Animals in Action Experience

Meet Animals Up Close!

Meet a rhino up close, see exotic cats climb and jump, feed flamingos, and much more! Bring your camera to this fun and interactive experience, as we bring the animals out to you for an up-close view. Our expert trainers will also take you behind the scenes to feed, touch, or help train some of our animal ambassadors. You will hear amazing stories about each animal you meet, and find out how the San Diego Zoo is helping to save species here and around the world. Some animals are unique to this experience and can only be viewed by attending Animals In Action!* Reserve your spot today!

* Our animal experiences are subject to change, based on the animals’ health and safety needs.
