Jambo! Safari (ジャンボサファリ) is a driving adventure game developed by AM2/AM3 and published by Sega for the Sega NAOMI arcade system in 1999.

Although Jambo! Safari was released on the Dreamcast-based NAOMI hardware, it was never released for the Dreamcast itself. The Official Dreamcast Magazine (UK) reported that it would be released as part of a compilation with Brave Firefighters and Emergency Call Ambulance, but no such compilation materialised.

Gameplay

In Jambo! Safari, players take the role of a park ranger studying wildlife. In order to research animals, the player must drive a jeep through the serengeti and capture several different species of animals by using the gear shift lever to launch a lasso. When an animal is lassoed, the player must carefully "reel in" the animal, being careful not to break the rope.

History

Legacy

An updated version of the game was brought to the Wii and Nintendo DS ten years later by Full Fat Productions as Jambo! Safari: Animal Rescue.
