They call it the Sonoma Serengeti and it might be California Wine Country's best kept secret. It’s a wildlife preserve that’s home to over 700 animals, like giraffes, flamingos, buffalo, and antelopes. And in this surprise setting, a West Coast getaway beckons that’s unlike anywhere else in the state. Glamping (read: glamorous camping) has arrived in Northern California, and it’s an experience that’s absolutely within your reach.
The safari tents at Safari West, a 400-acre property close to Santa Rosa, are made of durable canvas and have a private bathroom, windows, wood floors, plush beds and a private patio. Think of it like a luxury hotel without room service and with the calls of the wild to sing you to sleep at night. With this deal, you can stay for $189 per night from Sunday through Thursdays and $209/night on Fridays. That's almost a third off standard rates. Family cabins, which include bunk beds, are available for an additional $40/night, based on availability. This deal includes a continental breakfast for two and discounts on guided safari tours in an open-air vehicle. (Adults get $10 off and kids get $5 off; kids must be over the age of four to participate.) Parking is complementary.
This deal is good through for the months of March and May, except for March 5 and 19, and May 7, 14, 19, 26, and 28. For more information and to book, click here.
