This 400-acre wildlife reserve is about a 90-minute drive from San Francisco, and seeks to replicate an African Safari-style experience in the "Sonoma Serengeti." Unlike a traditional zoo, Safari West is a natural habitat that allows visitors to take a two-to-three–hour tour over rugged terrain to see more than 500 animals, including giraffes, buffalo, lemurs, and zebras. Open and close-top aviaries also house hundreds of exotic birds from Africa, New Guinea, and South America. Lodging is available in heated, fully furnished tents, and the Savannah Café serves fire-pit cooked meals.
