Wild Holidays-Christmas Is In The Air @ The San Diego Zoo Safari Park!

By Courtney Daly-Pavone December 17, 2022

The San Diego Zoo Safari Park is celebrating the season with Wild Holidays!


What's Wild Holidays? Thousands of lights adorn the park, musicians like the Holiday Troubador sings seasonal songs, The Turtle Doves violin duo play Christmas favorites, and Sweater Weather a percussionist and acoustic guitarist jam holiday hits! You can meet Santa Claus and take photos! Fiery Stilt Walkers light up the night as they walk around the lagoon, Baja Gardens, and Condor Valley are also lit with lights.

If you've never been to The San Diego Zoo Safari Park you'll love the tram. It's a great way to cover the acres of terrain, and see the animals at home in their Safari Park habitat! 

If you visited the park before, you'll never tire of the tram. We couldn't wait to sit down and take in the sights. We saw rhinos, giraffes, Cape buffalo, a camel, zebra, lions and more! 

After our guided tram tour, we enjoyed strolling through the Safari Park. Everything from greeting the sheep and goats in the petting zoo, to taking in some stress-free holiday shopping at the Safari Park boutiques.

Wild Holidays is taking place on the following dates: Dec. 17–23, 26–31; and January 1. On Wild Holidays dates, the Safari Park is open until 8 p.m. Wild Holidays is included with all admission tickets and memberships.
