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!

The accommodations were great, the food was fantastic, the atmosphere was fun and unique. I would recommend this to anyone, old or young. The ride through the site on the safari jeep was fun, especially on the top.

I think you would have to take Lyft or Uber to get there - it's not really near anything where a regular bus route would run. You can also spend the night there.

I was wondering if it is worth the trip to just spend the night and not take the safari tour. Can you still see the animals? My children and 4 and 2, so it wouldn't be possible to do the classic safari anyway, but I know they would love to see the animals.
