We organized a big group thing to celebrate a birthday. We reserved a private tour for about 10 of us and got the buffet dinner afterward. In addition, two of us stayed overnight in one of the deluxe “tents.” I thought it was really great—I want to come back with some other friends in a few months. Our guide, Cindy, couldn’t have been more knowledgeable or friendly—she’s a total asset to the organization. We saw so many animals and the drive was really fun. Dinner was ok—the Mac and cheese was really good.

Took my daughter's family, including a 6 and ab 8 year old. We had reservations for the 10 AM safari and the 1 PM buffet lunch. Our tour guide, Sky, was very friendly and very knowledgeable. We all learned a lot. The buffet was much better than I had expected. I highly recommend this experience.

We had a magical time. The staff amazing. The Animals amazing. The property amazing. We spent 3 nights which gave us 2 full days. Our first day we did the 8am behind the scenes tour. This was early and cold however I think it was the best time as the animals were fresh and ready for feeding. The giraffe experience will bring tears of joy to all. The food for breakfast was advertised as continental breakfast however there were eggs. The protein was appreciated. Dinner was plentiful and tasty. You are close to Calistoga and St Helena if you want a little wine tasting. Ok the big issue in December. The bathroom is 20-30 degrees colder than the rest of the tent. The heaters are virtually useless. Not a big deal if you use the electric blanket. A bad deal for those on the cotes and a miserable way to wake up and get ready. Not sure why they don’t make a trip to Costco and great new heaters. (Picture attached). Frankly this was a big issue as we sat in the room wearing our winter coats to play games. ( we had 3 different heaters hoping for a different response). Overall we are having a blast. Wish us luck as we go to bed with the tent temperature around 40

My family and I got away for a night up to the tent cabins at Safari West. What an amazing experience! The zoo itself is spectacular with so much diversity. We thoroughly enjoyed our tent cabin which was way less "roughing it" than we expected - beautifully appointed and so much fun. We fell asleep and woke up to the sounds of all of the animals, felt like we were in Africa. The Safari tour we did was great and our tour guide Robert was knowledgeable and entertaining. In fact, everyone we met was knowledgeable, helpful and seemed to completely enjoy the work they did. We'll definitely be back!
