We rang in 2018, well, by sleeping. But when we woke up, we packed up the truck and headed south to spend the day with our friends at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. My mom was still in town visiting us and so we had a full and fun day with our group of 11 (two families and two sets of grandparents!). I was the only person in our family who had ever been to the Safari Park and that was almost nine years ago (back when it was called the San Diego Wild Animal Park). Our girls love animals (especially Lillian) and so it was a lot of fun to explore the park and see all of the animals. We rode the Africa Tram, walked along the new Tiger Trail, and ate lunch at the Watering Hole at Kijamii Overlook (highly recommended!). Visiting the park during the winter and on a Monday holiday (New Year’s Day) meant short lines and small crowds and no inland heat – win, win, win!

    Looks like a fun day, but I’m confused – is the safari park an add-on to the zoo? A smaller “competing” theme park? Whatever it is, it looks really fun. Glad you guys went!
