S.D. Zoo Safari Park - Safari Walk Entry
« on: May 29, 2018, 09:52 AM »

The San Diego Zoo Safari Park opened in 1972 in the San Pasqual Valley. Its 1,800 acres is home to more than 3,500 animals, as well as 3,500 species of plant life.



The thatched entrance was designed to resemble a ceremonial chamber of a Ugandan king.



The Safari Walk trail takes guests into the park.



Dense tropical landscaping









Along the pathway, guests encounter various animals and color birds, like this West African Crowned Crane.



The West African Crowned Crane makes its home in west and central Africa in shallow wetlands and grasslands.



The Trumpeter Swan, from northern North America.



Weighing in at up to 30 lbs., the Trumpeter Swan is the heaviest living bird native to North America.



The Lowland Paca can be found in east-central Mexico and south to Paraguay.



The Green-Winged Macaw form South America.



The Hyacinth Macaw, from southern and central Brazil.






At the end of the trail, guests pass the Benefactor's Wall, and head into the first realm of the Safari Park.

Southern Pudu


The Lowland Paca exhibit was recently replaced with a pair of Southern Pudus.



The Southern Pudu is the world's smallest deer and can be found in the forests of Chile and Argentina.



It must be nap time.
