Safari is the same microfiber as the original. They really only have the two different materials, Microfiber and shag.
There is also a new Decor line with some other cool colors. I have the Aubergine one. I prefer the microfiber because the plush side is shorter. But if you want your throe a little more fluffy go with the shag! Whichever you go with, you'll be so happy you got one. They are awesome!
