Safari Trek-&-Treat on the Sonoma Serengeti!
Before you go out to Trick-or-Treat, you and yours should come to Trek-and-Treat at the Safari West Halloween Spook-tacular! Each attendee of this annual event receives a “Wild Card” and a chance to explore the Trick-or-Treat Trail. Explore the trail and fill out your Wild Card as you learn about amazing animal adaptations. Once completed, visit the Safari West Pumpkin Patch and redeem your card for a special prize.
While you’re at the pumpkin patch, you can also purchase a pumpkin for yourself, or to donate to one of our animals! Pumpkins make great enrichment items and whether the animals play with them, eat them, or smash them to smithereens, they sure do love these big orange gourds! Either way, the money spent will be donated to the amazing Vulture Conservation Foundation who work to protect some of the world’s most amazing and least appreciated birds.
The fun begins at 10 am with Safari Treks departing every 45 minutes!
Adults $50; Children (4-12) $25

Vultures, Snakes, and Owls! Oh My!
This year, we’ve invited some special guests to help us put on our Spook-tacular! Partner organizations like Bird Rescue, the East Bay Vivarium, and UC Berkeley will be on hand, adding their own unique animals to the seasonal sites. For this one day only, our collection will include, not just monkeys, cheetahs, and rhinos, but vultures, owls, newts, and even flesh-eating beetles!
Board the Safari West Trek Bus and explore herds of giraffe and antelope, long-horned cattle, and our awe-inspiring southern white rhinos! Trek loops last for 35-40 minutes and are great for even the youngest members of your herd!
After your trek, explore the lower grounds to discover cheetahs, monkeys, exotic birds and more! Beginning at 10:00 am, the Trek Bus departs every 45 minutes (10:00/10:45/11:30/12:15/1:00/1:45).
Only 30 seats available for each loop so reserve your spot today!
Safari West Conservation Pumpkin Patch
Every year Safari West hosts our annual conservation pumpkin patch. This patch works like any other, but with a special safari twist! While you can certainly purchase a pumpkin to take home, you can also buy one to donate to our amazing animals. Pumpkins make for amazing enrichment items (enrichment items are toys, puzzles, and other things our keepers use to keep our wild friends engaged and stimulated). No matter what you choose to do with your pumpkin, the money you spend goes to our dear friends at the Vulture Conservation Foundation. Vultures around the world are facing a real crisis and there’s just no better time to show them some love than at Halloween!
