The Heart of Africa is the largest, most exciting new development in San Diego Zoo Safari Park history. It invites you to experience an African style safari as you search for wildlife in the 30-acre habitat. The WAGASA Bush Line Monorail is an incredible 55 minute ride which takes you through Africa and Asia to see animals in the expansive, naturalistic enclosures of San Diego Zoo Safari Park.
Test your wildlife knowledge at the Animal Trackers show, and get up-close and personal with animals at various keeper talks throughout the day. With so much to see and do at San Diego Zoo Safari Park, you are sure to enjoy a day of fun and education for the whole family.
Some of the attractions at San Diego Zoo Safari Park include:
This interactive family show features life-sized "parade puppets," magic, and music to involve and entertain you as you help bring life-saving rain to the animals during this playful African folktale. Come join the fun and help bring the rain!
Test your knowledge of wildlife trivia as you play along during Animal Trackers, a new, interactive show at the Park. Held at Benbough Amphitheater, the game show-themed program includes visits from some very special animal guests. Come see how much you really know about animals!
Frequent Flyers Bird Show:
An East African crowned crane in flight is a stunning sight viewed by only a privileged few, until now! The crane is one of the stars of the Safari Park's all-new bird show, Frequent Flyers. Frequent Flyers offers spectacular flights and focuses on a variety of birds from around the world. You'll find this program engaging as you watch more birds free flying, offering a chance to see the feathered cast's natural talents. With over 40 different species and growing, no two shows will be the same. Frequent Flyers is full of great fun, natural history, fantastic stories, and, of course, lots of birds!
Meet a variety of critters and their trainers during these up-close-and personal talks throughout the Park. And always keep your eyes open, because you never know what wild thing may be making a surprise walk through (or flyby!).
You will be amazed by the way our keepers work with a 10,000-pound (4,500-kilogram) pachyderm, as elephants demonstrate behaviors that feature their strength, intelligence, and versatility.

The driver was knowlegeable. He was on time to pick us up at the Park. We saw a lot of Southern CA while heading over to get those who were at Legoland but not a big deal. The Safari Park is excellent. We had enough time there. The whole experience made for a great day. Thank you.

The experience at San Diego zoo Safari was excellent. The transport arrangement worked fine. But there was no add value other than provide the transport and drop and pick us up at the Safari park. For example they could have spoken about the highlights of the Safari park, the various options available there, like the balloon ride, different animal experiences, the various sections of the zoo etc. The travel time to the Park could have been utilized better.
