For a fun, fascinating adventure featuring feathers and fur, embark on this full day excursion to see the world renowned San Diego Zoo! Board your motorcoach at the pier for a brief drive to the breathtaking Balboa Park, the nation's largest urban cultural park. At a lush 1,200 acres, home to 15 major museums, renowned performing arts venues, beautiful gardens and of course, the San Diego Zoo. With so much to see, you have several options as to how to take it all in. Enjoy a leisurely, guided double-decker bus tour past major highlights. For a bird's eye view, ride the Skyfari aerial tram above the lush treetops and open-air exhibits. Of course, you can always stroll through the verdant grounds, observing the animals and reading about them at your own pace. Not only will you see animals that are living amongst us today, you’ll also learn about animals that lived in Southern California 12,000 years ago. Then meet their living counterparts at The Harry and Grace Steele Elephant Odyssey.

Marvel at the 7 1/2 acre multi-species habitat which features elephants, California condors, jaguars and more. Learn about the zoo’s conservation efforts to prevent wildlife from becoming extinct. Koalafornia is the Zoo's newest exhibit. This brand-new experience begins at an entrance of aboriginal-style totems that represent well known Aussie animals. Wind your way through a eucalyptus grove to encounter singular species from wombats and wallabies to kookaburras and cockatoos. Uncover fascinating facts about Australian forests and wildlife, see how well you know your marsupials, and get photos of the kids sitting in a koala tree. No tour of the San Diego Zoo is complete without a visit to the famous giant panda family. Take time out from your adventure to indulge in a meal or snack at one of the many zoo restaurants - from gourmet to casual. Browse for souvenirs at the gifts shops and remember that your purchases support the zoo!
