  1. Jambo Safari is a game aimed at children and it does show, I played it and to be honest didn’t really find much to keep me entertained, however my little daughter seemed to have great fun driving the jeep around and looking at the animals and given the games target audience it seems that it’s done its job.
  2. For all its flaws, terrible graphics and Wii friendly gameplay mechanics, Jambo! Safari is still an extremely enjoyable experience.
  3. A bit sloppy, but a fun game for safari-obsessed youngsters and arcade enthusiasts. [Jan 2010, p.74]
  4. 55
    A forgettable safari experience due to its dull and unchallenging gameplay. Unless you’re looking at getting this for your child then there’s nothing that will hold your interest for long.
  5. Poor decisions in the wardrobe department, tedious animal treatment sections, useless "party games" and bad QA take a lot away from what could have been a pretty fun game to play with your kids.
  6. Not the fast action arcade game you might remember, but a low budget animal-fancying sim for girls.
  7. Jambo! Safari might have some merit as an educational tool(the animal facts you unlock are interesting), but as a game, not so much. [Jan 2010, p.89]
