A nice set up to visit. A lot of walking for little benefit. Whilst there are a lot of animals, the place looks very tired and is of a need of clean up. Great for kids to see tropical animals. Nothing really new if you have been to any zoo in any of our capital cities

Really great attraction and very clean. We walked among a large variety of birds. I took a picture holding a koala - there was a $10 charge. I also got to feed the kangaroos.

Offered talks & photo shoots with various occupants at an extra charge but we are too old for that. Really good $16 all you can eat buffet lunch & breakfast was also available which we... More

Wonderful family attracrion. Wander through the open 'cages' where you can walk amongst the birds and wallabies. Children can feed the wallabies and kangaroos, see a cassowary, and watch the crocodile being fed. Other timed attractions include breakfast or lunch with the birds, and presentations with the opportunity to hold a snake or pat a koala. Suitable for pushers and... More

Not to be missed, this is a great wildlife park with the opportunity to hand feed the native animals. Informative tours give you an insight to our endangered species. We found this extremely educational. Don't forget breakfast with the birds, a must for all the kids.

A great hands on place. The best part was the Casawary eating out of my hand. They give you food. Gentle but don't trust these ducks and geese. The parrot bit off my bracelet. My fault. Good all around animal selection.

Having the San Diego Safari Park & zoo in my own back yard all my life I really didn't expect too much going to the habitat. I was pleasantly surprised with the entire experience. The park is very clean, the animals well cared for and the staff quite knowledgable. They are friendly and want you to leave knowing more than... More
