This place is the best. It’s expensive but worth it. Note that thanks to the 2017 fires there’s not much restaurant wise close by so buying the meal may be a good idea.

We took afternoon safari tour and it was so much fun. All the animals and birds were so beautiful which made every penny worth. Would love to go again!

Safari West is a magical place. Closest I may get to Africa. The animals are exotic and well cared for. We spent two nights “camping” well glamping was more like it. I highly recommend it.

We stayed in a one room cabin that was very comfortable. They are not fancy accommodations but they are clean and roomy. Do not know much about the cottages. I am thinking they would be nice to stay in.

No, not at all. It just licked the perimeter but nothing happened in the park and all animals were safe. There is no fire damage in the park.
