November Safari--San Diego Zoo's Safari Park! @ San Diego Safari Park | Escondido | California | United States
Hello Fellow Safari Goers, In November we are heading to the San Diego Zoo’s Safari Park. It’s time to visit all the wild animals and capture some awesome images! Just east of the I15 in Escondido you’ll find this awesome outdoor adventure. Open 9am-5pm on our day. At the San Diego Zoo Safari Park, lions lounge in the grasslands while rhinos and antelopes cool off in a nearby watering hole. You can see the best of African wildlife on this memorable safari adventure in a park that’s home to more than 3,500 animals representing 429 species! The San Diego Zoo Safari Park is a wildlife preserve that mimics the natural habitats of African and Asian animals. Its 33,000-square-foot Lion Camp even provides guests an opportunity to experience a face-to-face encounter with lions! No need to go all the way to Africa to experience a safari—San Diego Zoo Safari Park offers a very realistic mini-safari excursion that lets you take in all the splendors of the savannah! Step foot inside the park’s 1,800 acres and climb aboard the Africa Tram Safari for a quick trip around the park. Come join us for a day in the sun and animals on the run. Message me at or text me at 619-733-3736 to let me know you’re coming. Also if you find any ticket specials, share them with us and we’ll pass them on! Thanks Launey PS- Photo by Christi Ransom Photography!
