A unique experience and great surprise for my wife as I kept her in suspense until we entered the property. The tent/cabin was too cool! The preserve and sounds from the variety of unrehearsed animals early or late just have to be experienced. The evening...More
The glamping tent was like a luxury hotel room, much nicer than expected. The safari was a fun, entertaining and educational experience. Unlike in a zoo, the animals are kept in the open, roaming free in a preserve setting. Bravo.
The dinner and complementary breakfast...More
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....More
At first you may think, great another animal park, been there done that. But this one is different, the animals are roaming around free and happy, and seem healthy and well looked after. Plenty to eat and low stress. The SUV has giant tires and...More
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.

Hmmm . . . First of all your grandchildren will love Safari West. Just make sure you visit when the weather is neither too hot nor too cold. My guess is that most people spend one night and one day at Safari West. You can pretty much cover it in that amount of time. Be sure to book the dinner on the night you stay. To my knowledge there is no Amtrak nearby. I would drive and stop to visit other wonderful things along the way. Hearst Castle comes to mind. One of my favorite way offbeat places is a real working ranch near San Luis Obispo. They have limited guest facilities, I think it's called "Work Family Guest Ranch". If the kids are into horses they can go on a beautiful ride. Next stop could be San Francisco, lots of kid-related things to do there obviously depending on the ages. Then up to Safari West. Head home through Yosemite, well worth several nights, etc. Good luck with the planning
