The 100-acre Zoo is home to over 4,000 rare and endangered animals representing more than 800 species and subspecies, and a prominent botanical collection with more than 700,000 exotic plants. It is located just north of downtown San Diego in Balboa Park.
Pay extra for a behind the scenes tour. Early access panda tour gives access during feeding time before zoo opens. Includes access to parts of zoo normally off limits and golf cart tour of whole zoo.
It's huge. So huge
I saw koalas, kangaroos & an okapi and most importantly a panda in just a couple of hours. If U ❤️ animals, visit the zoo!
Oh my gosh it is phenomenal!
2-3 hours minimum. Don't waste time on bus tour. Just walk and keep your tickets.
Fun Day well spent!
Get there early and avoid the crowds.
Take the Skyfari!
Take a ride on the cable car, it's great fun!
Do the skyfari!
The best of The best!
Awesome! Hands down one of the best Zoo's one the west coast (maybe the best). Great layout to get around to see everything and several options for transportation in the park (buses and sky tram).
One of the best zoo's I've ever been to!
The Skyfari is amazing!
Bitki örtüsü ve peyzaja bayıldım. Yağmur ormanlarında yürüdüm sanki bütün gün..
Good for families with kids
Get the delicious and very filling Carne Asada Fries at the Front Street Cafe & Cantina
Head to the Panda exhibit early to miss a long line & to see their morning feeding. Parking is free. Pace yourself because there's lots of walking.... its huge. Best zoo we've ever seen!
¡They sell cold beer!
The animals here are loved and cared for by the best zookeepers in the country. It's a place to go to spend all day or just relax quietly in one of the aviaries after a long day.
Went on a weekday morning, the zoo was totally empty, the animals were very lively. Great time
Excellent park for families to enjoy. The animals healthy and well fed. Recommendation for the bus ride sitting on the right side as the animals look better. Recommended
Huge & beautiful zoo, park cum botanical garden in San Diego
В мире есть зоопарки гораздо интереснее, не тратьте время!
Best zoo in the world. Nothing else comes close. Well-designed exhibits present animals as they would be in nature. Research and education mission is evident in the information given.
We found no parking so we ended up leaving. Maybe some other time.
Try the zoo.
Excelente lugar para la familia y convivir con los animales !!!
If you're going to more than one main attraction in San Diego, consider the 3 day city pass which you can get at the zoo.
Sit on the right hand side of the bus tour. Do the backstage pass!
Very disappointed with the San Diego Zoo. This is a heavily overrated facility, and it feels more like a great flea market than a zoo!
Recomiendo tomar primero el tour en el bus y después explorar lo que mas te gusto caminando
Just say no to buses driving through crowds of children. If you're fat enough to think you need to ride a bus through a zoo, go have a burger instead.
Go see the keeper talk about the big cats. It alternates between the lion and jaguar each day.
First thing: take the bus tour and get the top right seats! Find out where you want to go and then make use of the Kangaroo bus and the Skyfari!
One of the best zoo experiences ever.
Great too see but don't take the bus tour-it just consumes your time and you do not see anything from it
Многие едут в Сан Диего только для того, чтобы посетить этот зоопарк. Это стоит того! Огромная территория, куча редких животных и, конечно же, панда!!!
Check website for promotions on tickets! There are craft beer are tap in the zoo!! Beer with animals? Awesome.
What a great zoo!
Very clean and has the friendliest keepers to answer your questions. Together with the Safari Park it is the best Zoo in the US, if not the world. Wear comfortable shoes. Check the map ahead of time.
Free kids all October
Skyfari tram was great!!!! I've been wanting to come here for a long time :D best zoo ever! Love this place♥ (guided bus tour was also great!!!!!)
Take your own drinks, they're priced as high as theme parks here!
نصيحه: خوذوا الباص أول ماتدخلون، ياخذ لفه على كل الحيوانات وانتم مرتاحين.
Give yourself a whole day to check it out. Start with the bus tour to get a feel for the zoo and finish with the tram 🐼
Taronga Zoo Sydney den sonra gördüğüm en iyi hayvanat bahçesi , tum gününüzü ayırın doga ile ic ice gezin bol bol fotograf cekin ve gitmeden kaplan beslemek icin netten rezervasyon yapın :)
