San Diego Wild Animal Park

15500 San Pasqual Valley Road, Escondido, California 92027-7017 USA

“Where the Earth's rarest animals roam together”

The spacious San Diego Wild Animal Park is a wildlife preserve where many of the earth's rarest animals roam together in herds and flocks in vast expanses similar to their native homelands. More than 3,200 animals represent over 400 species. San Diego Wild Animal Park is also an accredited botanical garden with over 3,500 species of exotic plants. It's operated by the not-for-profit Zoological Society of San Diego. The Zoological Society, dedicated to the conservation of endangered species and their habitats, also manages the World-Famous San Diego Zoo and the Center for Reproduction of Endangered Species (CRES). San Diego Wild Animal Park's Heart of Africa is a 32-acre safari walk through an African wilderness that allows guests to traverse a variety of habitats from dense forests to grassy savannas to a waterhole featuring three islands and a rustic interactive research camp. Guests stroll near animals including okapis, cheetahs, rhinos, giant eland, colobus monkeys, wattled cranes, warthogs, hornbills and flamingos. San Diego Wild Animal Park's WGASA Bush Line Railway is a 5-mile, 50-minute excursion that offers the grandest views of rare African and Asian animals outside of their native homeland. Inspired by the legendary Safari trains of Africa, the WGASA Bush Line travels past herds of elephants, zebras and giraffes; families of pygmy chimpanzees; a pride of lions; crashes of rhinos; flocks of ostriches and hundreds of other exotic creatures.

Such an educational place to go!! Such a family treasure!!

We all loved walking around the park, there are plenty of natural surroundings available for the animals kept there and this is the greatest part, they are not kept in cages, they just lay there and run around.

You will all love this place and if you get tired just go and grab some food at one of the food places existing at the area.

There is a lot of walking so bare in mind to wear comfortable shoes.

Visited the park for the first time this March 2015. The place is pretty darn big and much to see and learn. The animals are very up close and for the most part they all have plenty of space to inhabit in comparison to a zoo. Did not know the it was a breeding facility either. Great place to take the family and enjoy the day. The butterfly exhibit was pretty cool, oh and they serve beer at this place! FYI!
