Tour / Activity Description

There are different Zones in the San Diego Zoo, such as the Lost Forest where you can see Monkeys, Hippos, Tigers and many more. At the Urban Jungle, you will see and be able to feed the Giraffes which is a little messy but makes for a fun and unforgettable experience. Also check out the gigantic Elephant habitat, the Camels, Koalas, and the Children’s Zoo at Discovery Outpost.

It’s not just watching the animals that makes the San Diego Zoo a fun place, there are also shows and tours. For example you can watch the Dr. Zoolittle Children’s show or get an ultimate 4-D experience at the 4-D Theatre to see Ice Age™ Dawn of the Dinosaurs. The Skyfari® aerial tram, included in our tour, is a unique shortcut above the treetops to get to the other side of the Zoo.
