SimSafari is such an incredible game. I enjoy playing it very much. In the game you are to manage a Safari Park. In game play you can view 3 maps.
The first is of a local village where you can hire natives to work in the park. You must also talk to the native chief and keep him and his people happy. There is little else to do on this world map.
The second area is the guest area. This is where you set up the resort part of your park.
You can build hotels, cabins, and tents. There are various other buildings available such as bathrooms, pools, Jacuzzis, theaters, and other tourist things. Additionally you can build watch towers and buy jeeps and or tour buses. The guests enjoy both of these items. I will get back to the tour vehicles. On top of man made items you can plant trees and shrubs (but you get instant gratification as they are planted fully grown). Just like when on the Village view you must talk to the Resort director to make sure you are pleasing the guests and they are enjoying there stay.
The third and final world view is that of the actual animal reserve. On this
view you can see what is going on in this part of your park. In this area you are allowed to lay down roads for the tour cars to drive on. Make sure they pass good areas. You can create water features, along with plant trees, and shrubs. Then there is the most important thing, animals. This is the screen where you can purchase animals for your reserve. There are all the African favorites: zebras, lions, giraffes, crocodiles, hyenas, rhinos, and gazelles. Then there are many other animals which include birds, snakes, lizards, big mammals, and rodents. On this screen there is also an employee you must deal with. Here it is the conservationist. He tells you how the animals are faring, what there status is, how to improve the habitat for the animals, and what your visitors would like to see. The conservationist also tells you what an animal eats, what eats it, and other fun facts about each animal.
This is the mainly all you need to know about playing the game. On top of free play there a few scenarios you can play. Each has a different challenge and is just as fun as free play. These scenarios are an exciting challenge for any player.
