Safari West

Welcome to the Sonoma Serengeti

Dear Wildlife Lovers,

Welcome to Safari West and thank you for considering us for your next group event! We look forward to
meeting you and hosting your group here on the stunning Sonoma Serengeti. We are at your service and here
to help you build the experience of a lifetime.
Founded in 1993, Safari West has since become one of the premier wildlife destinations in the United States.
Between our expansive wildlife collection and the natural beauty of the woods and hills of Sonoma County,
Safari West truly is the closest you can come to Africa without going there. Your group will discover a 400-
acre wilderness with over 900 animals representing 90 different species roaming across some of the largest
enclosures in the country. There’s a lot to see and do—a truly unique opportunity for a great experience.
Safari West’s goal is to ignite wonder, curiosity, and hopefully, compassion. Our mission is to inspire wildlife
advocates who will help us protect and preserve these beautiful and often endangered creatures. Our
dedication to conservation, environmental education, stewardship, and individual responsibility shows in our
many ongoing projects and programs. We would love to welcome your group to join us in this worthy pursuit.

Safari West Lodging (or Glamping)

If you’ve ever dreamt of spending the night on the African plain, then you’ll love camping at Safari West. We
have 30 luxury tents imported from Lobatse, Botswana. The heavy duty canvas walls and mesh windows lend a
rustic air to an otherwise lavish experience. Each tent easily houses 4 to 6 occupants with a variety of bedding
arrangements from a single king to side-by-side doubles to a double bunks arrangement that are spectacular
for families. Whatever your particular arrangement, we’ve got a tent for you.
Each tent sits atop a high wooden platform with private decks providing panoramic views of your own slice
of Africa in the heart of Wine Country. Inside the tents polished copper basins shine in the en suite bathrooms
which also sport hot showers and real toilets. Polished hardwood flooring sets off the hand-hewn furniture,
and ultra-plush linens adorn the comfortable beds. Each tent is even wired for electric allowing ceiling fans in
summer, heating in winter, and numerous outlets to meet all your charging needs. The Safari West tent camp
features 30 tents with an additional cottage available on request. A full continental breakfast compliments all
overnight stays.

All this adventure builds up quite the appetite! Satisfy it at the Safari West Savannah Café. The Savannah Café
provides a hearty continental breakfast to tent guests as well as barbecue lunch and dinner by reservation.
The daily menu consists of selections of deliciously grilled chicken, pork, or beef prepared on our custom
built outdoor barbecue pit accompanied by a variety of sides. There are always several kid-friendly selections
to choose from and we can accommodate most dietary concerns. What’s more, we offer local Sonoma and
Napa county wines as well as an impressive selection of beers; many of them brewed locally! Diners at the
Savannah Café can enjoy their meal indoors in the Elephant Room, surrounded by authentic African murals
and carefully curated artifacts, or they can enjoy the veranda with its panoramic views of the flamingo ponds
and aviaries. Whether dining around the barbecue pit or out at Flamingo Landing, guests are certain to enjoy
the backdrop of our ambling giraffes as they dine. For those on the go, there are also options for a quick refuel
at our very own Delilah’s Snack Shop.

Adventure abounds as your group sets out in one
of our rugged, open air safari vehicles in search of
zebra, wildebeest, rhinos, ostrich, and more! You’ll
roam through steep sided canyons, over rolling
hills, and across open savannas on your quest.
With terrain similar to that of untamed Africa, our
vast herds are free to range virtually undisturbed
over hundreds of acres.
Not everything can be experienced from the
back of a truck, so your guide will also take
you exploring through our open-air aviary and
throughout our lower grounds where you’ll see
cheetahs, lemurs, birds from around the world,
and several monkey species.
