What does John have to say?

We can see the appeal of slots themed on an African safari, but we’re just not entirely sure that the Kalahari Safari is it. It’s beautifully made, and the max potential is pretty darn good, but the key stats were the major let down for us here. Do try it though, if not for the biggest wins then for some fun in the adventurous red-sand desert.

Kalahari Safari Review

Meaning ‘a waterless place’ and stretching for 360,000 square miles across Botswana, Namibia and South Africa, the red-sand Kalahari Desert is used as the central theme here. It’s not exactly a new concept for an online slot, but it’s nice to see a home of wild animals so well-executed visually by the team over at Lightning Box. Whether it’s just as good gameplay-wise is another matter and one which we will discuss in detail further down in our slot review.

Kalahari Safari Bonus Features

If only the safari-inspired bonus features were as thrilling as stated by the CEO of Lightning Box. The main and only thrill here comes from the stampede scatters that charge the main bonus round, awarding free spins and stacked elephant wilds. Here’s what you’ll find in the Kalahari Safari slot.


Maintaining the magnificent theme of the African safari, wilds identify as elephants, one of the most majestic of the big-five animals to roam the Kalahari desert. They substitute for all paying symbols except scatters and only land on the middle 2, 3 and 4 reels.


As you explore the desert, watch out for a herd of elephants hastily charging across the reels. If 3 or more of these stampede scatters hit the reels, the bonus round begins at once.

Free Spins

Unleashed by stampede scatters, the bonus round is a straightforward session in the Kalahari Safari slot. The round begins with 8, 15, or 20 free spins for 3, 4 or 5 scatters respectively and wild elephant stacks appearing on reels 2, 3 and 4 exclusively. The stacked wilds, some of them covering an entire reel, stay active throughout the bonus feature, thus maximising your potential wins.

Landing a further 2, 3, 4 or 5 scatters during the round will give you another go at building winning combinations with yet another batch of 5, 8, 15 or 20 free spins respectively.

Kalahari Safari Jackpot

Try as you might, you won’t find any jackpot in Kalahari Safari, but you could still uncover some generous payouts of up to 6,400x your stake that lay deep underneath the dusty surface.

RTP and Volatility

The game’s theoretical RTP fluctuates between 95.10% and 95.64% which, in any case, is on the lower side. The rate is either just above the industry average of 95% or below the standard rate of 96%. Considering the decent max potential, the medium volatility won’t do you any favours either.
