Step behind the curtain and take your exploration to the next level! These private behind-the-scenes experiences are designed to get you as close as possible to some of the amazing creatures of Safari West. Take pride in knowing that all proceeds from these unique encounters go directly toward our conservation efforts and help support some of the most critical conservation work being done, both here in Sonoma County and worldwide!

Behind the Scenes Tour

This is our most popular Wild Encounter, and is perfect for groups of up to 6 guests. In this hour-long tour, get up close and personal with some of our most unique furred and feathered residents. You will get the chance to feed some of our animals, and learn what it takes to make sure they’re always happy and healthy. This wild walk may include visits to the giraffe barn, warthog pen, our walk-in bird aviary, and more!

*Due to animal health and welfare considerations, the details of the behind-the-scenes walk are subject to change. For the comfort of our animals, this is a feeding tour, not a petting tour.

Pricing: starting at $275 for two people. You can expand your group at $50 per additional adult, $30 for each additional child (ages 3-12), and $15 for each additional toddler (ages 1-2) up to a six-person maximum limit. Gratuity is included in this price.

Please book a minimum of five (5) days in advance to ensure availability. Thank you!
