I liked your article about Safari West very much ["In Wine Country, Savoring a Hint of Africa," Weekend Escape, April 3]. I have been to Safari West a couple of times, and you left out some details that could have made the story better. The first detail is Catfish Lake. Some nights you can feed them, and they come right up to the surface so you can see them try to get the food. The second detail you left out was Delilah, the horn-billed bird. Delilah's wings are clipped so she cannot fly away.

One of life's great pleasures, it turns out, is watching from the front porch as baby giraffes gambol through lush pasture. Safari West, a 400-acre spread in Santa Rosa, might be the only spot on this continent where I could have discovered this particular joy. It's the only African animal preserve in the U.S. with a tent camp where you can be lulled to sleep by the calls of ring-tailed lemurs. It's a world apart from the experience most of us have with African wildlife.

The experts at Six Flags Marine World don't know if the baby will be a boy or a girl--but they do know it will be big. Tests have confirmed that Tika, a 23-year-old African elephant, is pregnant, the amusement park said Friday. And park officials say the biggest news is how Tika got pregnant. "This is an exciting day for us," said David Blasko, the park's director of animal operations and its elephant training supervisor for more than two decades. "A pregnant elephant is big news by itself.

TREK through Cappadocia and cruise the Turquoise Coast on a 10-night tour of Turkey that is scheduled to begin March 26. "The trip is special because it combines two really spectacular areas of Turkey," said Tricia Dowhan of Country Walkers. "It's almost like an outdoor museum for our guests to walk through." The group will walk from village to village in Cappadocia and visit the Outdoor Museum in Goreme.

Talk about Dad Rock: "One Track Mind," the sophomore album (out digitally Tuesday) from L.A. trio Something for Rockets, features a guest turn from front man Rami Perlman's father -- violin virtuoso Itzhak Perlman. "He's been our No. 1 fan from Day 1," Rami says. "When writing the record, I kinda knew I wanted him to be involved." Enter the wistful song "Same Old Thing," which Rami describes as "like a Puccini aria, almost schmaltzy on some level." In L.A.

It was the sort of pitch a producer likes to hear: an array of locations available for filming, cooperation from government bureaucrats vowing to make shoots go smoothly, even potential tax breaks as a financial incentive. It is the kind of marketing that has worked so well for North Carolina, Vancouver, Australia and the myriad other places throughout the world that have successfully lured away big chunks of film and TV production from Hollywood.

For a month, the baby was alone in her new home. She didn't smile. She seemed sad. Now, 4-month-old Zoe is chortling up a storm and trying to swing from a trapeze. With two other baby chimpanzees--who tickle her and tug at her big ears--Zoe is thriving in the Los Angeles Zoo nursery, where she has lived since her mother abandoned her at Lion Country Safari in West Palm Beach, Fla. (She endured a one-month quarantine while veterinarians kept watch.

Across the board, shipboard dress codes have relaxed considerably, but this does not mean jeans and T-shirts. The fashion police are still aboard many ships, and you may get stares or frowns if you turn up for dinner wearing the wrong kind of casual. The new casual, also called "resort evening wear" or "country club casual," usually consists of open-necked linen or silk shirts and slacks for men and dressy pantsuits, caftans or silk and linen separates for women.
