    You definitely get your workout in at this Zoo! Me and my husband were both pushing twin strollers up and down hills galore. It was fun, I loved the zoo. If you don't like nature you might be irritated with the many things falling from the trees and the bugs. However, during the day, especially midday most of the animals are sleeping and its its not fun when you cant see them doing anything or they dont want to come out. I prefer the night time Zoo.

    First time to the San Diego zoo. Was a great experience and a must if you haven't. We also did the backstage pass a 1 1/2 tour WTF was worth the $109. Staff was amazing and well informed and who doesn't want to feed/pet a Rhino...

    Best zoo in the States! Although somewhat costly at $43 (and I bought it for $5 cheaper at Balboa Park's Visitor Center), the San Diego Zoo has over 4,000 animals to see. The zoo pioneered the concept of open-air exhibits to help recreate natural animal habitats. There's a guided tour bus and an overhead lift called Skyfari that provides an aerial view of the zoo and takes you from one end of the zoo to the other. The San Diego Zoo also operates the San Diego Zoo Safari Park (about an hour away in the San Pasqual Valley).

    Hot and noisy. Expected much more from such a famous zoo. Several exhibits closed, and any animal/bird that can mimic only screams because they are copying all the noisy school kids. Stood in long line to see the pandas, only to find out (once we got up there) that one exhibit was closed for cleaning, and the other one had the panda sleeping out of sight.. Would have been nice to know about the cleaning BEFORE waiting for 30 minutes in a queue.
    Got some coffee but they aren't allowed to give out straws or sleeves, so walked around holding a scalding...Read More

    There is a reason this place is the best zoo in America and possibly the world. Even after two visits here (yes I got there at opening and left just before closing) I still have yet to see every animal the park has, but hopefully the next visit will. Personally loved the birds here. Birds I have never seen or heard of before always seem to be new after each visit. On a different note, unless you are made of money, I would suggest staying away from the cafes and restaurants here. Never tried em, but it's so much easier to just bring a lunch rather...Read More

The zoo pioneered the concept of open-air exhibits to help recreate natural animal habitats. There's a guided tour bus and an overhead lift called Skyfari that provides an aerial view of the zoo and takes you from one end of the zoo to the other. The San Diego Zoo also operates the San Diego Zoo Safari Park (about an hour away in the San Pasqual Valley).

Exhibits typically center on a particular habitat, like Urban Jungle (giraffes, rhinos, bears), Outback (koalas, wombats, kookaburras), Elephant Odyssey (elephants, lions, jaguars, camels, llamas), Northern Frontier (polar bears, Arctic foxes, reindeer), Panda Canyon (giant pandas, red pandas), Lost Forest (tigers, orangutans, gorillas), and the Aviary.

San Diego Zoo is known for its many conservation and preservation efforts. It's one of four zoos in the States that have giant pandas and the most successful zoo in terms of reproduction. The zoo also has the most koalas outside of their native land of Australia. San Diego Zoo has successfully reintroduced 30 endangered species back into the wild and their Institute for Conservation Research is the largest zoo-based research effort in the world.

It's almost always crowded at the zoo, with tourists up the wazoo especially families. Getting a good photo (or a good view) is a gift, and if you don't have to wait in a Skyfari line, consider yourself lucky. The panda exhibit had a very long line (and not well-shaded, so be prepared to wait and get a bit of a tan!). On the flip side, there's free parking and tons of exhibits (and new ones being built). Admission is pricey, but you can find discount codes online. Great place for kids and families.

Won't be back.
