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.
The tents are spacious, very nicely decorated and well laid out. They have good protection in the event of inclement weather whilst you stay there. The balcony is a nice touch with the opportunity to sit and watch the animals. We intentionally chose one very...More

Great day out the kids had a wonderful time on top of the truck. Plenty to see and our guide was first class. Only sorry the BBQ did not start until 6.30pm , our tour finished at 5pm. Should have stayed overnight, maybe next time.More

We loved our stay here! The Tent cabins are so nice! We were not cold at all. Nice warm blankets and a heater. Animals are noisy at night but that is the fun of it. There is a table and chairs out on the deck...More

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
