Let's Play Safari Bingo

To play along, Virtual Safari Bingo cards gave players animals, phrases, and items to spot during the safari. From there the rules were simple… See a red-billed oxpecker? Claim that square! Did the guide say the secret word? Claim that square too! Players who collected enough squares to achieve bingo earned entries for the grand prize drawing, and those who were active on social media were able to win even more entries by spinning the fabulous bonus wheel.
