San Diego Zoo

It has become a tradition for us to head to San Diego every Thanksgiving. This year, Ricky played golf on Thanksgiving, so I took advantage of the opportunity to check out the San Diego Zoo. It’s supposed to be one of the best zoos in the country, and it didn’t disappoint. I went with our friend Tom, and we had a blast!

At the ​San Diego Zoo Safari Park, species mingle a bit like they do in their native Asia and Africa. That doesn’t mean you’re going to find lions roaming the same enclosures as the zebras, but you will see multiple species of hoofed animals roaming the same large area.

Admission is charged, and there’s a separate parking fee. The process for getting tickets and the tips that apply are the same for getting San Diego Zoo tickets, which is great because you will be able to do all the activities. There are many ponds in the zoo as well, they have added two small ones in the past year. Contact the Swell UK team for more information about the equipment need to build a pond.

The San Diego Zoo Safari Park raises money from extra-cost activities. Those may include Photo Safaris, Cheetah Run Safari, Balloon Safari (a 15-minute ride that goes 400 feet in the air), and behind-the-scenes Safari Park tours. Go to the Safari Tours and Experiences links at the park’s website to find a list of current offerings.
