Safari was a name first applied to Pontiac's version of the 2-door Nomad station wagon. The body style, originally exhibited as a 1954 Chevrolet Corvette Motorama concept car, was shifted to Chevrolet and Pontiac full-size 1955 production vehicles because of the perceived greater sales potential.

After 1959, the name Safari was applied to Pontiac's full-size four-door station wagon vehicles in its Catalina, Executive and Bonneville ranges.


In 1989 the Safari was discontinued due to the decreasing popularity of full-size station wagons. Pontiac was rather delayed in this decision, as Chrysler produced its last full-size station wagon in 1977, Ford discontinued its Country Squire and Mercury Colony Parkwagons in 1991. The other GM wagons were the last to go with the Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser being discontinued after the 1992 model year, and finally the Chevrolet Caprice Wagon and the Buick Roadmaster Estate Wagon were discontinued in 1996. The Safari name lived on with the GMC Safari minivan, which largely served the same demographic as the Pontiac Safari.In 1990 the passenger and cargo space of the Safari was replaced largely by the Pontiac Trans Sport, their first Minivan.
