San Diego Zoo Safari Park highlights

Africa Tram Safari – go on a 20-30 minute guided safari-like ride in a covered, open-air tram. Your tram ride will take you through the park’s African Savannah field to see the animals roaming around the grasslands. You'll see giraffes, rhinos, Cape buffalo, ostriches, gazelles, antelope, and more, and some animals might even come right up to your tram. Your guide will tell you all about their unique behaviors and the survival challenges they face in the world today. Head straight to the Africa Tram Safari when you get to the zoo, as wait times increase throughout the day. Busiest periods are between 11am and 3pm.

Elephant Valley – learn all about elephant care at this educational talk and demonstration in the park’s amphitheater.

Gorilla Exhibit – get up close to a large and active gorilla family peacefully interacting in their massive exhibit – one of the park’s most popular exhibits. Then see how you measure up next to an adult male gorilla at the gorilla activity center.

Lion Camp – get a peek into a lion’s den and watch the playful creatures run and interact in the 33,000-square-foot Lion Camp. Guests will also get a rare opportunity for a face-to-face encounter with lions. The Tull Family Tiger Trail experience puts visitors right into the world of colorful Sumatran tigers, providing a closer view of this remarkable species.

Tiger Trail – this winding trail takes you to some of the park's most popular exhibits on a guided walk through the bamboo forest – be sure to look around and you'll see several Sumatran tigers along the way. There's even an underwater viewing spot where you can watch them swim.

Walkabout Australia - this backcountry road is shaded by eucalyptus trees and brilliant red bottlebrush blooms waving to you in the breeze. Follow the path of the roo as you're transported Down Under to walk among kangaroos, wallabies, cassowaries and more.
