Overview

Escape to Africa by way of Sonoma County…Come discover the Sonoma Serengeti. The classic African safari is a trip of a lifetime for intrepid travelers from around the globe - and, it is closer than you think! The entire Safari West experience is a kid-friendly adventure for families to enjoy together. Our tours are designed to educate guests of all ages and we have found that families are truly inspired as they learn from and share with one another. At Safari West we strive to actively promote conservation and environmental education concepts to our guests, whether they are with us for an hour or a week. The whole experience at Safari West is one of building connections and making discoveries; getting back to basics and enjoying the profound simple pleasures of family and nature that are all too often overlooked. If anything is “not to be missed,” it is that sense of serenity one finds while gazing at graceful giraffe nuzzling her newborn or the surge of raw adventure while witnessing an energetic herd of wildebeest galloping across the horizon. Overnight lodging is also available - the true 'glamping' experience!

This is a spectacular place! A must see for any family with any age kids or special couples weekend. We had a great time and enjoyed the BBQ dinner along with the heated blankets provided for the chilly evenings.

I want to say the tour guide is very knowledgeable and patient. She explains everything we come across. Anyway, tour is bad because there are no animals to look at. It's all the same kind of animals. No elephants or tigers, so don't think of...More

My husband and I went and did the safari. It was fun, you get close to the animals and learn a lot. Four stars only because at times it felt more like a glorified zoo than a aafari. Although the animals have more open enclosures...More

I think you would have to take Lyft or Uber to get there - it's not really near anything where a regular bus route would run. You can also spend the night there.
