The San Diego Safari Park is the 1,800 acre park in the San Pasqual Valley of San Diego, established in 1972. This institution is one of the largest tourist attractions in the county and houses a large array of wild and endangered animals from all around the world, including Africa, Asia, Europe, North and South America, and Australia. This extremely fun and informative safari park is also widely known for its quarantine zoo center (only 32 miles from San Diego Zoo), as well as for being the largest veterinary hospital in the entire world! The San Diego Safari Park is located in a semi-arid environment and holds over 2,600 animals representing over 300 different species who call it home. There is also over 3,500 plant species within the boundaries here.
Once here your group will see why two million visitors pass through these gates annually, as you explore all the park has to offer. One of the most popular features is the Africa Tram, a vehicle that explores the expansive Africa exhibits that include beautiful antelopes, giraffes, rhinos, and cranes. You can also see the most successful California Condor Breeding Program or head over to the different safari tours offered. Your group will have the tough choice of choosing between the Behind the Scenes Safari, Cheetah, Roar and Snore, or Ultimate, plus many, many more! The Ultimate Safari gives guests thrills, exclusivity, and up close and personal animal interaction, the perfect balance of all offered safari tours. Be sure to stop by the gift shop or Safari Park cafe before you go to grab a bite to eat or find that perfect San Diego souvenir!
