Special Experiences at the San Diego Zoo

Take for instance the special experiences. There are quite a number of them for you to choose from. For instance, the Inside Look Tours. This special experience includes a two-hour educational adventure. Happening daily, this experience offers behind-the-scenes views and information about how to take care of animals. Those animals include elephants, koalas, monkeys, and more. For all you AV8 neighbors who are 21+ go ahead and attend their Wild Night Out. Participate in an evening filled with music, socializing, and a preview of Jungle Bells. All of this, and while sipping on a complimentary beverage of your choice. And that includes beer. Please know that you need to make a reservation for this event. Tickets for this go on sale in September and is set for Thursday, December 13th from 5:30 PM to 9 PM. Additional special experiences include Keeper for a Day, Early Morning with Pandas, Sunrise Surprise Stroll, and much, much more.

Animals and Plants

When you arrive at the San Diego Zoo, you will be given a map that breaks everything down. The entire zoo includes all sorts of animals and plants. From grizzly bears in the Asian Passage, a Terrace Lagoon in the Lost Forest, and giraffes in the Urban Jungle, there is so much to learn and discover about wildlife here. And if there is a particular animal or plant that you love, they will have it.

Special Events

Finally, be sure to attend their Nighttime Zoo while you still can. Stay after dark and “rock and roar” with live music, fun shows, and special animal encounters. This summer event is still going on and ends September 3rd.  


Whether it is with the family or on a date, the San Diego Zoo has so much to offer. So head on over and start exploring the wonders of the wild.
