San Diego Zoo Safari Park

The San Diego Zoo Safari Park is an expansive wildlife sanctuary that is home to more than 2,600 animals representing more than 300 species.

Located 30 miles north of downtown San Diego, over half of the Park's 1,800 acres have been set aside as protected native species habitat.

Formally known as the San Diego Wild Animal Park and not to be confused with the San Diego Zoo which is about 35-40 away from this park.
