Second time to this place in 6 years, even better this time with many more animals. Glamping at its best although a bit cold given December. Food and service were great. Tour was a lot of fun and good for photos. Tents have heaters as well as heated blankets so you won't get cold.

Safari west was a great experience. The tent cabins were wonderful and that was in December during a rainfall! The electric blankets were a nice addition. The tour, even on a cloudy overcast day was well worth the experience and a positive experience. The only drawback was the less than eventful BBQ dinner. Pricey for what was presented ( especially...

This is one of the greatest places I've ever been to. Everyone is very friendly, and they take pride in what they do there. It's wonderful to know that they care so much for their animals, and they make it known. When you first arrive, you get together with your tour group and go on a walking tour where you... More

Everything about our recent stay at Safari West was excellent! Due to unforseen issues we arrived late for checkin. Not only did the staff call to check on us, but they also saved us heaping plates of dinner & kept the food warm until we arrived (just as everyone else was finishing desert). Even though the evening temps got down... More

The place is called Safari West. It is a one of a kind experience and I think everyone should give it a shot (makes a great romantic getaway or even a birthday present). Spending the night on the property in these luxury tents and waking up to the animals is unlike anything I have ever experienced. Trust me when I... More

My husband and I visited this week and I must admit I was a little skeptical at first. It's a pretty rustic setting, but the staff was very friendly and as soon as the tour started, we were drawn in. It was a great 3 hour tour... The group is small enough that you can easily interact with the guide.... More

My wife and I visited the second week in September. We started off the day with the safari prior to check in. The safari starts with a one hour walk through a large aviary with all sorts of exotic birds and other animals. Then we walked through the area of caged animals. These include several types of monkeys, (we saw... More

After receiving a gift card for my family (2 adults, 2 kids ages 5 & 8) to do the 3 hour safari tour, we booked our tour for yesterday. Hubby and I have lived in Santa Rosa for 12 years and had never gone - we were missing out! The tour itself was amazing - we took turns riding on... More

Glamping at its best. Running hot water, toilet, electricity and if you are ATT you have five bars of 4g lte service! Throw in wine, great food, and excellent staff and the flamingoes don't seem so bad. Bring ear plugs and bug spray though. Oh, and do the back tour to feed the animals, it was amazing!!!

Fun for the family. My daughter and I did the safari tour, spent the night in the "tent" and had the BBQ. It was a great experience and I recommend you do it at least once. Very fun. Earlier in the AM or late in the PM is usually best. Get's pretty hot! Fall is probably a good time. Summer... More
