Bert Kaempfert And His Orchestra - The Original Swingin Safari - 237584 - (Condition - 90-95%) - LP Record

"A Swingin' Safari" is an instrumental composed by Bert Kaempfert in 1962. It was recorded by Kaempfert on Polydor Records and released in the United States on Decca Records, but failed to chart. It was then recorded by Billy Vaughn that   same year, and Vaughn's cover reached number 13 on the Billboard charts in the summer of 1962.

The song features a distinctive main theme played on the tin whistle and a trumpet solo by Manfred "Fred" Moch. Kaempfert's original version served as the original theme music to the television game show The Match Game from 1962-1967. It is also featured as the main theme in the Swedish game show called Vi i femman, where two teams of fifth-graders compete against each other.

The song was a title track of an LP consisting of orchestrations of the South African kwela style of penny-whistle music popular in the 1950.
