More Klaserie Sands Safari Trivia to play at home!

Posted on Fri June 12, 2020.

We have been running a weekly, interactive Safari Trivia on our Facebook and Instagram stories since the lockdown began and it is proving to be extremely popular!

So, we thought we would give you the questions to run your own trivia game at home with your family or friends. Some of the questions are easier than others, but there's no doubt that you will learn something new by the end!

Get your players to write down their answers so you can add up their score at the end. The correct answers are at the bottom of the page. Good luck!

You can find the first three rounds of Safari Trivia here.
