Unlike the world famous San Diego Zoo, the San Diego Wild Animal Park is (a) not in San Diego and (b) very big and open. Located in the town of Escondido, about 30 minutes northeast of San Diego, the Wild Animal Park (WAP) contains a lot of open space in which animals from around the world and live in environments more like their native habitat (at least when compared to a typical zoo cage.
The pictures above were shot from the free 45 minute train ride that takes you to areas of the park that are not accessible on foot. While we only spent a few hours there yesterday, one could easily enjoy a full day visiting all the critters.
I'll post more pics on Flickr in a few days.
