San Diego Zoo Safari Park
Step into an adventure at San Diego Zoo Safari Park, a 1,800-acre reserve where you can get up close and personal with wild animals. Herds of wildlife roam their natural habitats at the park: watch African elephants forage and play in Elephant Valley, and check out lions as they romp and lounge in the grasslands of Lion Camp. Large glass panels will even let you see eye-to-eye with the majestic beasts.
There’s no shortage of ways to immerse yourself in the safari experience. Hop aboard a brightly colored Africa Tram for a tour of the diverse animals in the field exhibits, or feed giraffes from the back of an open-air safari truck. The most adventurous animal lovers can even zipline over the Safari Park, getting a bird’s-eye view of the vast animal exhibits.
Exciting shows and hands-on exhibits get you right in on the action. Over at Tiger Trail, tiger keepers tell tales about their rare Sumatran charges. And at the Cheetah Run, cheetahs sprint down a 330-foot track, showcasing their impressive speed as they chase down mechanical toys. Expert guides are always on-hand to answer questions, teaching kids and adults alike about the importance of conservation.
