San Diego Wild Animal Park

One of the most popular and famous amusement parks in Southern California, and San Diego especially, is the San Diego Wild Animal Park in Escondido, CA. Now known as the San Diego Zoo Safari Park, this beautiful and expansive open-air zoo features exhibits of wild and endangered species from Asia, Africa, Europe, Australia, and both North and South America in authentic habitats. Visitors can watch condors breed, rhinos feed, and antelope gallop freely across over 1,800 acres of space. Some of the most popular exhibits include the cheetahs, lions and giraffes.

  • Experience the incredible speed of the fastest land animal, the cheetah, by watching the Cheetah Run exhibit at the San Diego Wild Animal Park, where the majestic beast reaches speeds of up to 112 kph in only 4 seconds.
  • View the animals from a different perspective by taking a ride on the Flightline Safari zip line, which soars above rhinos, deer, and the beautiful Escondido, CA countryside.
  • Spend the night and camp in the park; the Roar and Snore Safari camping adventure in Escondido, CA offers kids a chance to witness the creatures at all hours.

Escondido, CA has a serviceable public transportation system, but it is recommended for visitors to rent a vehicle or use a private car to reach the San Diego Wild Animal Park; it is set off in a rather secluded area—51 kilometres from the San Diego Zoo site—and is most easily reached by private transport. Many rental car agencies are available through the San Diego Airport. It is possible to reach the zoo using public transportation, by taking the 350 Breeze bus to the 353 and exiting at Myers Street, then walking roughly 2 kilometres to the entrance.
