Have you ever wished for the up-close excitement and adventure of an African safari, but without spending the cost and time it takes to actually get to Africa?

Now you can!

Head up the California coast into the rolling hills of wine country and check out Safari West, a California based African Safari experience featuring animals such as giraffes, cheetahs and over 400 more exotic mammals and birds!

Nestled on 400 acres in Santa Rosa, Safari West takes you on a 2.5 hour excursion into the wild.  You’ll ride in safari jeep and encounter several animals up close.

For those of us who don’t live close to Santa Rosa, the experience of the African safari can be enhanced with an overnight stay in one of the many on-site cottages or luxury tents.  The luxury tents are imported from Africa and are built on high wooden platforms with spacious decks. They feature plush beds, hot showers in a private bathroom and rustic but elegant furnishings. On-site massages are also available for your relaxation and enjoyment.

If your adventure has made you hungry, head over to the Savannah Café for a BBQ feast and many local options for wine. You are, after all, still in California wine country!

Guests of Safari West may opt to extend their stay and check out more of the neighboring Northern California gems, such as the petrified forestWindsor golf course, Montelena winery or the swimming, hiking and fishing of Spring Lake!
