    Stop At: Safari West, 3115 Porter Creek Rd, Santa Rosa, CA 95404-9655

    In a region known for high-end wine and sophisticated food, Safari West offers one of the most family-friendly activities in wine country, so bring your kids along! When you arrive at the preserve, about a 20-minute drive north of downtown Santa Rosa, meet your safari guide and hop in your open-air Jeep to begin your wildlife tour of the ‘Sonoma Serengeti.’
    For three hours, explore the 400-acre (162-hectare) preserve both in the Jeep and on foot, and travel over rugged dirt roads in search of exotic animals. During the tour, your guide will tell you all about the wildlife at the preserve, including endangered species such as the Cape buffalo, springbok, blue wildebeest and red lechwe (a type of antelope). Learn how Safari West works to promote conservation of these beautiful wild animals.
    On your drive, pass by herds of African animals including gazelles, zebras, oryx, antelopes and — everyone’s favorite — giraffes, who may just come right up to the Jeep to look you in the eye. Then, hop out of your vehicle with your guide to walk for roughly 30 to 45 minutes. Admire flamingos and other colorful birds in the open-air aviary, observe cheetahs up close, check out the residents of Lemur Island, and laugh at the antics of the monkeys.
    When your tour ends, take some time to browse the gift shop for souvenirs such as jewelry, T-shirts and African art. You can also have lunch or dinner at the on-site Savannah Cafe (own expense; see the Exclusions for more details).
    Please provide your contact information (i.e. 'on the road' contact number) at time booking.

    Our tour guide, John, taught us facts about different species' behavior and characteristics in a simple yet memorable way. The resident wildlife seemed to have ample space to roam and graze, neither freaked out by nor too attracted to the regular rotation of tour vehicles....More

    The conversations with the tour guides were very much geared toward education and conservation. Our guide was actually a big cat biologist who travels to 3rd world countries trying to help endangered species. They looked... More
