From cuddly critters to creepy crawlies, the world-famous San Diego Zoo has them all. Located just north of downtown San Diego in Balboa Park, the Zoo offers 100 acres of exhibits and habitat for visitors to explore, more than 3,700 animals representing more than 650 species and subspecies, and a prominent botanical collection with more than 700,000 exotic plants. Our ticket includes use of the Guided Bus Tour, the Kangaroo Express Bus, the Children’s Zoo, the Skyfari aerial tram, and all general admission exhibits and shows.
Whether they’re furry or feathery, massive or miniature, sleek or slithery, camouflaged or colorful, when it comes to animals, the San Diego Zoo has just about everyone’s favorites. The Zoo’s amazing collection includes giant pandas, elephants, South African penguins, Galápagos tortoises, anacondas, Tasmanian devils, koalas, giraffes, gorillas, crocodiles, and polar bears—and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
You’ll find much to see and do here, and there are acres of rolling, scenic exhibit areas to explore. The San Diego Zoo is not only one of the world’s largest zoos, but it was recently voted “#1 Zoo in the World” by TripAdvisor.
The San Diego Zoo pioneered cageless exhibits way back in the 1920s, providing a more naturalistic way to see animals—and the Zoo’s advances in animal care, veterinary medicine, work with endangered species, and efforts to end extinction worldwide are legendary.
