Terrible
Daney_M

The prices were extremely high! We paid for an experience that we did not get. There were no animals and all the shows and tram were closed! We mainly saw birds. My family and I spent over $1500 on a trip to San Deigo including hotels. It’s sad to say our main event the “ Safari Park Zoo was a real disappointment. My 4 year old granddaughter whose birth we were celebrating actually cried an said “there’s no animals.” We felt as though we were just walking through a huge piece of land with trees and food stations. We probably would have been satisfied visiting the regular zoo!

Viator & pick up service
Rajiv_V
, Apr 2021
My trip had to be canceled because website and a person at Viator told me that pick up service was available which was not the case. I canceled well before the deadline & got refund. I had also booked a seal tour with a pick up. The Seal tour company responded understood my problem & stated that they do not pick up guests, offered to book next day. They went out of their way to make the rescheduled seal tour great. It was great. The pick up service is misleading and should be corrected.

I like that there was multiple animals of one kind, not just one or two of each. I loved the tigers. But other that that I only saw different types of birds. I wanted to see the lions but there was too many people.
