Cabela's African Safari is a semi-open world adventure game that puts the player in the boots of an aspiring collector of renowned big game trophy animals. On the hunter's journey, the player will travel around Africa to find the most sought after trophy animals: South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Mozambique. The Xbox 360 and PSP versions also have Tanzania as the final location.

The goal of the aspiring big game hunter is to hunt the 'big five' animals in Africa: Lions, Crocodiles, Rhinoceroses, Leopard and Elephants. During this journey, the huntsman will also kill other, smaller game and birds. The animals will be found either from tracking on foot or on top of a jeep.
