San Diego Zoo

Since its humble beginning back in 1921, the San Diego Zoo has blossomed into one of the world’s top zoological parks. A must-see attraction for San Diego visitors, this zoo is much more than a collection of animals to gawk at. A trip to the San Diego Zoo is a priceless experience, an opportunity to get close to thousands of creatures from across the globe - big and small, common and extremely endangered.

Get an aerial view of the zoo from high atop the Skyfari tram. Learn about the zoo’s commitment to conservation. Catch the sea lion show and be ready to laugh out loud. And when it comes to special exhibits and events, this zoo really knows how to wow a crowd. More about SanDiego Zoo
