Safari West Santa Rosa CA. No trip to wine country would be complete without giraffe's, gazelles and water buffalo, oh, my! Where Bruce found this place is a mystery I don't have to think about anymore. We met Helene, a couple of giraffe's (who didn't sneeze in his face) and assorted birds and other cool animals. We have now done serious animal planet adventures in more than a dozen states. I never knew this kind of place existed close to home.
