Tucked in the beautiful hills of Malibu lives one of the best-kept secrets in all of Los Angeles County. Located on a 1,000 plus acre vineyard and ranch property, the Malibu Wine Safari provides a unique experience distinct from any other wine tasting venue.
Malibu Wine Safaris takes you on a ride throughout the property on their custom designed, stadium seated vehicles to enjoy the magnificent scenery, interact with their exotic animals, and of course enjoy their wine which is made from grapes from local vineyards. Some of the animals you can expect to see are water buffalo, bison, zebras, camels, alpacas, Stanley the giraffe, and many more. The tours allow you to get up close and personal with the animals (if you so choose) to feed them their liking of carrots, pellets, and bananas. The Safaris also take you to scenic spots throughout the property and allow time to explore and take pictures. Pictured below is one of the landmarks on the property which is also a crowd favorite on the tour. Wine or not, Malibu Wine Safari provides a fun-filled afternoon with friends and family alike.
The Safari offers six different versions of their excursion ensuring that one will be right for you. These include the Explorer Safari, Family Safari, Giraffe Safari, Vintner Safari, Mimosa Safari, and the Corporate/Group Safari.
After your Malibu Wine Safari, your day of fun in the sun does not have to end. Located on the same property as the safari is the Malibu Tasting room. Feel free to head on over there and continue to enjoy the wine and company of friends. There is no charge for admittance to the tasting room, however you must be 21 years of age and there is a minimum of one bottle purchase per group of 2-4 people. The tasting room does not serve food, however they allow any outside food as well as any non-alcoholic outside beverages.
