A Vision Quest Safari Bed & Breakfast in Salinas Valley, California

Vision Quest Safari Bed & Breakfast in Salinas, CA
In 2001, the Vision Quest Ranch began offering an "alternative" means of over-nighting in the Monterey area. At the ranch, you can listen to the lions and tigers roaring only yards from your canvas walled hotel suite. Each African tent style bungalow is creatively decorated and equipped with comfortable furniture and complete bathroom facilities. They're basically "chic" canvas walled hotel suites with most of the comforts found in a luxury hotel suite. Wake to a continental breakfast delivered to your tent by the staff and one of our African elephants. In the afternoons, guests will enjoy visiting with the facility trainers on their evening walks with many of our Wild Things. Complete Story and Photos
