Where are we going today?

The natural world awaits you... Faster is not always better. In a world increasingly dominated by technology, instant communication and instant gratification, Safari West stands as a tangible testament to the joy of the natural world, where the pace of life is dictated not by deadlines, but by nature. Nestled on 400 acres in the heart of California's wine country, Safari West is home for over 400 exotic mammals and birds. Not a zoo, not a drive-through park, it's a wildlife preserve where the whole family can experience some of nature's most beautiful animals in a natural habitat.

    If you have kids, TAKE THEM HERE! I went as part of a work offsite (apparently a very common place for off sites) and really enjoyed the experience. We did the 3 hour tour, which consisted of a 45 min walking tour through the bird enclosure and the monkey areas, and then the 2 hour tour on a jeep through the rest of the animal sanctuary. The jeeps were very well designed. Tip: if you want the bumpy adventure feel, sit on the second level since they are mounted on springs.

    You are going to LOVE Safari West... Short of Going to Africa, this is the only way you are going to see many of these animals roaming free. They have Giraffes, Leopards and osteriches - even a Rhino.. Right up Wark West Springs Road - fantastic. Hope you have as much fun as we did

Our tour guide took us on a great adventure and we got to be very close to the animals, enough for the giraffe to shoot saliva on us! I would imagine kids would love an adventure here.

They also have cabins/tents for overnight stays. A lunch buffet was provided with our group package, but the lunch was just okay. Lunch included mac and cheese, pulled pork slider, roasted chicken, salad, and fruit. Dessert was cream puffs.
