Staying in one of Safari West’s “luxury tents” allows you to be close to nature without having to actually rough it. Some call it “Glamping,” or as I like to say, “Camping in style.”
Tents are spaced in a way to provide adequate privacy. Each one also gives visitors excellent views of the preserve.
Enjoy a drink and snack on the attached deck while watching Giraffes or reading a book. Visitors may request tents closer to some of the animals but keep in mind the tent walls are not insulated. You may be “entertained” ALL NIGHT by some of the animals as they go about their normal nightly routines. Remember, you are guests in their home. Besides, the sounds and noises you hear will only make the experience more memorable.
Each tent also comes with a fully-equipped, attached bathroom. You will be treated to hot water, complimentary toiletries, and clean bath linens. Some tents even have bathrooms with copper sinks! Not bad for camping. The African-themed decor adds a nice touch and cohesive feel.
No fussing with sleeping bags here! Tents come with comfy beds, clean linens, and enough blankets to keep you warm. The windows are covered by a flap; so, it could get a bit chilly at night. Not to fret, Safari West does a great job with providing tips on how to stay warm. Each tent also comes with a space heater and electric blankets.
You will find Safari West’s Savannah Cafe within a short walk from the tents. Overnight stays include complimentary continental breakfast. BBQ lunch and dinner are also available for purchase. Visitors may choose to dine indoors in the Elephant Room or Savannah Cafe. Outdoor dining is available on the veranda. Don’t forget, you’ll be in wine country. Local Napa and Sonoma wines as well as selections from California breweries are also available for purchase.
