How would you describe the San Diego Zoo & Safari Park experience?
Walking into the Zoo
or the Safari Park carries with it feelings of nostalgia, excitement, and
experiences that some will only encounter once in a lifetime. We like to say
‘guests will be trumpeting about the experience for years to come’, which is
true, but guests who have spent time with us become part of the bigger picture
in our efforts to save animals from the brink of extinction. 
What is one important piece of advice you would like to
share with couples in choosing a wedding venue?  
Your wedding venue should reflect who you are as couple. A place to
revisit for years to come and remember that special day you decided to embark
on your exciting new journey together.
