The San Diego Zoo Safari Park is AMAZING! It covers over 1,800 acres, almost half of it set aside as a protected habitat for native species. Over 300 acres house two large open-range exhibits, Asian Savanna and African Plains, where many species of animals roam freely together.
Probably the best thing about the Safari Park is that it is mainly a breeding organization, so there is always babies to be seen. Our driver on the African Tram ride told us that there has been well over 3000 babies born at the park since it began in 1972!
The Safari Park is a wonderful educational location. Every major exhibit has two or three volunteers in red shirts, waiting to answer questions and discuss the animals, and there are other volunteers scattered throughout ready to help. We learned the animals’ names, their personalities and relationships, and so much more.
Anyway, here are just a small percentage of the numerous photos we took!
