Dubbed the "Zoo of the Future," the 1,800-acre wildlife preserve mimics the natural habitats of African and Asian animals!
Explore the park aboard the narrated "Journey Into Africa" tour or get up close with their rare and exotic animal ambassadors.
Inspired by the African Serengeti and the endless expanses of the Asian plains, the San Diego Zoo's Wild Animal Park offers guests an exotic safari adventure unlike any other outside of Africa itself. The Park is home to more than 3,500 rare and exotic animals, most of whom roam freely in vast enclosures.
Witness a family of giraffe mingling among the gazelles and cranes while rhinos gather at a watering hole. Observe South African cheetahs lounging on a sunny hill or gaze into the eyes of the majestic California condor. Board the "Journey Into Africa" Tour for a 25-minute tour past herds of elephants, zebras, and several endangered species.
Venture into the dense forests and grassy savannas in the Heart of Africa, a 32-acre-safari trail. Miles of walking trails lead guests to overlooks of lions, tigers, and special encounters with exotic creatures. Stroll through Nairobi Village for shopping and dining.
The Park's newest naturalist exhibit, Lion Camp, gives park visitors an opportunity to come face-to-face with the big cats in a 2-acre savanna habitat. Lions are separated from visitors by a tempered glass panel and have resting spots in both hot and cold weather conveniently located just adjacent to the glass.
