Safari West: Santa Rosa, CA, 3 nights
Type: Luxury Tented Camp

Description: In the heart of California's wine country, in the field of wheat-colored grass, on the slopes of rolling green hills, among the trees and ranches and vineyards is where you will find the essence and spirit of Africa. Come through the gate and be transported into an exotic new world. Safari West is a nonsmoking facility. Smoking is permitted in only one location. This area is between the barbecue area in the outdoor patio and Delilah’s Café. If it is determined that you have been smoking outside this specific area, a charge of $300 will be added to your final total.
