An excellent alternate to an African Photo Safari. The owners have duplicated an African tent camp as much as possible, including imported tents from South Africa, Safari vehicles like those used in southern African countries and the dining is buffets like we enjoyed in Zambia and Botswana. The facility has 400 acres and 90 different types of animals all from... More

Having been to SD Zoo's Safari Park in Escondido, CA, we expected this overnight adventure to be spectacular. The tent cabin was very nice, but the rest of it was pretty much a poor experience especially since they ran out of food at dinner and the breakfast was hardly better than one at a low end motel. Checking in and... More

Not only are these tent cabins very fun and comfortable, if you are looking for a comparable accommodation in wine country, you won't find it. The only thing that makes your room a "tent" is the soft sides and roof. The rooms are nicely decorated with hardwood floors, private bathroom, comfortable beds. You will also feel like you are out... More

This was a fabulous trip with grandchildren ages 1 and 3. We did a behind the scenes tour where children could feed the animals. They loved it. The luxury tent accommodations were very nice. Appreciated the bathroom and shower. Beds were oh so comfortable. And the sounds of the animals so close were amazing. The evening barbecue with full bar... More

After reading about Safari West in Sunset Magazine, we had to add it to our CA Road Trip. The entire experience exceeded our expectations. It felt like we were sleeping in a zoo, minus the crowds. We fell asleep listening to the sounds of the monkeys and birds. The tents were very nice and complete with a heated blanket. We... More

We rearranged our entire trip around our visit to Safari West, and I'm so glad we did! This place is a unique experience for anyone looking for an adventure. We took our 5 and 11 year old kids and did the safari. That night we did the family style cookout and stayed in the two bedroom cottage. We would do... More

Safari West was such a great experience!!! We stayed in the tent, which had a kind size bed and full size bunk beds. Very comfortable beds with electric blankets because you are literally sleeping in a tent; made from the same material as tents in Africa. We had a plethora of animals all around us. Yes, you could hear them,... More

We had a great visit to Safari West. Saw a commercial when we arrived in San Fran and googled it. Was so glad we went! Our tour guide was Jenna, who was fantastic. From the perspective of each family member: Girl (10) -- loved riding on the roof of a jeep and I got to see my very favorite animal,... More

This review is for lodging accommodations at Safari West. Due to a back injury we did not go on the safari tour. We are a family of four with older teenaged kids. I have always wanted to spend the night at this place and finally got a chance to do so when Groupon came out with a special. We were... More
