World Village (Gamer's Zone)
This program would, in my opinion, be best suited as a tool to supplement African social studies, rather than a primary learning tool. But it is still an excellent game, and well worth the investment in both the money to acquire it, and the time to learn it. As an added incentive, the original Oregon Trail CD-ROM is included free in the package. These two game together can provide hours of fun and learning entertainment for your children (and yourself).

While Africa Trail simulates the feel of a bike trip well, it is less adept at showing players the people of Africa. You may get a feel for the people and culture, but the information is really no more than a superficial glimpse.
