Set your own pace to see the animals in the San Diego Zoo Safari Park.

Take your pick of walking trails that lead to overlooks where you can observe lions, tigers and other exotic creatures. Venture into dense forests and grassy savannas along the safari trail in the Africa exhibit. Watch giraffe family mingle among the gazelles while rhinos gather at a watering hole. Observe South African cheetahs lounging on a sunny hill, or check out the majestic and endangered California condor.

Board the Africa tram for a 30-minute tour past herds of elephants, zebras and several endangered species. If you need to rest, head to Nairobi Village for dining and shopping options. With mobile tickets, simply scan your phone for direct entry into the Safari Park.
