About this San Diego tour
Touted as one of the world’s best zoos, the San Diego Zoo isn’t just a location; it’s an experience. On this adventure, prepare to be dazzled by exotic, rare animals of all shapes and sizes. There are things to do and see that you won’t see anywhere else. The family-friendly fun and learning await you here.
The San Diego Zoo is known for being the pioneers of cageless animal exhibits that bring spectator and animal closer together. They expertly simulate an animal’s native habitat for a truly innovative wildlife experience. On this tour, you will also discover how conservation efforts are protecting animals locally and worldwide.
Travel along walkways and bridges as you see animals from every continent in the world at the zoo. Coo over the cute koalas at the Outback area of the zoo. Try not to feel too frightened upon seeing the largest lizard in the world, the Komodo dragon, at the Reptile House. See the colorful feathers of the macaw at the Children’s Zoo located within the San Diego Zoo. A zoo tour isn’t complete without visiting the massive elephants found at the Elephant Odyssey area. The world’s top ecosystems are masterfully represented throughout the zoo: savannas, deserts, tropical rainforests, and frozen tundras. There are activities and visually stunning exhibits at every corner of the zoo!
Experience the cuddly giant pandas at the Giant Panda Research Station, where you can find one of the best panda breeding programs in the world. You’ll fall head over heels in love with Bai Yun, Gao Gao, and Xiao Liwu, three giant pandas that are one of the top attractions at the zoo. You can even climb into their den to greet them at the Panda Canyon for an unforgettable experience.
You’ll receive entrance to the Children’s Museum with your paid ticket. This family-friendly portion of the tour features exhibits and activities especially designed for the little ones.
