An African Photo Safari Game Review

Today I would like to tell you about a wonderful game that has been designed and handmade by Beccijo from The Enchanted Cupboard. It is called the African Photo Safari Game. This really is the sweetest game and I love it especially because it is representative of many of our African animals, (as we live in South Africa 🙂

The game itself does not need a board to be played and therefore can be played anywhere really, wonderfully portable and can be taken along on holiday or anywhere for that matter as it all packs up into a neat little calico drawstring bag. As you can see, the circular wooden discs with inner circles are placed into an oval arrangement interspersed with rectangular wooden pieces with animal (spoor) footprints on them.

The aim of the game is for the two explorers standing on the large disk at the far end in the above photo to move around this circuit collecting the footprint discs and animals that they belong to. You can only collect these discs if you land on the footprint with the throw of a die that takes you there. Then, a colourful die is thrown to let you know which colour footprint disc you can pick up. Very exciting indeed!

Caiden and Kye LOVE this game, they play it often, each eagerly trying to collect as many of the prized disks as possible and finish first!

Each player has a card with the animals and their matching (spoor) footprints on it. When you have collected all the disks for your card you are the winner!

I am really so impressed with this game and thrilled that it has found a place within our home. There are even instructions for a more difficult version for older children (or adults), where the colourful discs are face down, the game becomes a memory game as each player tries to remember where the pieces are within the oval of wooden discs. This game is great for counting, hand-eye coordination and memory recall and of course also learing to recognise which footprints belong to each animal.

The African Photo Safari Game can be found in Beccijo’s shop.

    Lovely. And I love the fact that you learn about the tracks. I love tracks and fancy that some day I’ll be able to read them and learn great secrets about the world I do not see. Games – they keep us together, and we learn so much from every aspect of playing together.
