Product Description

Product Description

SimSafari lets you develop a balanced ecosystem by creating a park filled with diverse African plants and animals. Team up with a neighboring village and build a flourishing safari camp. You can place selected animals and plants in your park, as well as modify the terrain with a bulldozer and water tools. But remember, adding water costs money. And keep in mind that animals need food, so make sure grass-eating animals have grasses and shrubs. Carnivores will require other animals to eat for food. It's your job to make sure the delicate balance of nature is maintained.

I really enjoy playing Sim Safari. While it's not an action game, it's relaxing to play.
The graphics are pretty nice ,and you actually learn a lot about predator-prey relationships and animal species.
Your mission: a successful safari park and camp. You design your own safari park and put animals, plants, rives, lakes, etc. in it. You also build an attractive camp for the villagers to stay in. Be sure to put in lots of attractions in so you'll have tourists filling it up. You'll also be doing a poor village a favor by hiring the needed amount of villagers to work in your camp. It's really a challenge to make sure that you balance the predator-prey relationships, put in enough plants to both feed herbivores and supply insects for insect-eaters, and be very successful. I currently have a very successful camp and 5-star safari park, so, no, it's not impossible to do. ^^
The missions are fun too and are quite a challenge. This game is worth every penny! I really recommend that you get this game! It's very relaxing and addicting.

I got this game years ago and I still play it sometimes, which is saying a lot! The graphics are fantastic. The sound is great. Gameplay is relatively easy, but you can change settings and add disasters to make it more challenging. When it comes to keeping the campgrounds and the village in check, it is always easy. The safari itself is harder to manage because it's easy for the food web to get out of whack. Things seem to be going great until you notice that your elephants have killed like all of your trees and that one corner of your park is overrun by tons of monitor lizards or something. The game is also fun to watch. You can see the animals eating, chasing each other, and getting into herds. It's one of the best old sim games. It's cheap and its a fun diversion, so if you can get your hands on it, do!

By A Customer on May 20, 2002
This game is cute--the graphics are good (better than some Sim games I've played--plenty of nifty animals with nice animated pictures in the information windows) and it's not too challenging. Young gamers will no doubt enjoy it immensely, though I found myself wishing there wasn't so much clicking involved in the statistics interface and that my three "advisors" had something more intelligent to say. It also would've been nice if my jeeps had stuck to those nice dirt roads I dug for them instead of getting marooned in the grass (hmm...no word from my ecologist on how many tourists devoured by lions...) The 4 missions are decently challenging, but more tasks would've made this a better game. Overall, not bad for a sim, but too simple.

This game is fun in setting everything up first. The camp is the most difficult because you have to watch where you place the roads because you have to place the camp trails and the housing too. My suggestion is to place the road going all the way around the edges, then come down the middle.
Anyway, the biggest problem is the staff. If you hire to many, you may end up having to fire some and then they get angry and won't come back to work for you anymore, but then your camp suffers because you don't have enough employees. When you take time away from the animal park to fix these problems, your animal pop. diminishes and you loose safari guests.
My biggest question is where does the game end? I have gotten up to 5 stars several times, but when the animal pop. isn't diverse enough, it drops to 4 stars, then 3 then back up to 4. It never locks in like the other games, ex. Sim Tower. You just toggle back and forth between stars. So, when do you win? HOW do you win? That is the only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. But watching the animals walk around and having so many to choose from is fantastic, and the camp is great to watch the little sims walk around and in and out of their houses.

A Kid's Review on April 27, 2003
I recieved Sim Safari in a Pack. I really enjoyed it! I loved making the camp. I love animals, so this game rocks! If you love animals and Sim games this is definetly a game for you! One reviewer said it is boring, well....... they were wrong.It is fun! I like to make sure my guests are as comfortable as possible. The only thing I DISLIKE is that you run out of money too quick. DEFINETLY BUY THIS GAME!!!!

This game has a simple plot, build a safari resort/lodge capable of bringing in money galore for the village it's next to, make a profit for yourself, and support the vast rolling plains with the diverse animals and plant-life. You make money by building and buying items for the resort, then transoprt the toursits, via trucks you bought, through the savanna to see the vast herds. They then go and spread the safari's pros and cons by word of mouth to their friends who come and so forth. The more amenities you have, the more people you bring in. This game is good for small children in that it poses questions to them regarding actual problems in the rolling plains and the naimal life of Africa. I would especially reccommend it for teachers and the like in that it can be used easily for children since it truly is "fun and educational". It is difficult to balance a profit with bringing in and balancing your ecosphere while keeping the village happy. But that makes it all the more fun. The only reason it gets four stars and not five is that it is too childish. I, being sixteen, feel that I am above such childish programs, but even I have to admit that it is fun. If you're a teacher, tell them it's educational, if you;re a parent, tell them it's fun. Either way, you're telling the truth. This game is one that you definately should buy.
