Safari West

3115 Porter Creek Road, Santa Rosa

  • Baby Ready
  • School Age Action
  • Cool for Teens

More than 600 animals roam free at Safari West, and visitors can observe them up close in open-air Jeeps or stay the night in stylish tent-cabins, aka ‘glamping’. This is one of those special places where it is easy for adults and kids to connect with one another and nature. The setting is gorgeous with scrub oak-covered hills — even without the animals, it’s a fantastic place. Riding in the jeep is a huge thrill for kids. The giraffes are incredible, and there are some fascinating animals that children may never have seen firsthand. Little details are done very well; there is an outdoor BBQ for meals, with a grassy area where kids can run around while adults sip wine. The tents are authentic, yet warm and comfortable.
