What you can expect

Immerse yourself in the animal kingdom at the 100-acre (40-ha) San Diego Zoo, home to more than 4,000 animals across 800 rare and exotic species. Spend quality time with koalas, New Zealand kiwis, endangered sun bears, and Galápagos tortoises—the zoo’s oldest residents.

At the Polar Bear Plunge, get an up-close underwater view of these iconic Arctic bears as they swim and play. Visit Gorilla Tropics, one of the zoo’s bioclimatic zones, where the sights and sounds of a tropical rainforest closely mimic the African lowland gorilla’s natural habitat.

In Australian Outback, see cuddly koalas, laughing kookaburras and fierce Tasmanian devils. Don't skip Africa Rocks, home to penguins, baboons, leopards, and the mysterious fossa.

If your feet need a rest, board one of the open-air double-decker buses for a 35-minute narrated tour around many of the zoo's best exhibits, take the Kangaroo Bus and hop on and off at 5 different stops, or snag a bird’s-eye view of the entire grounds with a high-flying ride on the Skyfari® Aerial Tram (subject to availability).

Discover the wonders of wildlife with animal encounters, interactive experiences, and exciting animal presentations and shows. A leader in animal care and conservation, the San Diego Zoo is at the heart of the San Diego experience. Hope to see you soon!
