Gate Prices Adult $52.00

Lions lounge in the grasslands, while rhinos cool off in a muddy watering hole, and herds of antelope roam out in the open. Tigers relax in a leafy glade near a cooling waterfall, and an elephant herd enjoys a refreshing dip in a large pond, as tall giraffes browse for fresh green leaves in the treetops. You can go on safari to see all of this—with no passport necessary—at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park.

The Safari Park is home to more than 2,600 animals, representing more than 300 species. Step aboard the Africa Tram Safari for a quick trip around the Park, or take a closer look on your choice of additional safari adventures.

There is much to explore here: in addition to the many scenic field enclosures and exhibit areas, half of the Safari Park’s 1,800 acres have been set aside as protected native species habitat.

The Safari Park’s incredible Lion Camp features a naturalistic exhibit with panoramic views of lions lounging in their scenic habitat. The 33,000-square-foot enclosure provides guests an opportunity to experience a rare face-to-face encounter with lions.

The Tull Family Tiger Trail experience brings visitors into close proximity to beautiful endangered Sumatran tigers, and lets you get a taste of life in their rain forest habitat. This remarkable visitor experience took the Association of Zoos and Aquariums’ 2015 top honors for exhibit design.

Board one of the park’s trams, and hit the trails to get up-close-and-personal with wildlife. Your guide will spend time pointing out the various animals and habitats you’re seeing, and will share their individual stories, their survival challenges, and unusual facts about their lives. Cruise the Park’s large field exhibits, and gaze upon herds of curious giraffes, Cape buffalo, ostriches, African cranes, rhinos, gazelles, and antelope as they strut across their grassland habitats.

Upon returning to “base camp,” finish off your day meandering through the rest of the Park’s stunning habitats and paying a visit to the other mammals, reptiles, and birds that call the world-famous San Diego Zoo Safari Park home!
