  • Incredibly friendly and knowledgeable staff. Tent cabins fun, though if you are a light sleeper bring earplugs, it is a symphony at night! Food was surprisingly decent as they feed you more like a barbecue buffet than anything else. The meats-ribs, chicken, etc are actually very good! Older elementary kids and up, are a perfect age for the tours.
  • So disappointed! Only a handful of animals on the property. Several in old small cages. Bird aviary tour is short, but I like birds. Our tour guide, Sara did a great job. She was very knowledgeable about the few animals on the property and their history. The park's tour bus fumes will almost kill you they are so strong. No walking by yourself in Safari West. You'd be better off going to your local zoo.
