Earth Day is coming to Safari West and there’s no better place to appreciate the beauty of planet Earth than right here on the Sonoma Serengeti!

This year, we focus our attention on the amazing variability of this big, blue planet of ours. Whether on the ground, in the sky, or in the sea, we humans and our animal neighbors find ways to occupy every possible environment. This Earth Day, we’ll have interactive displays scattered around the property exploring these relationships and how we can learn from them to achieve a more sustainable future.

Since you’ll be at Safari West, you’ll also be able to see some examples of these interactions live and in person. Explore our lower grounds where exotic birds, monkeys, and lemurs frolic and play and when you’ve finished that, climb aboard the Nairobi minibus and enjoy a forty-five minute trek tour. This guided excursion takes you through the Gazelle Pasture where giraffes and antelope play and then onward to meet the massive white rhinoceros and our phenomenal Watusi!

This April, celebrate Earth Day where two distant corners of the planet collide! Africa and California come together in the spirit of sustainability right here at Safari West!

The Safari West Nairobi bus ventures out to explore herds of Giraffe and antelope, Long-horned Cattle, and our awe inspiring Southern White Rhinos! Trek loops last for 35-40 minutes and so are great for even the youngest members of your herd!

Hop on the Nairobi Bus for a quick driving tour and then explore the lower grounds and discover cheetahs, monkeys, exotic birds and more! Starting at 10:00 am, the Nariobi bus will depart every 45 minutes (10:00/10:45/11:30/12:15/1:00/1:45/2:30/3:15). Only 20 seats available for each loop so reserve your spot today! Book your trek before arriving!A special Earth Day lunch is included (menu below). Lunch starts at 11:30 am and ends at 2:30 pm.

When to Arrive:
We ask that you arrive and check in at least 15-minutes prior to the scheduled start of your trek. This additional time allows for restroom use and the tour guide assignment process. The treks leave promptly at their scheduled times.
