With Virry Safari 2: Feel the Wild, you’ll head to the African Savannah to interact, feed, and safely engage with wild and endangered species in their natural habitats.
A perfect complement to the currently available Virry Safari: Wild Encounters, and filmed in beautiful 4K at the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in Kenya, Virry Safari 2: Feel the Wild brings an all new amazing set of virtual experiences and interactions with seven different animal species including elephants, lions, zebras, rhinos, and more. These are real animals and you’ll get closer to them than you ever thought possible.
This release also brings the innovative Mood-o-Meter to Oculus and Gear VR for the first time! Spending time in Virry Safari 2: Feel the Wild can have a positive impact on your well being and your general outlook and the Mood-o-Meter allows you to monitor changes in your mood while spending time on the magnificent savannah in Kenya and track your progress in the Settings menu.
Your connection to nature and involvement doesn’t have to end there. Subscribe to the three live HD-cameras installed at the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy and check in on the very same animals you just met in Virry any time day or night. Live cameras have a 15 minute free trial period after which subscriptions are $1.99 (USD) per month or $3.49 (USD) per month to donate $1.50 (USD) to Lewa.
