My wife and I visited San Diego Safari Park in September while I was attending a local convention.
We flew from New Jersey and next day took the shuttle to the Park. The weather was beautiful and
the safari park was excellent. The only complaint was the unhelpful attitude from the customer desk
at Santa Fe train depot. But we're thankful to a couple tourists who helped us locate the shuttle.
Yes, the Safari Park is worth the trip even flying from East Coast.

This was a wonderful experience. Make sure you have good hiking shoes as you will be doing a lot of walking. There are plenty of resting spot to view the animal. Get a snak or just relax and enjoy the day.

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.
