I used to think that you could only find California vineyards in the northern part of the state – such as Napa Valley and Sonoma. For those who aren’t originally from California, most would never assume there’d be a vineyard in Malibu. When we think if Malibu, the first things that come to mind are beach side mansions, but not vineyards. We can guarantee the very last thing, besides a vineyard, that anyone would expect to be in Malibu is a safari with animals such as a giraffe, bison and zebras – among many others! Well, let us enlighten you – there is a a vineyard AND a safari. That’s not the best part though. The best is that they both come as a packaged deal! A 2-for-1 – The Malibu Wine Safari!
Oh yes, you read it right. A Malibu Wine Safari that is exactly what it sounds like it is – sipping wine through the vineyards while feeding exotic animals! Does it get any better? I didn’t think so. Malibu Wine Safaris takes adventurers on tours around Saddlerock Ranch to learn about the history behind the region, the ranch, and its amazing wines. This classy adventure that takes place on about 1,000 acres. You’ll stop in scenic areas throughout the safari for delicious wine pairings.
