Meet lions, tigers, bears, and other big cats like leopards, bobcats, mountain lions, and servals, along with dozens of ranch animals. Enjoy the most amazing animal encounter in San Diego with our "Feed with a Keeper" Experience or one of our "Exclusive Behind the Scenes" Experiences - where you can help our keepers feed a lion, tiger or bear of your choice, all while learning about their incredible rescue stories. Visits take place Wednesday through Saturday and all ages are welcome.
