Wildlife Explorers Basecamp

 

Wildlife Explorers Basecamp

 

Opening February 2022

Welcome to four acres of wildlife adventure, all with one amazing goal: to encourage young Wildlife Explorers to learn about nature, actively play, encounter new species, and develop empathy for wildlife.

At the Denny Sanford Wildlife Explorers Basecamp, you can interact, climb, scramble, and jump in innovative nature play areas. Visit habitats from around the world, from desert dunes and wild woods to marsh meadows and rainforest. Learn by doing. And through a variety of one-of-a-kind experiences with animals, you’ll connect like never before to the natural world, and understand the importance of conserving wildlife.

A world of explorative play and adventure awaits Wildlife Explorers of every age and size.

Feel what it’s like to be wild at Wildlife Explorers Basecamp.

Only at the San Diego Zoo.
