Happy April and happy Earth Day! Spring is finally in full swing here at Safari West! It’s such a joy to walk the property and see the families coming and going from the tent cabins, sitting down together at the Savannah Cafe, and loading up in droves to go meet and mingle with the wild creatures who make their home here in the hills of Sonoma County. Every day at Safari West is an adventure and this time of year, it feels like things may never settle down again!

We just reopened our Amani Oasis, the large walk-through aviary that sits right in the heart of Safari West. Already the nesting tree is full of squeaking and squawking birds building nests and tending to eggs. We have at least a few sacred ibis chicks crying for food from their sky-high nursery. Beneath another tree in the oasis we have a pair of ground-nesting demoiselle cranes carefully tending to their own egg as we and our safari guests watch from the brand new paved walkways.

Outside the oasis, life is just as crazy. Our three giraffe babies are growing like weeds and tacking on inch after inch to their already impressive heights. We’ve also had recent births in our antelope herds, including several adorable, elf-eared young roan antelope out in the twelve-acre enclosure visible from the tent camps.

If you spent this winter waiting out the weather before coming to see us, then your time has arrived. We welcome you to Safari West. Come meet our ever expanding family and learn about the incredible diversity of wildlife living with us on this big beautiful planet. Happy Earth Day!
