Beginner's Mode is a two-stage introduction to Jambo! Safari that can be accessed from the start menu. Since completion of this mode uses an entire credit, the player is prompted to switch to Expert Mode if the choice was a mistake. There are only two stages in this mode, interspersed with advice from the Radar.
After completing the Final Training, the game switches to an attract mode showing off the extra content exclusive to Expert Mode, culminating in a shot of the Phorousrhacos obscured in shadow. It bellows a loud roar before returning to the opening menu.
