We’re going on a safari through the plains of Africa! Each week, our safari guide, Rafiki, will take kids on an adventure to look for a special safari animal. Kids will help Rafiki drive the safari jeep and follow the animal’s tracks until they find it!

Each week, the animal they find will tell them a story from God’s Word. Along the way, a camera will pop onto the screen. This will cue Rafiki and the kids to “snap a pic” so they will remember all the wonderful things the animal showed them in the Bible. After the Bible story, Rafiki and kids will try to head back, but will find that their keys have been snatched by a silly bird named Yuni! They must use the pictures they took during the Bible story to answer Yuni’s questions and get their keys back. When they return, the celebrate with a song!

Song: The B-I-B-L-E

Quinn, a famous YouTube personality, is on Safari in Africa getting footage for his next YouTube hit when he is left behind by his safari crew. Each week Quinn learns how to survive out in the wild as he tries to make it back to the reserve where his crew is staying. In Week 1, Quinn discovers a Safari Guide that helps him through all the situations he faces. The Safari Guide represents how the Bible is important for our everyday lives.
