San Diego Wild Animal Park

Aside from the San Diego Zoo, the San Diego Wild

Animal Park is the best place in San Diego to see

animals. Over the spread of 1,800 acres, the animal

park gives animals the room they need to roam and

play. The animals here play just like they do in

the wild, which almost makes you feel as if you

are in their native of Africa and Asia.

Throughout the 30 year history of the animal park,

the Noah’s Ark symbol of endangered species has grown

to dozens upon dozens of animals. Now, every Arabian

Oryx found in the wild is the descendant stock from the

San Diego Wild Animal Park.

In the park, there are many different paths you can

take to visit the smaller animal exhibits. Although

the smaller animals are a sight to see, the main

thing to see is the hour long trip on the Bush Line

Railway. Along the railway, you’ll see animals that

you’d never get the chance of seeing anywhere else,

such as the white rhino and the rhinoceros.

If you plan to visit the park in the summer, it’s

always a good idea to visit early. On a normal summer

day, ten – fifteen thousand people will visit the

park. During the winter, the ratio is down as

normally 2,000 people will visit. Although it’s much

colder in the winter, the park is less frequent with

people looking to see the animals the park offers.

You can find the animal park 32 miles north of

Escondido in San Diego. The park is in a peaceful

area, which makes things a lot better for the animals

that live there.

When visiting in the summer, it’s a great idea to walk

a while, then take the railway. After you have took

the railway a bit, you can walk some more. It’s also

good to take plenty of sunscreen with you as well, as

summer at the park can get very hot. Water is great

as well, simply because the summer in California can

be a bit of a scorcher.

The San Diego Wild Animal Park is ran by the San Diego

Zoological Society. The society also runs the San

Diego Zoo, which is one of the most popular animal

parks in the entire world. With the park and the zoo,

the society does more than its part to bring the

best of seeing the animals to you.

The next time you are in San Diego or if you are

visiting for the first time, the Wild Animal Park is

a great place to visit. You can check out some truly

endangered species and learn more about the types of

animals that you’ll see in this once in a lifetime
