Ranked as one of the best zoos in the whole of the United States, the San Diego Zoo is one of the most popular family-friendly attractions. Home to over 3,700 animals and over 700, 000 exotic plants, the zoo invites its visitors on an unforgettable journey into the wilderness. After you arrive at the zoo (you will need to arrange your own transportation), stop by the Visitor Centre and get your map of the attraction. From then on, plan your time carefully as there is loads to see and experience. Visit spacious animal enclosures and observe rare species in their natural habitats. Don’t miss out on the popular koala and panda exhibits and other special attractions like the Gorilla Tropics. Make sure you leave time for the Kangaroo Express Bus and the Skyfari aerial tram — a ride over the treetops offering picturesque views of the zoo below. You will also have the chance to learn more about the zoo's inhabitants during daily zookeepers' talks.
