Inspired by the African Serengeti and the endless expanses of the Asian plains, the 1,800-acre San Diego Zoo Safari Park offers you an exotic safari adventure unlike any other outside of Africa itself. San Diego Zoo Safari Park is home to more than 3,500 rare and exotic animals - most of whom roam freely in vast enclosures.

Choose between a 1-day ticket to the San Diego Zoo Safari Park or upgrade to a 2-visit pass which is valid for either a 2nd day at the Safari Park or a visit to the San Diego Zoo.
Witness a family of giraffe mingle 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 Africa tram tour for a 30-minute tour past herds of elephants, zebras, and several endangered species.

Venture into the dense forests and grassy savannas at 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.

Itinerary:
Africa Tram: An exciting expedition with brightly colored tour vehicles and our diverse animal collection creating a relaxing adventure. The ride path takes you around some of the field exhibits, giving you a chance to connect with the animals on a closer level.

Cheetah Run: Witness the fastest land mammal up close and personal doing what it does best: run! During Cheetah Run, watch as the sleek cat races on a straight 330-foot-long track that allows it to really stretch its legs and reach maximum speed of about 70 miles per hour.

Conservation Carousel: For kids and kids at heart, our colorful Conservation Carousel features 60 ride elements to choose from, many of which replicate rare and endangered animals. You can ride a giraffe, rhino, zebra, cheetah, and more—which will be your favorite? $3 per person for one ride or $6 per person for an all-day wristband.

Lorikeet Landing: Watch our colorful rainbow lorikeets swoop down to enjoy nectar offered by guests. Exhibit entrance is free; lorikeet food is available for purchase to experience the thrill of feeding these birds by hand.

Robert the Zebra: If you've ever wanted to have a conversation with a zebra—or even if it never crossed your mind—this is your chance! Robert the Zebra lives in digital, animated form on a large screen, where he can see the people who have come to visit. He asks questions, cracks jokes, talks about zebra life, and is very curious about humans. Chat with our interactive digital zebra in the Park's Discovery Station Amphitheater.

Fisher-Price Samburu Jungle Gym: Kids love to climb and explore in this safari-themed play area; parents love the shade-covered picnic area! Located below Benbough Amphitheater.

Discovery Station: This kid-friendly area is filled with musical instruments, puppets, books, craft activities, and wildlife "toys" and is designed to give children and their adult companions a playful space for animal-themed fun. Educators facilitate learning and activities every day during Park operating hours. You can stop by for an impromptu animal presentation or do a stone rubbing of your favorite animal footprint.

Frequent Flyers Bird Show: Watch as our avian stars soar over your head and perform other feats that showcase their amazing natural abilities! Located at Bird Show Amphitheater, between Gorilla Forest and African Woods.

Was wonderful! I have been a couple times before but this time took the Behind the Scenes Tour and would recommend it to everyone. Our guide was so pleasant, accommodating and informative! Loved seeing the baby lions up close!

This is a great place to visit. It's a bit different than a Zoo. The tram ride is fantastic and so informative.
Then all the exhibits are fabulous -- they have great food -- it's just a really nice day to spend. Again, can't see it all in just one visit. Go back again and again.
