Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

For a fun, fascinating adventure featuring feathers and fur, embark on this full-day self-guided excursion to see the world-renowned San Diego Zoo!

Board an air-conditioned motorcoach at your pier and set out on a brief drive to the breathtaking Balboa Park, the nation's largest urban cultural park. At a lush 1200-acres, it is home to 15 major museums, renowned performing arts venues, beautiful gardens and of course, the San Diego Zoo.

Step off the bus and step into a world of natural wonder! Reptiles, birds, mammals, amphibians, insects and plants - the San Diego Zoo has it all! Home to over 4,000 rare and endangered animals representing more than 800 species and subspecies as well as a stunning botanical collection with more than 700,000 exotic plants, this 100-acre zoo is a living classroom that entertains and educates.

With so much to see, you have several options as to how to take it all in. Enjoy a leisurely, guided double-decker bus tour past major highlights. For a bird's eye view, ride the Skyfari aerial tram above the lush treetops and open-air exhibits. And of course, you can always stroll through the verdant grounds, observing the animals and reading about them at your own pace. How else will you learn exactly what a tamandua is?

An urban paradise for all ages, the San Diego Zoo is a must-see in Southern California. You can spend the day monkeying around in a tropical oasis as you visit amazing habitats for animals such as gorillas, tigers, sun bears, flamingos, mandrills, polar bears, birds of paradise, giant tortoises, leopards and more. Go back in time through Elephant Odyssey to discover what animals used to roam Southern California and to see a herd of Asian elephants. Discover the wonders of wildlife with animal encounters, interactive experiences, and keeper presentations. A leader in animal care and conservation, the San Diego Zoo is at the heart of the San Diego experience.

Founded in 1916, the Zoo has been an icon in San Diego for nearly 100 years. Located adjacent to downtown San Diego in Balboa Park, the Zoo is 100 acres in size and is home to more than 4,000 animals representing more than 800 species from around the world. We suggest taking the Guided Bus Tour upon your arrival to acquaint yourself with the various areas where you would like to spend additional time. The Zoo is a unique walking experience that exhibits animals in the most natural way possible, adding shows and animal presentations throughout the day for additional enjoyment.
