-Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 1

Introduction:


Welcome to the Road Map, that will guarantee you 1000 GS in Cabela's African Safari.

As always, this thread will layout an order in which you will get achievements, as well as advise you on tips/tricks and anything else noteworthy. I suggest you read the whole thing before beginning.

There are 30 achievements for this game and you only need to play through this game once. No collectibles either, which makes this sub-par game even shorter.

Put the disc in and off we go...

Step 1: Playthrough

Once you start up the game, choose Safari Hunt then Expert Mode, this means you only need to play through this game once.

Expert Mode is difficult, as there is no map. You know when are you are nearby game and objectives, as the 3 red rings around you gun reticule will slowly become red.

To make Expert Mode much easier, if you are getting attacked by an animal shoot it in adrenaline mode (LB) so you don't get penalized. This makes the "Ambient Guardian" achievement a walk in the park.

You can play the game twice, once on a lower difficulty and then again on Expert for the trophy animal achievements...but it is much easier and less tedious to just play through the game once on Expert Mode.

Start with the Tutorial by hitting Y at the main menu. Complete it to earn the first achievement.

Then after the tutorial, simply play through the game and you will earn the following achievements, probably in this order:

  • First Blood
  • .44 Custom Handgun Unlocked
  • 12 Ga Custom Shotgun Unlocked
  • .410 O&U Custom Shotgun Unlocked
  • .300 Custom Firearm Unlocked
  • All Game Modes Unlocked
  • Black Rhino Expert Trophy
  • .505 Custom Firearm Unlocked
  • .243 Custom Firearm Unlocked
  • .416 Custom Firearm Unlocked
  • Leopard Expert Trophy
  • Elephant Expert Trophy
  • Cape Buffalo Expert Trophy
  • Lion Expert Trophy
  • Hippo Expert Trophy
  • Crocodile Expert Trophy

Although you will probably have more than the above achievements after your playthrough, the above are what you should have at a minimum at this point. If you have more then good on you.

Now lets grab the rest of the achievements:
  • Turtle Dove Perfect Wing
  • Egyptian Goose Perfect Wing
  • Spur Winged Goose Perfect Wing
  • Red Billed Teal Perfect Wing
  • Yellow Billed Duck Perfect Wing
  • Rock Pigeon Perfect Wing
These ones need to be gained during Safari Hunt mode. As you go through this mode, you will get these bird shooting missions. You only get 1 mission for each type of bird. This achievement will not unlock on the boat missions where you shoot birds, you need to be on land for this achievement to pop.

Just keep retrying the missions of you fail them, and eventually the Perfect Wing achievements should unlock. They are really not that hard, I unlocked them all on my first go.

  • Ambient Guardian
You should this when you kill the Crocodile for the Crocodile Expert Trophy and complete the game. Use the tip I give at the top of this post and make sure you do not move on to a new mission if you are penalized.

"To make Expert Mode much easier, if you are getting attacked by an animal shoot it in adrenaline mode (LB) so you don't get penalized. This makes the "Ambient Guardian" achievement a walk in the park."

Step 2: Mop Up

Now for the other achievements, that you need to do an extra bit of work to gain:

  • Fast and Perfect
  • Hunter Super Sense
The easiest way for these achievements is to choose:

Open Safari > South Africa > Hunt 4 Springboks near the Karoo Plateau!

Turn around and there will be a herd of Springboks running towards you. Hit RB and take down 2 of them. Easy achievements!

  • Super Long Shot
For this one, go to:

Open Safari > Zimbabwe > Hunt 5 Springboks along the Zambezi River!

As soon as you start, take the shot. They will be crossing your path. Keep retrying until you get it.

  • Super Adrenaline
On any Trophy Hunt, just use Adrenaline (LB) to kill the trophy. I did this on the Leopard Trophy. Simple as that.

  • Dangerous Seven
  • Wing Shooting Tournament
These 2 will probably be the last ones you do. The first one requires you to go through and complete Dangerous Seven mode from the main menu. Just remember where the trophy animals are and this will be easy. You could even do the Dangerous Seven Hunt for X animal if you have just killed X animal and unlocked it in Dangerous Seven mode.

For Wing Shooting Tournament, you need to be quick on the trigger and score 40,000 Points in Wing Shooting Mode by bringing down birds. Look for bushes, where birds spawn and this should be fairly easy.


You should now have 1000 GS in Cabela's African Safari, congratulations!
All feedback is welcome.

I am a little bit confused.

You say play through the game to get the first large chunk of achievements, doesnt that mean Safari Hunt???

But then you say play safari hunt mode to unlock the 5 'Winged' Achievements. Yet there is 6 winged achievements, how do you unlock the Rock Pidgeon Achievement??

I am just wondering because I am up to Mozambik but only have the Leopard, Rhino, Buffalo, and Elephant Trophy achievements. As far as I can tell the Lion Trophy achievement finishes in Mozambik. But what of the two remaining trophies, how do I unlock the Hippo and Crocodile Trophy achievments???

Help would be greatly appreciated

I mean Safari Hunt, I do say that in the road map.

All 6 winged achievements are gained in Safari Hunt too, don't know where I say 5...

The Hippo and Crocodile Trophy are both in the same level, the final one.

Updated the guide to modernise it and make it similar to the new road map layout.

Enjoy!

I would recommend against playing the game on Expert your first time through as you'll likely have a VERY hard time playing the game when you're unfamiliar with it and have no map. Use Easy mode to prepare you for the challenge of Expert.

One VERY useful tip I stumbled upon, was that you can switch guns quickly with the Y button when you are in hot pursuit of an animal and you run out of ammo and have to reload. Just switch to a gun that still has ammo and keep blasting to stop them from getting away. I also used this method on wing hunt missions and finished one in 6 seconds!

I found Expert pretty easy once you get the hang of it, again this is only a road map showing you the fastest and most efficient way to get all the achievements.

Some may prefer to play through the game twice, once on Easy.

Expert Mode wasn't entirely too bad, of course, aside from the small animal missions everyone has lots of trouble with (Roan, Duiker, Dik-Dik, Klipspringers, etc). I likely would have had a much harder time though had I not played through Easy Mode first. I applaud those that actually played through Expert on their first attempt!

BTW, thanks for the guide. I am always appreciative of people's efforts in making them for the benefit of others!

Thanks for the help

I always love the help you get on these. You helped me get a very quick 50 points, 3 achievements I just couldn't figure out the best way. Adrenaline, long shot and heartbeat mode. Great job.

Great guide. Expert isn't hard at all. Not a bad way to get a quick 1000 points.

Thanks for the road map and guide! Came in very handy! The game wasn't bad, but I'm glad that I followed your tip, and only had to play through it once, on expert mode. Wouldn't really have wanted to play it again, since the dangerous 7 had to be hunted twice already...
