African Safaris & Pricing

African Safaris & Pricing

Experience an African Safari on our Sonoma Savannah!

Enjoy a fascinating three-hour riding and walking adventure in Safari West’s 400-acre preserve. On the drive, you’ll come in contact with giraffes, gazelles, zebras, oryx, antelopes, cape buffalo, wildebeests and many of the other 700 animals in an exotic African savannah setting. On the walk, you’ll observe the resplendently-colored birds in our open-air aviary, check out cheetahs up close and personal, and laugh at the antics of the residents on Lemur Island and our other glorious primates. It’s an entertaining and educational experience for the entire family. Please know that the wildlife tours include a drive of up to 2½ hours over rugged terrain and may be uncomfortable for pregnant women. 

Age Requirement:  For the safety and enjoyment of all our guests, children must be 3 years or older to participate in a Classic Safari Tour. Safari West continues to pride itself on being a wonderful and unique destination for the whole family...please ask our reservation agents for additional options if you have a toddler.

  • Talk Nerdy to Me!

    While all of our tours are educational, The 'Nerdy Tour' is simply a step beyond. These tours may be led by either a trained biologist or someone that our Research and Education Department has considered to be qualified. These tours are typically led with an overarching emphasis in evolutionary theory and bio-geography. On this tour we will work to explain the circumstances that may have led to what these animals are. We may explore how the world has changed in millennial past and how life followed along. And, we may consider what is coming in the future and the new conditions (natural and artificial) which are leading to a different assortment of life.

    These tours are primed for those people that have a background in the natural sciences or those who have a great interest in them, Please understand, there is no promise you will get a nerdy tour when requested; however, we will do our best to match you with a specific tour guide who will share information on a more technical level.

    Note: The only way to guarantee a full 'Nerdy Tour' is to book a private tour.

  • Children Ages

    For the safety and enjoyment of all our guests, children must be 3 years or older to participate in a Classic Safari Tour. While the walking portion of the classic tour is great for kids of any age (even those who need a little help walking!) we have found that younger children can sometimes need extra attention on the driving portion of the tour, and this can be distracting to the other visitors. If the rest of your party is experiencing the full classic Safari Adventure, one adult can enjoy the walking portion of that tour with the toddler for the cost of $25 and the cost for the toddler is waived. Safari West continues to pride itself on being a wonderful and unique destination for the whole family. We introduce this age guideline to help ensure the experience is enjoyable for all of our valued guests. Private safaris are an excellent option for families - please ask our Reservations Agents.
