Guest Safety: 
Like all hospitality organizations, Safari West is adjusting to a changed world when it comes to ensuring a safe environment for our staff, guests, and animals. As an institution housing numerous rare and endangered species, we have always had highly stringent policies and practices when it comes to mitigating disease transmission and general cleanliness. Even so, we have made significant changes to our business model, including further restricting the number of guests allowed on property at one time, reducing the number of guests on each safari, increasing physical distancing at the restaurant, gift shop, and other locations, and installing protective barriers anywhere and everywhere they are necessary. In addition, we have crafted this Safety and Health Commitment which drives and will continue to drive our endeavors in the lead up to and following the reopening of Safari West.

 


Good Gnus – Safari West is coming back…albeit it slowly

January 28, 2021

Our goal is to reopen safely for our team, our animals, and our guests. Safari West will reopen in stages starting with Valentine’s Day Tours on February 13th and 14th. Then, starting on February 27th, we will open full time for guests booking tours and visiting the gift shop. The Safari Tents, the Savannah Café and the Deli will open on the 1st of March.

We hope to see all your smiling faces soon! These are trying times and we appreciate your understanding and support.

Stay safe out there … We miss you!

How You Can Help Protect Yourself and Others

While COVID-19 is a novel disease, it is subject to the same control measures as the common cold or seasonal flu. The following recommendations come directly from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and more useful information can be found on their website:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Put distance between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community. This is especially important for people who are at higher risk of getting very sick.
  • Stay home if you are sick, except to get medical care.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow.
  • Throw used tissues in the trash.
  • Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, clean your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.

Thank You and Stay Safe
