What's the story?

ANDY’S SAFARI ADVENTURES features Andy Day exploring wildlife around the world. Andy’s working at Safari World, a wonderful (and fictitious) safari park, along with his boss Mr. Hammond (Adam Astill) and tech wizard Jen (Puja Panchkoty). But when something goes unexpectedly wrong, or when something important is needed to prepare for the arrival of a new animal, Andy takes his special Safari Mobile, which can quickly take him anywhere in the world, to look for specific species of animals. Once he finds them, he uses his Gizmo to help see them close up, and learn more about them, in order to come up with solutions. 

Is it any good?

This British import combines Andy's trademark live-action, CGI, and spectacular animal video footage to create an entertaining and educational animal series that kids will love. From visiting the Himalayas to find a snow leopard, to diving with humpback whales off the Pacific coast of Mexico, Andy enthusiastically embarks on one adventure after an other to learn more about the behaviors of different animals that live around the world. Simple explanations allow kids to grasp ideas, and the host occasionally adds his slapstick humor to make it more entertaining. It’s geared towards preschoolers, but animal lovers of all ages will find Andy’s Safari Adventures fun and engaging. 

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the behaviors of different animals featured on the show. Were you surprised by anything they do? What animals do you think are the most or least like humans? Why?

  • Why do you think it's important for Andy to travel so far to observe the animals in person? Would Andy’s Safari Adventures be able to teach us the same things by just showing us videos of animals in the wild? Would it be as interesting or entertaining?
