Spend hours exploring the San Diego Zoo Safari Park on your own and discover a collection of extraordinary animals. Your tour begins with a scenic drive into the San Pascal Valley and to the famed park, which sprawls over 1,800 acres of open-range enclosures, climate-controlled exhibits and areas that replicate natural habitats. You will have hours to roam about at your leisure, but be sure to get a map to make the most of your time. You can visit the Cheetah Safari to watch the world’s fastest land mammal demonstrate running speeds that approach 70 miles per hour. Other safari experiences offer close-up views of rhinos, giraffes and gorillas. Just about any animal you have in mind to see can be found at the park, including unusual species such as gerenuks and okapis, and favorites such as Sumatran tigers and African elephants.
