San Diego Safari Park


San Diego Safari Park

At the San Diego Zoo Safari Park, species mingle a little bit like they do in their native Asia and Africa. That doesn't mean you're going to find lions roaming in the same enclosures with the zebras, but you will see multiple species of hoofed animals roaming in the same large area.

The San Diego Zoo Safari Park didn't start out as a tourist attraction. It actually began as a conservation facility.

Dozens of endangered species have been bred at the park and re-introduced into the wild. Fees from your visits help them continue that work.


Schedule
Open every day of the year, including all holidays.
9:00 am to 5:00 pm

World Gardens is closed due to construction work for Walkabout Australia, opening in Summer 2018. For information, visit sandiegozoo.org/walkabout/.

Things To Do

  • Africa Tram: This 30-minute trip may be the closest many of us will ever come to seeing wild critters in their natural environment. You may see deer and antelopes, giraffes, several kinds of rhinoceros, elephants and other types of wild creatures, all roaming in a large area. If you're anxious to see it when you first arrive, the boarding area is on the far side of the park.
  • Lorikeet Landing: Lorikeets are colorful birds slightly larger than a parakeet. Stop at the entrance to their enclosure to buy a cup of lorikeet nectar. Hold it in your hand, and the birds will sit on your finger and drink it up.
  • Nairobi Village: Here you'll find the Petting Kraal where you can get some hands-on time with the tamest critters and make a fuss over the babies in the San Diego Zoo Safari Park Nursery. There's also a daily bird show.
