At the Elephant Odyssey, step into the fossil dig site and explore prehistoric fossil evidence, and visit the habitats of current wildlife species including elephants, a pair of lions and a jaguar!

  • Many displays you won't find in other zoos. Very clean

  • Fantastic place to visit and the night sessions are even better

  • Great! Hop on /Hop off bus makes the zoo accessible without a lot of walking. Don't miss the tram ride. We appreciated that it was included in our purchase price.....and not an extra 16.00 per person. The zoo seemed to exist for the well-being of the animals, rather the
    convenience of the zoo visitors. Can't argue with that!

  • Fantastic zoo! There's so much to see, so definitely plan a full day! Also, dress comfortably because you are sure to get a ton of walking exercise in.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • Fantastic zoo, the animals look well cared for and as happy as any that are in captivity. We enjoyed the bus tour and the Skyfari was very good too. Saw animals we had never seen before and really enjoyed our visit. The only thing that I would criticise would be the restrooms which were small and not kept up to a reasonable standard considering the numbers using them.

  • The San Diego Zoo is by far the best zoo I have ever been too. Its clean and Beautiful. It is an all day thing so plan time to stay.
    Lots to do and see. I can't wait to go back. I will plan time better next time. DO NOT MISS THIS.
