Safari Trek-&-Treat on the Sonoma Serengeti!

Before you go out to Trick-or-Treat, you and yours should come to Trek-and-Treat at the Safari West Halloween Spook-tacular! As always, kids in costumes will be the recipients of oohs and ahhs and a Safari West goodie bag when they visit our Conservation Pumpkin Patch!

While you’re visiting the pumpkin patch you can also purchase a pumpkin for yourself, or one to donate to our animals! Pumpkins make great enrichment items and whether the animals play with them, eat them, or smash them to smithereens, they sure do love these big orange gourds! Either way, the money spent will be donated to the amazing Vulture Conservation Foundation who work to protect some of the world’s most amazing and least appreciated .
