While the game isn't the same as riding in a jeep with a guide, marveling at the wonders of the Serengeti, it does create an interactive nature simulation that is very compelling. Instead of watching an elephant charge you and wondering if you will survive, you can experience that adrenaline rush from the safety of your sofa.
The game puts you in charge of your exploration around the Serengeti. Using the Wii Remote and the Wii Nunchuk controller, it's easy to point and then use the control stick to move. You can travel at a pretty good clip, as if you were sitting in a jeep. One assignment even puts you inside a helicopter flying over the Ngorongoro Crater to film animals in migration.
