San Diego Zoo Exhibits and World Famous Conservation Efforts
The San Diego Zoo’s expansive layout provides visitors with a full day entertainment. For guests who do not want to travel the park on foot, there are a few other options. There are various bus and shuttle tours that transport visitors around the park and provide interesting and educational narration about popular exhibits. Travelers who are not afraid of heights can also opt to ride the zoo’s gondola, providing a view of the entire park from the sky.
While many exhibits provide an up-close view of the animals from an enclosed glass or fenced in area, there are also certain exhibits that offer a more interactive experience. The Urban Jungle is a popular segment of the zoo which allows visitors to walk up directly to giraffes, pet and feed them. The zoo also has a Backstage Pass Tour. Animal lovers can touch, help train and experience up-close encounters with some of the zoo’s friendly animals and their trainers. You’ll also receive inside information and education about facility itself as well as the zoo’s conservation program.
