San Diego Zoo
An urban paradise for all ages, the San Diego Zoo is a must-see in Southern California. Winding paths through the tropical oasis of a botanical garden bring you to more than 4,000 rare and fascinating animals, including giant pandas, great apes, Komodo dragons, tigers, flamingos, polar bears, eagles, koalas, and more. Africa Rocks (opening in 2017) is home to penguins, baboons, and the mysterious fossa. The festive, lively atmosphere makes the San Diego Zoo a great place for family fun and gathering friends. Discover the wonders of wildlife with animal encounters, interactive experiences, and exciting animal presentations and shows. A leader in animal care and conservation, the San Diego Zoo is at the heart of the San Diego experience. Hope to see you soon! Website: zoo.sandiegozoo.org.
