What is the difference between Jungle and Safari?
The difference between a jungle and a safari is primarily the environment. A jungle would be a lush green space often humid and with water. A safari would be a landscape that is often dry similar to a desert. Often a jungle is attached to tropical regions like South America and a Safari would frequently be used for dry environments like Africa.
Due to different locations and opposite climates, jungle, and safari animals are not the same. Just to name a few, safari animals include a lion, an elephant, a cheetah, a zebra, a rhino, a giraffe, an ostrich and a leopard. Alternatively, jungle animals might include monkeys, snakes, exotic birds, tigers, jaguars, and crocodiles. Animals that might overlap both environments are crocs, cheetahs, and elephants.
When planning an animal party it’s very easy to overlap safari theme party games with jungle theme party games. Luckily both include wild animals (pun in tented – meaning both your guests and the animals).
Safari Party Games
If you’re looking for some classic party games with a wild twist, try a few rounds of musical chairs set to jungle-themed music or have an animal treasure hunt where the prizes are hidden around the yard or park. Both are easy party games and honestly toddlers would love it but teens would also love both! I could just see them fighting over that last chair.
For a more active party, set up a jungle obstacle course with if you have the space or play some fun animal charades. No matter what games you choose, make sure to have plenty of prizes on hand for the winners! It can be a small prize like a piece of candy or animal-themed party favor.
Jungle Theme Party Games
If you want to go all out with a jungle theme party, then you’ll need some games that fit the bill. A few ideas include a Jungle Scavenger Hunt, where guests have to find items on a list around the party area, or a game of Jungle Jeopardy, where teams compete to answer questions about jungle animals. Just make sure you answer in question form!
For a really fun and unique party, try setting up a photo booth with jungle-themed props and backdrops. Your guests will have a blast taking photos and you’ll have some great memories to look back on! In this theme, have everyone come in costume and vote on the best animal costume. This could be great for older kids.
