After seeing a special show on "The Animal Planet" about Safari west, we went on line and booked a reservation.
The trip was wonderful and well worth the money.
Safari West is home of 400 species from the animal kingdom and covers 400 acres, several miles north east of Santa Rosa, Calif. The jeep tour takes about three hours and the guide that we had was wonderful, knowledgable, and fun.
The experience was topped off by spending the night in a cabin with tent sides and tent ceiling so we could hear the little creatures outside all night as they sang their songs.
No tv, no radio, not even cell phone availablility made it really seem like we were truly in Africa.
And the kitchen supplied wonderful delicious meals.
Everyone was so friendly and helpful and that goes a long way when one is 3000 miles from home.
Thank you to all who were involved in making our visit a most pleasant one.

We highly recommend this as part of your vacation plans.
