With literally thousands of wild animals including many on the endangered species list, its no wonder that San Diego Zoo is world famous. With more than 4,000 animals representing 800 species, San Diego Zoo is home to a diverse collection of animals, many of which are rarely seen at other zoos. Either either spend another day at the San Diego Zoo, or receive admission to the San Diego Zoo Safari Park, located about 35 miles (55 km) away from the zoo. At the San Diego Zoo Safari Park, you will be inspired by the African Serengeti and the endless expanses of the Asian plains, the 1,800-acre San Diego Zoo Safari Park offers you an exotic safari adventure unlike any other outside of Africa itself. With mobile tickets, simply scan your phone for direct entry into the San Diego Zoo and Safari Park.

Excellent tour/ticket combo. I only had to show my Drivers License along with my electronic ticket for both days. Very easy to use.

Excellent zoo and park. The zoo is almost to big to do in a day. The Safari park was great but the excursions into the Safari park were quite excessive

Spent while day at each place seeing all the exhibits. Worth spending time and money. Chilly in the February mornings but afternoons warmed nicely. Lots Of Walking up And Down As Both parks Were Very Hilly.

Definitely, get this combo, it was worth the price and allowed you to see both parks, but you would need a solid two days. One day for each park.

We started with the double decker bus tour at the zoo which helped with orientation. Good to see so many animals that we normally dont see. It is best to arrive at the zoo or safari at 9 AM because the animals are more active. We toured the zoo Jan. 4, and the safari Jan. 11. Be prepared for lots of walking, especially more so at the Safari. The maps are characterized so are not too easy to follow but volunteers wearing red shirts are very helpful for directions and info about the animals. Make sure to take the tram at the Safari as the driver-guides are very knowledgeable and give you an excellent explanation of the animals and characteristics.
By the time we had walked 3.5 hours and taken the tram. We were ready to exit the place which is difficult to find as the main exit lane is under repair so the signage is not only difficult but incorrect. Again, we relied on the great volunteers. Seniors might investigate the rental of a motorized scooter.

Would not visit both parks on the same vacation. The Zoo and Safari Park were excellent independently, but a bit too similar to visit on consecutive dates.

This was our second visit to each park previously 20 years ago at the zoo. Perhaps 10 years ago at Safari Park. Zoo was fine. Was disappointed in Safari...park expansion has resulted in much more walking to see animals. Not a friendly place for those with mobility issues. Earlier visit on Africa Tram we saw elephants, lions, etc. Seems like the tram tour this time was a visit of limited kinds of animal. Many of the same animals.

Because we were not able to go on the tram rides, we were not able to see a lot of the animals in the zoo and the safari park. I feel that the fee should have been adjusted because of that. I did not feel I got my money's worth.
