An urban paradise for all ages, the San Diego Zoo is a must-see in Southern California. Spend the day monkeying around in the 100 acre, tropical oasis as you visit amazing habitats for animals such as gorillas, tigers, sun bears, flamingos, mandrills, polar bears, birds of paradise, giant tortoises, leopards and more.
Take a Panda Trek to visit the giant pandas and other animals that share their bamboo forest habitat. Go through Elephant Odyssey to see elephants, lions, California condors and more. Feeling brave? Visit the reptile and insect houses in Discovery Outpost. Of course, there's also the Petting Paddock, Children's Zoo and other learning activities in Discovery Outpost too! See animals from the land down under in the Outback then head up to see the polar bears and arctic foxes in the Northern Frontier.
Enjoy a guided tour on a double-decker bus or an aerial view from Skyfari, dine in the peaceful surroundings of Albert’s Restaurant, and see animals up close in the Children's Zoo. Discover the wonders of wildlife with animal encounters, interactive experiences, and keeper presentations. A leader in animal care and conservation, the San Diego Zoo is at the heart of the San Diego experience.
