Does the Zoo/Safari Park have special birthday packages?

Celebrate your child’s birthday at the San Diego Zoo with our Aussie Outback Birthdays, a once-in-a-lifetime Australian adventure!  Children ages 10 and younger will enjoy a special birthday celebration in our Aussie Outback party room, hosted by our knowledgeable and fun-loving Zoo educators. The Birthday Bash includes up-close animal presentations and entertainment with the Zoo’s own animal researcher, Dr. Zoolittle. Guests will enjoy Zoo decorations, cake and juice, and fun, Zoo-themed birthday activities.  Call 619-685-3259 to speak with an event specialist or email us at for more information.

We also offer a full range of catering services, or guests may bring personal food items into our parks. Large food storage containers such as coolers are not permitted on grounds, and no facilities are available for food storage. Tables are available on a first-come, first-served basis. For the safety of other guests and the animals in our care, we ask that you do not bring any glass, straws, alcohol, or balloons into our parks. If you would like to discuss a private, catered event at either park, please call our Catering Sales Department at 619-685-3259.
