Description:

Escape to Africa by way of Sonoma County…Come discover the Sonoma...

Escape to Africa by way of Sonoma County…Come discover the Sonoma Serengeti. The classic African safari is a trip of a lifetime for intrepid travelers from around the globe - and, it is closer than you think! The entire Safari West experience is a kid-friendly adventure for families to enjoy together. Our tours are designed to educate guests of all ages and we have found that families are truly inspired as they learn from and share with one another. At Safari West we strive to actively promote conservation and environmental education concepts to our guests, whether they are with us for an hour or a week. The whole experience at Safari West is one of building connections and making discoveries; getting back to basics and enjoying the profound simple pleasures of family and nature that are all too often overlooked. If anything is “not to be missed,” it is that sense of serenity one finds while gazing at graceful giraffe nuzzling her newborn or the surge of raw adventure while witnessing an energetic herd of wildebeest galloping across the horizon. Overnight lodging is also available - the true 'glamping' experience!

Jessica was great. Really loved her job. She was able to keep the tour moving even when a couple people were a little toasty,

The Bay Area holds a lot of hidden gems, but Safari West is the best of them all. Nestled in the hills of Santa Rosa there is a lot of land for the animals to roam and be free. There's a walking tour that lasts about 45 mins and then the Safari tour is about 2 hours. The walking tour... More

Adults and children (ages 7 and 9) all thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Luckily, many animals were out and available for close-ups. Our guide was fabulous--very knowledgeable and patient with the many questions the children had. The tour was well-planned, with good pacing and attention to safety and comfort. We loved it!

It was a perfectly sunny crisp December day to go on an African Safari. The groups were well organized and our tour guide Troy was very personable and knowledgeable. Our tour consisted of a walk through the aviary followed by the jeep safari where we saw an abundance of animals up close. My favorites were the rhinos and giraffes. There... More
