is a mobile safety app that keeps you and your loved ones safe and connected and gets you and your family the best emergency assistance when is needed.


Know that your loved ones are safe at all times by helping them share their location with you. Press the SOS button for yourself or on behalf of a loved one when you need help or it looks like a loved one is in trouble.


Namola is available as a free app where users can request assistance from public emergency services, such as the South African Police Services (SAPS), Metro Police, Fire & Rescue, and Ambulance, as well as from community responders working through community safety initiatives. Namola now also offers Namola Plus, where our users still get the same Namola experience as always, but now with the added benefits of Armed Response and Private Emergency Medical Services (EMS) from just R49 per month. 


Download the app from your app store or by visiting this link from your smartphone. 


You can upgrade to Namola Plus or purchase one of our standalone GPS enabled Panic Trackers in-app or by visiting this link from your smartphone.
