Home for over 800 exotic animals.
Nestled on 400 acres in the heart of California's wine country, Safari West is home for over 800 exotic mammals and birds. Not a zoo, not a drive-through park, it's a wildlife preserve where the whole family can experience some of nature's most beautiful animals in a natural habitat.
Established by Peter Lang in 1989, Safari West gained membership in the American Zoo and Aquarium Association, one of very few private facilities in North America to belong to that prestigious organization. The ongoing mission of Safari West is wildlife preservation through breeding, education, research and public interaction.
But Safari West is more than a preserve, also dedicated to raising awareness of our exotic neighbors and promoting understanding through in-person contact. Safari West offers safaris year-round. If your only experience with a zebra or giraffe has been at a zoo, you should see these beautiful animals in their natural habitat. You owe it to yourself, and to them.
