San Diego Zoo
With more than 4,500 mammals, reptiles, birds, insects, and amphibians, the World Famous San Diego Zoo is a must see attraction in San Diego. Embrace your adventurous side as you observe these unique animals in their natural habitats while strolling along the Zoo’s paths surrounded by exotic plants. You’ll discover monkeys, hippos, and tigers in the Lost Forest, polar bears and reindeer at the Polar Rim, and camels and koalas at the Outback.
Get your bearings with a bird’s eye view as you glide over the tree tops of the Park on the Skyfari Aerial Tram. Then, be sure to check out Elephant Odyssey, where you can see playful elephants and learn about the fossil record with a simulated tar pit. Also, you don’t want to miss Panda Canyon, home to the Zoo’s famous pandas! Watch these cuddly creatures lounge in bamboo trees as you learn all about them from a panda expert.
