Why Create a Safari Theme Nursery?
If you love safari animals and the idea of a safari nursery, it can be a great theme because safari animals are somewhat gender-neutral.
Just picture a room with grey elephants, monkeys, lions, and giraffes. Not to mention all of the vibrant colors that come with a safari theme. So, whether you’re having a boy or girl, safari animals can be a great choice for your nursery.
How to Create a Safari Nursery Theme
There are many different ways to create a safari nursery. You can use animal prints, safari colors, and safari décor to get the look you want.
Here are some ideas to get you started:
Safari Nursery Walls
For the walls, consider using a safari wallpaper border or mural. You could also paint an animal scene on one or more of the walls. For example, you might want to have safari wallpaper on three walls and a large mural or decal as a feature wall.

Wall decals depicting safari animals and trees would create a great safari-themed room. You could also use stickers of safari animals or trees.

If you’re feeling adventurous, try a stencil of a safari animal or scene on one of the walls. That would be great. However, if you want something already designed there are plenty of nursery room wall stickers out there to choose from.

Safari Themed Nursery Furniture
When it comes to furniture, you can go with safari-themed pieces and safari nursery decor or simply add some safari touches to otherwise normal furniture.
Exploring nature and animal wall arts is another creative way to create a safari theme. Versatile options like colorful lion wall arts capture a lot about the animal kingdom to give a lift to the safari–theme room. They also add a bright glow and elegance to the general appearance.
Here are some great safari-themed pieces of furniture:
Safari Changing Table
If you get a changing table for your safari nursery, consider one that has animals on it or at least features safari colors. You could also look for a Safari changing mat like the one below.

The Baby Crib and Bedding

A safari crib is a great choice for a safari nursery. It can be as simple as having animals or trees painted on it, or you can go with an actual safari-themed crib that has fabrics and designs featuring safari animals and landscapes.
A lion or elephant blanket would look great in your little ones’ crib. Have a search online to find cute safari bed sheets and bedding.

Safari Themed Animal Print Rug
When it comes to picking out the best furniture pieces for your safari-themed nursery, consider picking ones that are safari-like in color or theme. For example, you could use an animal print rug as a floor mat.
Having a nursery rug is a great idea because it makes the floor more comfortable for the baby. It could also help keep your child warm at night or even be used as a soft play area during the day.

Safari Animals for the Nursery

Soft safari animals like lions, elephants, and monkeys can provide hours of fun and safari-themed exploration.
You could also choose to have a few larger safari animals as part of your nursery décor. A large giraffe, lion, or elephant would look great in your safari nursery and I’m sure there are plenty of deals online to find the perfect large plush to go with your space.

If you love safari books, why not create a safari bookcase to house them all.
For this idea, you could use safari-colored paint or stencils of safari animals to finish off the job.
You could even go all out and make it look like a real safari tree! Choose your favorite safari and jungle-themed books for toddlers and have fun choosing a collection of stories to read with your little one as they grow.

Safari Themed Curtains and Window Treatments
If you’re looking for window treatments to match your safari nursery, there are many options to choose from. You could use colored curtains with animal prints on them.
You might also want to consider using safari-themed valances, drapes, or blinds. Look at the different price ranges and choose something which is budget-friendly and good quality so it will last a long time.
Adding themed touches to your nursery’s window treatments is a great way to complete the safari look in your child’s room.
This could add style to the mix and different colors can add pop to give your room the charm you desire. You might even like some Giraffe tie backs to go with plain curtains.

Safari Themed Accessories
There are many accessories that you can use in your nursery to create the style and look you are going for. You can find safari lamps, saucers, wastebaskets, and more.
You can also find animal-themed wall art, mobiles, and clocks.
Be sure to choose accessories that match the specific look you’re going for in your nursery.
Do some research before you go shopping so you have a good idea of the nursery style you want to create.
Safari Themed Nursery Mobile
Consider purchasing safari animals for your nursery mobile. You could have musical, plush safari animals, or simply stuffed lions, elephants, and giraffes.
If you do purchase a musical mobile for your baby’s room, throw some safari animal sound effects on it so you can choose between hearing jungle sounds or safari noises.
Just imagine a safari mobile hanging over the crib with cute elephants, a monkey, a giraffe, and a lion. This would be so super cute for any gender baby to enjoy. It would look great in a baby boy or girl’s nursery.

Safari Table Lamp
If you want to add a lamp to your safari theme nursery, a table lamp would be a great option. You could also use a lantern or even safari-themed string lights.
A table lamp is useful for feeding times when your little one is younger and a night light can be useful for when they are older.

Safari Wall Art
There are plenty of super cute safari wall art pieces out there to use for your safari nursery. You could have safari paintings, safari animal decals, and these make adorable additions to the safari decor in your baby’s room.
You could even have safari paintings mounted on the wall in your safari nursery to create a safari-themed focal point in the room.
You can find reasonably priced wall art on Etsy so I’d recommend shopping on that site as it’s often budget-friendly and cheaper than a physical shop. one advantage to finding wall art on Etsy is you can buy cute digital prints and you don’t have to pay for shipping.
A Safari Name Sign
Name signs are a popular nursery item and can be personalized with your baby’s name.
You could purchase a safari-themed name sign to hang over the crib or changing table in your safari nursery.
If you want to get creative, you could even make your own safari-themed name sign. Just imagine a cute giraffe-themed sign or a wild monkey sign on the door of your safari nursery.
