WIO Exercisers, pack your bags and grab your passports!! You are going on the WIO African Safari. Players will travel to 10 amazing places in Africa while on safari. At each stop, your task will be to claim your trophy animal and travel with them to the final location. At each stop, you will have your pick from 3 tour guides. 1 guide will have your trophy animal; 1 guide will have a Wii challenge for you to complete; and 1 guide will have a fitness/health challenge for you to complete. 10,000 steps are required to get to each location.
Steps will not carry over from prior destinations. Calories burned doing challenges will not be counted towards your next destination.**** After you reach a location, you will then pick a guide. If your guide does not possess your trophy animal, then you will be required to complete the guide’s challenge before picking another guide. Once you have your trophy animal in your possession, you may start accumulating steps towards your next destination. After you have collected all your trophy animals, you will travel to the final location to receive your final challenge. The first player to collect all their animals and complete the final challenge wins.

Various Wii games will be used in this challenge. The Wii challenges at each location will either be from one of the most widely owned games or be able to be completed on various Wii games. If for any reason you unable to complete any portion of the Wii or health/fitness challenges for medical reasons, please let Diane know and I will assign an alternate activity.
