I love visiting the San Diego Zoo, both for the interesting animals and beautiful setting. The Safari Park is like its name implies - more similar to an African Safari than a zoo. Both are worth a visit, but no need to pay full price. Read further for discounts and coupons to the zoo.
Yes, the zoo and safari park are now open to California and out of state visitors. Reservations are no longer required. Due to COVID-19, not all offers on this page are currently available.
There are many ways to get discount tickets to the San Diego Zoo, so we'll tell you how. Some discounts will also get you into the San Diego Wild Animal Park, now called the San Diego Zoo Safari Park, a spacious companion park that was a former breeding ground for zoo animals.
Become a member of the San Diego Zoo, and enjoy a tax writeoff too. You will pay for your zoo membership with just one visit.
This is a great way to support your local zoo, and enjoy an inexpensive year long San Diego Zoo membership. They offer membership for 2 adults in same household for $205 (and sometimes $10 off offers in the mail. Please note this offer is valid for Southern California residents only (ZIP codes 91900 to 92899). The $205 will probably only cost you about $150 after taxes, so 2 people can visit the Zoo for only about $75 each, and then go for free the rest of the year to the Wild Animal Park, or return to the Zoo for free! This is such an awesome deal! You get discount coupons for guest passes too. For more information about San Diego Zoo Membership see sandiegozoowildlifealliance.org
