The San Diego Zoo and Safari Park is one of the most popular attractions in San Diego. It is often the first priority for families of all the places to visit in San Diego. It is one of the most fascinating zoos in the world and you should definitely plan an entire day dedicated just to exploring The Zoo. The key, of course, is planning as there is a plethora of exhibits and a myriad of activities you wouldn’t want to miss. Here is a brief guide to help you fully explore the San Diego Zoo Safari Park.

Make the most of San Diego Zoo Safari Park

The San Diego Zoo championed the cause of cageless exhibits, spearheaded by Dr. Harry M. Wegeforth, who also established the San Diego Zoological Society. There are more than three thousand seven hundred animals at the Zoo in natural enclosures. It is needless to point out that you should arrive as early as possible since many animals are active early in the day. You would not only have more time at your disposal but you will also be able to avoid the overcrowded hours while also getting the best animal viewing. Start with a bus tour. The queue is shortest in the first hour of the park’s opening.

You should consider visiting The Zoo on a day when it is not too hot. This doesn’t apply to the cooler months but the city can get quite hot through late spring and almost all of the summer. Stay cool, wear comfortable clothes, load up on sunscreen and put on your walking shoes. There is a considerably uneven terrain for you to tread. You can rent electric scooters and wheelchairs, at $45 and $12 respectively. They are available on a first come first serve basis so arriving early will guarantee you the convenience you want. You should also bring or rent a stroller if you have a toddler. You can rent single or double strollers for $12 and $16 respectively.

Don’t skip a ride on the Kangaroo Bus as kids will enjoy it. You should consider taking a guided bus tour, which should be included in your ticket price. You can even feed some animals along the way which is always a hit with the kids. Other imperative things to do are riding the aerial tram, ride the carousel or mini train.
