We were very lucky to have spent the night in one of the 30+ huts on site. Sleeping amongst the sounds of the animals is something everyone had to do. The Safari itself is really fun. About an hour on foot exploring the aviaries, and...More

This place is incredible. Fantastic food like grass fed burgers at lunch and tri tip or chicken in the evening. The animals and ride through the hills on a double decker vehicle is amazing.

The walking portion is brief. I don't recall places to sit but you can always return to the main area to rest before your drinking tour starts. The vehicle is covered. It's rarely beastly hot in Sonoma county, but to be sure... More
