Description:

Escape to Africa by way of Sonoma County…Come discover the Sonoma...

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!

Land mammals are awesome in any setting, so I was already expecting a great tour. What blew me away was the amount of thought Safari West have put into the experience. The check-in process is extremely fast, they have a nice hangout area while you wait for your tour, the guides constantly provide great information on the animals and their... More

We took our four year old grandson, who is way into cheetahs, and we were not disappointed. The walking tour guide told us lots about the animals and had cheetahs and a serval. Very cool. Then we got on the open air jeep and toured the premises and the animals. We were never in the open air company of dangerous... More

About 5 years ago, my husband and I enjoyed the MANY animals from many countries of the world, but especialy Africa. We rode on your Safarie vehicle, and viewed a wide variety of exotic four legged and two legged animals and birds on your many acres of land. In early spring when trees are budding and some leaves are just... More

This is a fun, educational & unforgettable experience that someone of any age can enjoy. The animals are gorgeous & the extra cost of the jeep ride is worth it. It's the kind of thing that goes into my limited category of a must, (at least) once-in-a-lifetime experience for all families.

That's too bad that there isn't a zero rate. Don't ever book any trip there unless you want to be robbed. I cancelled the overnight reservation, the tour and dinner within hours after making the reservation. Safari West is a shark and heavily practicing bait and switch along with Travel Zoo. In hours they took me to hell and back... More

Good Day Negricillo, It deeply saddens me that you did not kindly accept our sincere apologies for the error we made during your reservation. Please understand, our reservation staff had no intentions of overcharging you – it was simply an error when the agent marked two adults rather than one senior and one adult. Again, we do sincerely apologize for... More
