Last one!


We had another fantastic day in San Diego. We visited the San Diego Wild Animal Park. The Park, visited by 2 million people annually, has an area of 1,800 acres. It houses over 3,000 animals with more than 400 species plus 3,500 species of unique plants.

The Park houses a large array of wild and endangered animals including species from the continents of Africa, Asia, Europe, North and South America, and Australia. The park is in a semi-arid environment and one of its most notable features is the Journey into Africa tram which explores the expansive African exhibits. These free-range enclosures house such animals as cheetahs, antelopes, lions, giraffes, okapis, elephants, zebras, Przewalski's horses, rhinos, and bonobos. The park is also noted for its California condor breeding program, the most successful program in the country.

My favorite part of the park was the bird show, Frequent Flyers. They had a variety of birds flying loose including African Cranes, Condors and more. It was an incredible show. We all enjoyed this park much and would highly recommend it to all. I am adding a ton of pictures, some without captions because they speak for themselves. :-) More later from San Diego.
