As part of an outstanding photo workshop in Santa Rosa with Derrick Story ( www.TheDigitalStory.com ) we visited Safari West outside of town for a tour.
Nestled on 400 acres in the heart of California’s wine country, Safari West is home for over 400 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 only six 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. www.SafariWest.com
Here a a few photos of the grounds which were peaceful and serene.
