Product Description

The game Auf Fotosafari in Ombagassa shows everyone who comes to Ombagassa in order to observe animals how not to behave on Safari. The game probably developed in the evening around campfires, when beginners bragged about their many animal sightings -- and even wanted to have seen camels!

Different animals move from watering hole to watering hole. The various combinations of elephants, hippos, giraffes and camels are represented on the animal cards, of which each player has a certain number. You try to drive your car to spaces to be able to watch watering holes. For each watering hole there are two such viewing spaces. If you see a group of animals for which you have the corresponding card, you may discard the card as a "taken photo". In addition, everyone is represented in two other cars, which sometimes give you the opportunity to get rid of additional cards. Whoever takes all his required photos first (i.e. discards all his cards), wins.
