San Diego Safari Park

San Diego



Embark on your very own wedding Safari at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park? Imagine sharing your first kiss as a married couple while overlooking a vast savanna, where herds of rhinos, giraffes, and gazelles roam in the distance. Or if you envision a tropical paradise, walk down the aisle in a lush setting on an edge of a lagoon, filled with rare birds and beautiful plant life for your guests to admire. With several incredible backdrops to say “I do,” your dreams can become a reality on your big day. Celebrate with your loved ones in the spacious Hunte Nairobi Pavilion where the lofty ceiling and open ambiance transports you to the heart of Africa. With an array of custom floral pieces, exotic entertainment, and an occasional visit from a furry friend, the San Diego Zoo Safari Park creates a unique and memorable experience to cherish a lifetime.
