An Urban Paradise For All Ages…

An urban paradise for all ages, the San Diego Zoo is a must-see in Southern California. Winding paths through the tropical oasis of a botanical garden bring you to more than 4,000 rare and fascinating animals, including koalas, Galápagos tortoises, tigers, eagles, and more.

Explore Africa Rocks to discover penguins, baboons, the mysterious fossa, weaver birds, and other unique creatures. The festive, lively atmosphere makes the San Diego Zoo a great place for family fun and gathering friends. Discover the wonders of wildlife with animal encounters, interactive experiences, and exciting animal presentations and shows. A leader in animal care and conservation, the San Diego Zoo is at the heart of the San Diego experience. Hope to see you soon!

We are excited to announce that beginning on June 15, and in accordance with state and local guidelines, we will be lifting most COVID-19 restrictions. 

  • Date-specific tickets are no longer needed! If you already have a ticket, it will still be honored and there is nothing further you need to do.
  • Health screenings prior to guest entry will no longer be required, which will free up parking space and reduce wait times. Proof of vaccination will not be required upon entry.
  • Facial coverings will no longer be required on grounds. Those who are not fully vaccinated are recommended by the CDC to wear facial coverings. 
  • Special experience tours will no longer be limited to household groups, allowing for individual pricing and greater availability.
