Product Description

Product Description

Zebras, Lions, and Rhinos, Oh My! Feel the rumble of the herd in this exciting safari adventure! Set up the game grid according to the challenge card, then maneuver your Escape Rover through a safari of wild animals. Rush Hour fans will love the new challenge of the larger 7 x 7 game grid and the Escape Rover that moves in all directions! Ages: 8 to adult Players: single player

Amazon.com

This is a strategy game with a twist--if you lose, you're lunch. You've taken your trusty Safari Rover deep into the bush; now maneuver it through the maze of hungry animals and get back to camp in one piece. An 8-by-7.25-inch plastic game tray forms a kind of grid for your vehicle and the 3-D plastic animal pieces (including elephants, rhinos, and a termite mound). Draw one of 50 cards (10 of which are extra-easy, for younger players) to determine the initial board setup. Then move pieces, according to strict rules, to make your escape through the only exit. A cloth bag for all the game pieces is included. --Richard Farr

I own several rush hour games and enjoy them a great deal. I've completed all of the car rush hour games(1-3)and was waiting for a similiar type game for my 5 year old. The new safari theme helps my child to relate to the rush hour concept and I have actually found the safari expert level more challenging than the original(car) rush hour versions. The heavy-duty storage sack is also a great evolution from the original rush hour packaging as there is no need to try and cram all the pieces in a box. This is a great product from a great company and I would recommend it highly.

First their was cars in the Rush Hour series, then there was trains in Railroad Rush Hour, then boats in Stormy Seas and if that's not enough Binary Arts and gone and taken you on a ride through the jungle with Safari Rush Hour.
As with most other "Rush Hour" games you have 40 cards from beginner to expert, also included is 10 junior cards, this way everyone can play. You mission is to get you land rover out of the jungle and to safety, and this is no easy task believe me.
Dodging elephants, lions, rhinos, impalas, zebras and wild dogs is hard enough, but watch out for the dreaded termite mounds. This is a great game for those rainy days and the storage is easy with a handy travel bag, yes you can take it on the road if you choose.
Binary Arts has given you the perfect family night or friends over party game. This one will have you playing together and having fun for hours. Binary Arts has a plethora of other games and they can be viewed at their website. Another outstanding game from the first name in puzzles.

My 7-year-old daughter loves this activity. There are so many active toys available, but Binary Toys has the best strategic-play games around. We play together often with this toy; I find it as much fun as she does. But, she would just as soon sit at the kitchen counter playing it by herself. We take it on trips, and all the relatives enjoy it, too. Since the "solution" shown on the back of each card is straightforward to follow for an adult but not for a child, she is never tempted to turn the card over and "cheat." Instead, through trial and error, she eventually escapes the safari and moves to the next card. Having the wide range of skill level cards helps keep everyone interested. Having the handy cloth case for storage is appreciated as well.

I knew this game at a friend's house and love it even I was 30 already at that time. I bought several when I went back to visit my family and they all love it. When I told my mom that I would give my brother's 1st grad boy a set, she told me he won't like it since he doesn't like the brain games. But he loves it soon after my sister explain to him the rules and he enjoys to do it. My little one, almost 23 months old now, likes those animals and loves to put all of those animals to the board one by one and kind of learn the size and arrange the place. It's not only for 8 and up.

I bought this for my 6 year old. She played with it for an hour the first time. It is a game she can play solo. After using the Junior cards, she went on to the beginner. She is still progressing. This is a great thinking game. I highly recommend it.

Our family truly enjoys the Rush Hour game and tried this one as well - it is bigger and bulkly and convenient for travel. I alos find the puzzles to be a bit easier. The pieces don't slide as well as Rush Hour.

I got this for my child and I see everyone picking this up to play with it. The concept is simple, move the pieces around until you can slide the car out. I like this game because it comes with a bag that you can put the board, pieces and cards in. Very convenient.

If you have ever played Rush Hour or Parking Lot on the iPhone or iPad, then you are familiar with the premises of Safari. The game is a challenge of spatial manipulation, to get a safari rover to an exit around animals that block its path.

The game comes with 40 challenges of increasing difficulty. It comes with a sturdy 7 in x 7 in grid, 2 lions, 3 lionesses, 3 elephants, 2 zebras, 2 rhinos, 4 herds of impalas, 2 termite mounds with wild dogs, and a cloth sac to carry everything in.

Like the cars in Rush Hour, the animals can only move forward and reverse. They were less colorful than I expected, but are still attractive.

You might ask, in this age of 99-cent or free iPhone apps, why should I still buy a plastic game? I would have no hesitation buying this game today. First, I hate the fact that kids' eyes are constrained to a tiny screen for a long period of time. Second, we are tactile creatures, and touching the pieces may be more conducive to thinking spatially, for little ones that cannot think in abstract terms. Third, the smart phones offer too many other distractions. I hate the idea of playing something with the distraction of hundreds of other apps vying for attention.

The challenges are very reasonable. We played slowly and finished the challenges in several days. Answers are provided. I would consider it a good birthday present for someone ages 6-9.
