Your group is on a safari in Africa surrounded by animals- you’ve got to clear an escape path to make it back safely to your camp by nightfall. The object of this game is to move your Safari Rover through the exit gate by shifting the animals out of the way.

How you play:

Each team is given an over-head photo which maps out the positions of the character game pieces.

Note: Only one participant can occupy a square at a time; however they must stay connected to the other individuals that make up their character.

The map determines which characters are used in a game, a list of potential character game pieces are as follows;  three Elephants (one elephant takes up three squares) , two Rhinos (one Rhino takes three squares) , four herds of Impalas (one herd of Impala takes up two squares), two Lions (one Lion takes up two squares), three Lionesses (one Lioness takes up two squares), two Zebras (one Zebra takes up two squares), two Terminate Mounds (one TM takes up two squares) and one Safari Vehicle (one SV takes up two squares).

Movements:

All pieces can move forward and backwards except three pieces. The two termite mounts and the safari vehicle can travel up, down, right and left.

Set Up

You will need to create a 7 square by 7 square grid to play on, in which only one participant can occupy a block at a time.  Each participant must stay connected at all times to the other individuals that make up their character game piece. The grid map attached tells you which game pieces will be used and how many participants make up a particular game piece.

Example: an Elephant is made up of three people, a Safari vehicle is made up of three etc.
