This is trip we had been wanting to do for sometime and we were not disappointed. Seeing and feeding the animals at Fossil Rim is always a treat and educational. The Safari Camp tents were very cozy and comfortable (it was very cold out but comfortable in tent). Our group brought in food so we could maximize time at Safari... More

2 adults and one child (11) stayed in one of the Foothills tents last night over Spring Break. Had a great time! The tents are nice with a bathroom with shower (don't expect to take more than 1 hot shower in a row as the hot water tank is small). There are 2 twin beds built in with a window on... More

This was our first stay at the Fossil Rim Wildlife center. We've been to the center before and considered staying but never did until last weekend. The tent is quite comfortable but it is small. The beds turned out to be more comfortable than we expected. We also had dinner at the pavilion the evening we stayed. The salad and... More

The Foothills Safari Camp is a handful of tent/cabins overlooking a watering hole at Fossil Rim. The tent is fairly spartan but comfortable enough with twin beds and bathroom and not much else. A realtor would call it cozy. Only 2 outlets to charge any electronics, run a hair dryer, etc. Free wifi is available in the pretty pavilion where... More

We stayed here with a group of six people. The grounds were beautiful and near lots of wildlife, separated by a fence. Foothills camp looked out over the hills and could see for miles. Cabins were not too bad, could use a bit more cleaning, but overall nice. A/C worked well, shower and bathroom nice, and had a door that... More

My wife and I stayed at the Lodge at Fossil Rim in May, 2012. We wanted to return and stay at the safari camp. This time we took our grandkids. The safari camp is chain link fenced off and the wildlife can not migrate through it. We visited in February. It was the last off-season weekend. The next week the... More

Spent the night with my son in the Addax tent. The AC was great and the room was clean. We saw many animals at the water hole. A Sandhill Crane walked the grounds along with jackrabbits and an armadillo. My son, 10 years old, thoroughly enjoyed the stay.

Our family spent two nights in a safari tent at Fossil Rim and we all had a blast. The tents are like very small hotel rooms made to look like rustic tents - they have showers, toilets, electricity, HVAC. Breakfast is served at the Pavilion which is just a short walk from the tents. There are animals all around the... More

I had no idea a place like this in the US existed! My family and I rented out the safari camp for the a weekend in June 2012 for my Aunt and Uncle's 25th anniversary. What a weekend to remember! I love how the camp is so close to the animals. There's nothing like sitting outside in a chair, sipping... More
