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!

Great day--ask for Jeff--he is a great guide! My favorite was the giraffe and rhino. My 80 year old mom loved it as well!

Family visit on the safari! Nice to see animals not all caged up, they are out free. Giraffes came up to the jeep, very cool! Will have to go back and spend the night in one of the tents.

Saw many animals and learned a lot. The tent cabins were fantastic and the food was delicious. I would go again.

We had a wonderful day at safari west. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. The animals were amazing to see as well as the beautiful property. You can tell how much everyone cares for these animals. Worth the time and the money.

I was wondering if this place will even be open considering the devastating fire that engulfed the area in October 2017. Luckily, they survived (thanks to the owner staying back and using garden hoses to fight back flames to save the animals) even though you...More

There was only 1 bumpy area and that was perhaps for fun of the kids along. Just tell them, they are totally accomodating.

The walking portion is brief. I don't recall places to sit but you can always return to the main area to rest before your drinking tour starts. The vehicle is covered. It's rarely beastly hot in Sonoma county, but to be sure... More
