5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2017

In May 2016 me and my daughter went on a cross country trip to San Diego. While there we visited the San Diego Zoo Safari Park and we had the time of our lives. We took a tour and got to see and feed the rhino and giraffe. We saw lions and how they enter act with each other. One of the biggest tigers I've ever seen up close and pink flamingos. If you like the wildlife and coming real close to a African Safari I would recommend getting your feet wet with this great adventure. This is a trip I would take again!

This was the perfect time of the year to visit. Parking was easy, no crowds and the staff at each of the animal exhibits were friendly and full of inside information. The park was clean and well maintained. This is a must on your visit to San Diego.

Was wonderful! I have been a couple times before but this time took the Behind the Scenes Tour and would recommend it to everyone. Our guide was so pleasant, accommodating and informative! Loved seeing the baby lions up close!

This is a great place to visit. It's a bit different than a Zoo. The tram ride is fantastic and so informative.
Then all the exhibits are fabulous -- they have great food -- it's just a really nice day to spend. Again, can't see it all in just one visit. Go back again and again.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2013

Great park. The viator gave us discount ticket entry to the zoo, but we waiting in line to get tickets though. We added caravan ride to feed the giraffe and rhinos. Overall, I strongly recommend. I wish I had more time to see the cheetah run and ride on the tram. Tram had very long waiting line, maybe because it was Memorial Day. We left mid-day since we spend rest of day at Balboa and San Diego Zoo on same day.

There are a number of ways to visit this open area of Africa & Asia, as well as some more adventurous ways like the segways and flightline safaris to get the adrenalin pumping. But for the more senior visitors the cart safari or caravan safari are very enjoyable as well as informative, and the cheetah run is unbelievable - the speed of that animal!!!
