Also known as the Sonoma Serengeti, Safari West in Santa Rosa, California, is one of the most unique adventures in the United States where you have the chance to get up close to over 900 animals from over 90 unique species roaming on their 400-acre preserve.
What started as a private conservation center in the late 1980’s has become a multi-faceted wildlife preserve offering education and experiences to thousands of people annually.
Today they offer:
- Classic Safari Adventures
- Ultimate Private Safaris
- Behind The Scenes Experiences including Keeper For A Day
- Dining in the Savannah Cafe featuring authentic South African Braai
- School Field Trips
- African Tent Camp for Overnight Stays
Though fully accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, Safari West is not your typical zoo nor a theme park. You explore the habitats via an authentic safari jeep and learn about their mission of conservation, education and exploration, while getting super close to animals like the zebra, giraffe, rhinoceros and cheetah, to name a few.
I highly recommend Safari West during your next trip to Santa Rosa – it’s perfect for ages 4+!
Stay travel obsessed!
