The San Diego Wild Animal Park is about 25 years old and lets you discover animals roaming free in huge natural enclosures. There are many endangered, exotic and rare species here and you can actually touch and feed a giraffe or a rhino.

You don’t really have to travel all the way to Africa to enjoy the wildlife! If you get on the Wagasa Bush Railway for a 55-minute 5-mile tour you get an incredible sight of herds of elephants, zebras and giraffes. You can even go on a trek through the ‘Heart of Africa’ which is a 32-acre adventure safari simulating the dense forests and grassy savannahs of Africa. This is a newly introduced section in the Wild Animal Park.

What can you see at the Wild Animal Park? The Lion Camp – where you can see a pride of lions – watching over the other animals on the East Africa plains. You can catch a few pictures really close to the Lions.

The Condor Ridge has a dozen species of birds, mammals and reptiles. You can see desert bighorn sheep, aplomado falcons and vibrantly green thick-billed parrots. As you stroll through Lorikeet Landing, you experience the rainforests of Australia, which is the natural habitat of the beautiful rainbow lorikeet. Nairobi Village an active village with shops, restaurants, animal exhibits and activity centers. You can touch the animals in the Petting Kraal. Kids especially love this. You can buy food pellets and feed the animals here.

Because of the park’s size, you can have a great walking experience through the Kilimanjaro Safari Walk.
The San Diego Wild Animal Park is an accredited botanical garden, and has a diverse and extensive collection of plants.
