San Diego Zoo

We love talking holidays and we're here to help. If you'd like our advice on how to create an amazing San Diego holiday, just give our Destination Specialists a call.

The absolutely immense San Diego Zoo is home to more than 3,700 animals from across 650 species and subspecies. Exhibits are grouped by habitat, including the African rainforest, the monkey trails, and an aviary.

A guided tour bus traverses the park and an overhead gondola lift transports you from one end of the zoo to the next. The zoo is housed in the even larger Balboa Park, a large, urban green space with gardens, 15 museums, a replica of Shakespeare's theatre, a carousel, and a miniature railroad.
