Malibu Wine Safari Tours takes guests on a journey through the 1,000 acre Saddlerock Ranch and vineyards in the gorgeous back hills of Malibu, allowing you to taste delicious wine and meet & feed adorable safari animals on the way. This year instead of buying things I didn’t need on Black Friday, one of my best friends and I decided to go on a Black Friday adventure instead. I had been to the beautiful Malibu Wines outdoor winery before with friends, but had on my bucketlist the Malibu Wines Safari tour for something fun and unique to do in LA.
My friend and I and a group of about 15 other people embarked on a fun 1.5 hour journey in a large, custom-built, open-air safari jeep. We chose the "Explorer Safari" tour for $65 each, which included a tasting of 6 different wines throughout various stops on the tour as well as adorable animals to see and feed. We got to meet some cute llamas (Michelle O'llama was my favorite furry friend!) and alpacas, a small family of zebras (the few week old baby was so adorable!), and some furry bison. Along the journey, our tour guide shared fun facts about the grounds, the history of Saddlerock family and ranch, and the stories of where the animals came from. Our tour didn't include meeting Stanley the Giraffe, but if it's within your budget, I'd recommend you add this on to your tour!
The tour was fun, the animals adorable, the wines tasty, and the scenery incredibly beautiful. This made for a wonderful post-Thanksgiving adventure, and I was so impressed by how beautiful and massive the rolling hills of vineyards were that supply wine directly to Malibu Wines. If you're looking for something fun and unique with a friend or family in town, I'd recommend you read more about the Malibu Wine Safari tours here - keep in mind that reservations are required in advance!
