My family and I went here on a weekday afternoon so we can have a leisurely walk, and enjoy watching the animals and the scenery. The $46 admission fee includes a ride in the Africa Tram. The Africa Tram was about a 30 minute ride that slowly takes you around the African Safari area. It was great seeing the animals roaming around a wide, open space. We packed some sandwiches and drinks, and ate them while we were waiting for the tram to go. If you want to save money by not buying expensive food in the park, families can have a small picnic while sitting on one of the benches with the phenomenal overlooking view of the safari area. We watched the Cheetah Run, which was such an interesting and unique show- they are basically showing how their resident cheetah (Amara) can run about 65 miles per hour on a 100 meter track. The animal caretakers around the zoo were very friendly, informative, and helpful. This wonderful zoo has been doing a lot of conservation projects to save various animal species. I highly recommend this activity for families visiting San Diego.
