Doesn’t get much better than this place! The San Diego Wild Animal Park, located a short 30 minutes from Carlsbad, in the San Pasqual Valley area (MAP LINK) of San Diego California, near Escondido, is a awesome park filled with thousands of exotic wild animals. It’s also a very large park so bring your hiking shoes, and prepare the nap time rigs, because the Wild Animal Park will tire out you and your kids. But every minute is well worth the effort. You may want to strongly consider a season pass as it makes financial sense if you plan on going more than once throughout the year.

San Diego Wild Animal Park is one of the largest tourist attractions in San Diego County. 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 Africa Tram which explores the expansive African exhibits. These free-range enclosures house such animals as antelopes, giraffes, buffalo, cranes, and rhinoceros. The park is also noted for its California condor breeding program, the most successful such program in the United States. The park, visited by 2 million people annually, houses over 2,600 animals representing more than 300 species, as well as 3,500 plant species. Depending on the season, the park has about 400 to 600 employees. The park is also Southern California’s quarantine center for zoo animals imported into the United States through San Diego. The park has the world’s largest veterinary hospital.
