About a month after our wedding, my husband and I decided to to take a weekend trip away since our honeymoon had to be post-poned. We searched the web and decided it would be fun to go horseback riding. When we arrived at the American Safari Ranch, we were taken back by the authenticity of the place. It looked as...

These are the Rudest people we have ever come across at a business. We gave our credit card information to hold the reservation, but paid in cash when we arrived. The whole thing was screwed up. Our group had already left when we arrived. After they had called that morning to change the time on us. We were not late...

In regards to said client rides here are set up for small groups in order to provide a relaxing environment to enjoy our spectacular views. In this case one client arrived late and missed the scheduled ride. When you arrive late it is true that the ride may have already been sent out without you in order to accomodate the...

American Safari Ranch is THE place to go for the outdoors person. Rustic cabins and rooms right beside the beautiful rolling horse pastures. Wake up to the breath taking view of the Colorado Rockies! There are several outdoor activities available there at the ranch such as horseback riding, ATV riding, and fishing. They also have the facilities to have large...

After reading the reviews we decided to cancel our Reservation at the Ranch a full WEEK prior to our scheduled arrival and less than one day after making our Reservation. The first man I spoke with was cordial and professional. Then the owner (I assumed) called me back. True to the testimonies, this man was to most RUDE Host I...

Yes, what they advertise about no nose to tails is true but that's about as far as the truth goes... The people there are awful, most of the time you can't even understand what they're saying! The rooms are not even close to being worth the price they charge and you can't get a refund if anything goes wrong with...

This place is awful and the owners are worse! Me, and my boyfreind and another couple stayed here and paid $1000 dollars for three nights (which we were informed was in a cabbin, had breakfast, lunch, and dinner and a hunting guide for the two men. NONE of which held up to be true. We get into our disapointing room...

We have been in business for 25 years, taking care of 1,000's of guest happy and hunters. The hunters package is for hunters only, not family members. We feel we went above and beyond to allow your family members to stay for free. The arrangement was for two hunters to stay in one room; for the extra family members me...

The staff here are more rude than anything I have ever experienced. I would not recommend staying here unless you like to pay money to be tortured.
