It’s one of the largest zoos in the world, and sees more than three million visitors every year. Why fight all that traffic and struggle to find a parking place. With a charter bus from, you can be dropped off close to the gates, devote all your time to taking in the many exhibits at the zoo, and have the bus waiting for you when you’re ready to go. It’s a great way for an extended family or a group of friends to experience the many amazing exhibits the San Diego Zoo has to offer.

Founded almost 100 years ago, after various animal-related exhibitions at the1915 Panama-California Exposition were abandoned, the zoo pioneered the concept of cageless exhibits, opening the first such habitat for lions in 1922. It is renowned worldwide for its Center for Reproduction of Endangered Species.


Some of the Great Exhibits at the San Diego Zoo

Let’s face it—you can’t see all the San Diego Zoo has to offer in a single day. Here are some of the things you don’t want to miss:

  • Panda Trek: The San Diego Zoo is one of a handful of American zoos to have giant pandas on display. In fact, the first two giant pandas born in the country that survived to adulthood were both born at the San Diego Zoo. Many of the pandas born here have been sent to China as part of a breeding program.
  • Skyfari: The zoo has an overhead gondola lift, built in 1969 by a Swiss company. In the Skyfari, you’ll take a cable car for an aerial view of different habitats.
  • Monkey Trails and Forest Tales—This habitat, opened in 2005, replicates the rainforests of Asia and Africa and houses a wide array of indigenous species, including guenons, mangabey and mandrills, all different types of monkeys. You’ll also find pygmy hippos, pancake tortoises, slender-snouted crocodiles and the famed Madagascar hissing cockroaches.
  • The Polar Bear Plunge—This exhibit houses Arctic animals, including polar bears swimming in a 130,000 gallon pool. There are also reindeer, caribou, Arctic foxes and more than 25 species of ducks.


  • Ituri Forest—This habitat, opened in 1999, is modeled on the real Ituri Forest in the Congo River Basin in the Democratic Republic of Congo. There’s a forest for the okapi, the cousin to the zebra; and a hippopotamus dwelling with an underground viewing area. You may also spot a great blue turaco, an emerald starling or a Congo peafowl, some of the many species of African birds here. There are also forest buffalo, as well as a number of different breeds of monkeys.
  • Elephant Odyssey—The zoo’s elephant exhibit includes three African elephants and three Asian elephants, all females. There are also many other species native to Africa and Asia, including lions, jaguars, tapirs, capybaras and camels.
