We took my friends from the Philippines, Arlene and husband Jun to Wild Animal Park in Escondido. It was all our first time there. I've been to San Diego Zoo several times before and never been to this park. Wow!!!, look at what I missed!!! No wonder my neighbors always recommended going here. This was not a zoo... it felt like we were on Safari. The animals seems like they were in their own natural environment. They have 1,800 acre wildlife preserve which allows visitors to view herds of exotic animals as they might have been seen in their native Asia or Africa.


What makes the San Diego Zoo's Wild Animal Park so unique are the large enclosures which enable the animals to roam freely. So how do you observe them in their natural setting? The Wgasa Bush Line Railway, that's how. The Railway is an electric monorail ride that takes you on an incredible, 55-minute guided tour of the Wild Animal Park's major field enclosures of Eurasia and Africa. Go to http://www.wildanimalpark.com. Go there for more information.

Wild Animal Park is definitely the Park to see when in the San Diego Area
