San Diego Zoo is not in vain considered to be one of the biggest zoos in the world, because he has something to show guests. The zoo is quite large, it takes up 40 hectares. Be prepared to spend the hours of 6, if you want to bypass all the animals.
San Diego Zoo pioneered conceptually new organization open-air zoo without cages.
It is home to more than 3,700 animals of 650 species and subspecies of animals, as the park is rich and its fauna: you can admire the beautiful plants and flowers that are planted throughout the park, there is an opportunity to take a walk on a small Japanese garden, look at the fish, Sakura, and other attributes of the Japanese landscape.
Yes, a beautiful zoo, the famous and great, but it seemed to me that the ticket prices are somewhat high, but they also need to feed all the animals and pay salaries to employees.
Parking at the zoo is free, which is very pleasing, and very large, there are additional parking lots, in general, do not need to worry about where to park. After visiting the zoo, you can go to Balboa Park, which is a 3-minute walk away.
At the entrance to the zoo is a beautiful emblem of the park, which remained in the photographs of hundreds of thousands of tourists.
