Go wild at the world-famous San Diego Zoo. More than 3,700 animals live in the vast park in San Diego’s leafy Balboa Park. The zoo was one of the pioneers in the concept of open-air, cageless exhibits with the animals allowed to roam, romp and roar in an environment that closely resembles their natural habitat.
Board the double-decker tour bus that weaves through most of the park and get to know the creatures that call the zoo home. See endangered giant pandas from China (San Diego Zoo has successfully bred pandas) and learn more about these bamboo-munching cuddly giants in the interactive exhibits. Hit the sprawling Australian Outback area to see the koalas, wombats and wallabies. Slither over to the Reptile House to observe pythons, boas and Gila monsters.
Don’t anger the endangered Komodo dragon from Indonesia, which is the largest living lizard in the world with 60 flesh-tearing teeth and a forked tongue. Dive into the Northern Frontier, a spectacular habitat for Arctic animals including polar bears, reindeer, a variety of birds and Arctic foxes. Wander along Lost Forest, which leads to a tiger’s lair and other surprises while Gorilla Tropics recreates an African rainforest. Winged creatures abound in the Owens Rain Forest Aviary with more than 200 birds living in this replica of a southeast Asian jungle. If you are inspired to take flight, hop aboard the Skyfari aerial tram. You will get a bird’s eye view of the World Famous San Diego Zoo.
