Amazing! 4.6/5 Expedia Guest Rating View all 4 Expedia Verified Reviews

Immerse yourself in the animal kingdom at the San Diego Zoo, home to more than 4,000 animals across 800 rare and exotic species. Spend quality time with giant pandas, New Zealand kiwis, endangered sun bears, and Galápagos tortoises—the zoo’s oldest residents.

At the Polar Bear Plunge, get an up-close underwater view of these iconic Arctic bears as they swim and play. Visit Gorilla Tropics, one of the zoo’s bioclimatic zones, where the sights and sounds of a tropical rainforest closely mimic the African lowland gorilla’s natural habitat.

The Children’s Zoo includes a nursery with baby animals and a popular petting area where sheep and goats await their next cuddle. And in the Outback, you can see hopping kangaroos, cuddly koalas, and hot pink flamingos hanging with their friends.

If your feet need a rest, board one of the open-air double-decker buses for a 35-minute narrated tour around many of the zoo's best exhibits, take the Express Bus and hop on and off at 5 different stops, or snag a bird’s-eye view of the entire grounds with a high-flying ride on the Skyfari® Aerial Tram.
