Tips from locals
We are not generally a fan of zoos but this park feels more open than a zoo and much less crowded. There is a lot more space for the animals to roam and seems to be closer to a natural habitat for most. They advertise having 3500 animals so there is something for everyone. Book a caravan tour for…
If you happen to visit San Diego during the month of October, kids enter free in all San Diego zoo’s and museums.
The Safary Park is a beautiful destination for the whole family. Great views and shows. Always call first to confirm hours of operation.
Check out the zoo! Recommend going when it is first open in the morning or later on in the day. These times of day it will be coolest and the animals will be the most active.

“If you visit in the month of October children can sometimes go in for free with an adult paid ticket. Check their website to see if they are still offering this major discount. If you are looking to save yourselves a few bucks on food you can pack a lunch and take inside so you don't pay for overpriced meals and buy more souvenirs :)”
