Planning a vacation? One of the essential things that travelers should have before visiting a place is the knowledge of what they are going to do. Whether it’s the first visit or a subsequent one, it is important to arm yourself with information on the places you are going to spend your time.
If you love the wild, then the San Diego Zoo is befitting. It is located in San Diego’s Balboa Park. Housing at least 4,000 animals which represent over 800 species on its 100-acre piece of land, the zoo’s main vision is to end extinction. It boasts of being among the few centers that breeds and protects the giant panda successfully.
However, the animal attraction is not the only appealing aspect of the San Diego-based zoo. This recreational center also offers kids’ camps, a wide range of education programs, catered events, guided tour guides, and sleepovers. Here are some exciting things that you can do at the zoo.
Breakfast with Pandas
Before the viewing area of the giant panda opens for the day, you have a chance of visiting them early in the morning. Get on the Early Morning with Pandas two-hour small-group tour and have an adventurous time. Make several stops on the way for up-close viewing of other animals.
Watch the Bai Yun and Xiao Liwu as they enjoy their breakfast and learn more about the popular bamboo bears. Also, learn about the conservation efforts of the zoo towards the endangered pandas as well as all the other wildlife that are under the threat of extinction.
Get in Touch with the Wild
Ever desired to see how exotic cats jump and climb trees? Here is the place to carry your camera and catch every action. The zoo offers you the rare opportunity of coming very close to the animals and feeding some such as the flamingo. Let the experts take you to the place where you can touch and feel the wild.
Go Aerial or Go Kangaroo
Love flying in the air? The zoo offers you the unique experience of catching aerial views of animals, plants, and the surrounding Balboa Park courtesy of the Alaska Airlines. This could be an unforgettable memory for your kids.
If you’re not fond of heights and would like to see much, then the Kangaroo Bus is just perfect for you. Prance on and off the bus at different stops to see much at the zoo. The good thing is that your Guided Bus Tour or admission ticket caters for this trip.
Are you searching for a place to hold an event? Whether it’s a birthday, a wedding, or a company picnic, the zoo could be perfect for you. The zoo’s elegant indoor and outdoor settings, coupled with spectacular views of rare wildlife makes every event better than good.
