Yoshi's Safari is a game starring Mario and Yoshi for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. This is the first game released in the western market to refer to Princess Toadstool by her Japanese name "Peach", albeit only temporarily. 


The Koopa Kingdom has attacked, and Jewelry Land has been split into two parts: Light and Dark. Mario and Yoshi have to rescue King Fret and Prince Pine, and retrieve the twelve magic gems that keep the kingdom in balance.
