San Diego Safari Zoo Safari Park, originally named the San Diego Wild Animal Park until 2010, is an 1,800-acre zoo in the San Pasqual Valley area of San Diego, California, near Escondido. It is one of the largest tourist attractions located in San Diego County. In the park you’ll discover herds of animals roaming the field, similar to their natural habitat. You can enjoy close-up contact with wildlife, few crowds, and long adventurous walks.


This animal attraction often puts you on the “inside” and the animals on the “outside”. San Diego Safari Park was established as a breeding facility for the zoo in 1972. Many of the herbivores wander free in large fields while you are confined to certain paths or trams. They mingle freely within herds of their own kind as well as with other species that they would encounter in the plains of Asia and Africa. Attractions that you can enjoy in this pack include:


  • -Trigger Trail
  • -Petting Kraal
  • -Africa Tram
  • -Lion Camp Savana Cool Zone
