Safari West is a renowned 400-acre private wildlife preserve located in Sonoma County, California. As of 2017, Safari West had over 1000 animals of approximately 98 species. The selection of wildlife emphasizes species native to Africa, including giraffes, rhinoceros, cheetahs, zebras, hyenas, primates and numerous species of birds. The park engages in research, education, conservation, and breeding programs that, through exchanges with other zoos and parks, keep the gene pool healthy for the species that are involved in the program. The park is also home to species that are considered to be extinct in the wild. It is one of only six accredited private zoological facilities in the United States.
