Hello and welcome to the forum! :)

Please provide information on the OS X installed and also what you are asking about? I'm assuming that the Safari icon has disappeared from your dock at the bottom - correct?

If so, go into Finder -> Applications and see if the Safari app is shown there (see my screenshot); if so, simply drag the app's icon to your dock - let us know if this helps. Dave

Safari should be available in your Applications folder. As far as I know, you also can't delete it (someone please correct me if I'm wrong - I'm away from my Mac and working off of memories here). When did it disappear?

No vansmith you are correct (as per usual). Attempting to remove brings up the 'Part of OS X'.

You're not going to see it in System Preferences anyway. Where exactly are you looking?

Ah, good to know that I wasn't imagining things. ;)
