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."

 

If at any point you struggle with finding the trophys, or just have no idea where to go, refer to this walkthrough right HERE.

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!

Safari Hunter Learning10
Complete all the tutorial lessons. 

Simple complete the tutorial. On the main menu just press  to enter it. Must be done in one sitting or you'll have to redo it.

First Blood10
Hunt your first game animal in the Safari Hunt Mode. 

You'll get it when you kill your first game animal. Pretty self explanatory.

Hunter Super Sense15
Take two game kills in the same use of Hunter Sense ability, except in Wing and Herd missions. (1) 

To get this one you must kill two game animals in one use of your Hunter Sense. I got mine on the first Zebra hunt when two were close together. If you get a perfect shot your sense will end. Also it cannot be gotten on wing or herd mission.

Super Adrenaline15
Complete a mission using only Adrenaline Mode to hunt. 

This one is easier to get than it may sound. Simply wait til your first trophy mission and kill your trophy with you Adrenaline Mode on.

Fast and Perfect20
Take a perfect shot in less than 1 minute of playing. 

Another one that sounds harder than it really is. The best way I found to get this one is on the "Hunt 4 Springboks" hunt in South Africa. Simple turn around at the start, turn on your Hunter Sense, and fire at the closest one. If you don't get the achievement you can always restart the map and try again.

Super Long Shot20
Take a Trophy from over 150 yards. (1) 

This one is best done in South Africa. Simply find a game animal and zoom in, backing up until you are 150 yards away from it. Be sure to kill it in one shot or it may run closer to you preventing you from getting the achievement.

All Game Modes Unlocked20
Unlock all game modes from the Main Menu. 

You'll get this one once you complete South Africa.

p align="justify">You'll unlock the guns by earning points in your hunts. A few tips are wounding your game then following right behind it earning 100 points for every good tracking you get. Another tip is on Herd missions aim for the top trophy animals as those will net you 1000 points each (the trophy animals are bigger and darker than normal ones). You should get all of these before finishing the game.

Crocodile Expert Trophy45
Take down the Crocodile Trophy in Safari Hunt on Expert Mode. 

Just hunt the trophy mission animals on the expert difficulty. The biggest problem you will have with expert is that you cannot use your radar. You can only tell your near a game animal if the three circular lines around your reticule start turning red that means your near a game animal. If you lines start flashing that means the animal has "seen" you and is running away.

Ambient Guardian45
Finish the Safari Hunt without being penalized. 

To get this one you simply have to complete the Safari Hunt without getting any penalties. You get penalties if you kill an animal you are not suppose to be hunting. If you happen to get a penalty just restart the map and try again.

Wing Shooting Tournament40
Earn 40,000 points or more in the Wing Shooting Tournament. 

You need to earn 40,000 points in the mode to earn this achievement. It's not that hard to get. If you run out of bullets just switch to a different one and keep going. You'll get the achievement right when you reach 40,000 points.
