Safari Hunt is a video game developed and manufactured by Sega for the Master System in 1986. It is a Light-gun game and requires the Sega Light Phaser to play. It was released as a built in game in Version 2.4 of the Master System BIOS. The game also came bundled in Combo Cartridges with other games, such as Hang-On.

The game plays a lot like an upgraded Duck Hunt from the NES, requiring the player to shoot at animals in a hunt. Where Safari Hunt improves is with its three levels (compared to one) and a variety of animals instead of only ducks. The player must score a certain amount of points gained by shooting the animals with a limited amount of bullets to move to the next level.


The three levels and animals included in each are:

  • Lake: Duck, Fish and Rabbit
  • Jungle : Bird, Armadillo and Bear
  • Forest : Spider, Monkey, Bat and Panther

The 3 levels repeat until level 69, at which the final required score is 1 million points. The player is told that he or she has made it to the end of the game and is given a "Game Over" screen.
