White rhinos, Sumatran tigers, and California condors are among the 3,500 residents at this renowned safari park, an 1,800-acre extension of the San Diego Zoo. Most of the animals live in free-range enclosures, enabling them to interact as they would in the wild. In addition to exhibits like the Lion Camp, the park also has a petting corral and a walk-through aviary where visitors can feed lorikeets by hand. Special activities range from tram rides and zip-line tours to animal shows like the Cheetah Run, which provides an up-close view of a cheetah sprinting at full speed—about 70 mph.
