San Diego Zoo

Sitting on 100 scenic acres in Balboa Park, just seven miles from The Dana on Mission Bay, the San Diego Zoo is one of the most popular zoological parks on the planet. More than 3,700 animals from over 650 species and subspecies, many endangered, reside at the zoo. Some of the more unique critters are the giant panda, koala, Komodo dragon, and laughing kookaburra. You'll also enjoy live shows, tours, and a botanical garden with hundreds of thousands of exotic plants.

  • Are there guided tours at the San Diego Zoo?

    There are several. The 35-minute Guided Bus Tour, which is included in the admission price, is narrated and covers nearly three-quarters of the zoo. Inside Look Tours go behind the scenes, providing cool information, such as how the animals are cared for. Then there’s the one-hour Discovery Tour where you'll get an up-close-and-personal view of the animals and plants.
  • Can I bring food into the Zoo?

    You sure can. And you'll be able to enjoy it at the picnic areas outside the Zoo's main entrance. No coolers are allowed inside the zoo and there are no food storage facilities. Glass, alcohol, and straws are prohibited to ensure the safety of all visitors and animals.
