We took the tour and were able to see such a variety of animals up close which isn't possibly generally within the states. This is a must see for animal lovers. They also have the option to stay overnight which i'm sure kids would love. There were many kids when we were

Safari West was a great experience. The tent cabins are definitely glamping style. The sounds of all the animals at night was really neat. Definitely a 1-2 night experience, at most. You can see everything there is to see in 1 day.

The tents are spacious, very nicely decorated and well laid out. They have good protection in the event of inclement weather whilst you stay there. The balcony is a nice touch with the opportunity to sit and watch the animals. We intentionally chose one very close to the

Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any further comments or questions to share and I'll hope we'll see you again someday.

Great day out the kids had a wonderful time on top of the truck. Plenty to see and our guide was first class. Only sorry the BBQ did not start until 6.30pm , our tour finished at 5pm. Should have stayed overnight, maybe next time.

Good morning! Thanks for this very kind review. I'm glad to hear you had a good time with your family and of course we'd love to see you again. I'd say your thoughts about spending the night are spot on. It really is the best possible way to fully experience Safari West. If you should decide to come back for another day trip without the overnight however, I'd also like to mention that our 4pm tours wrap up right around 6:30 or 7:00 and so are perfectly synchronized with the start of dinner. Again, I'm very happy to hear you enjoyed your time with us and please, come again soon. Thank you!
