This zoo is called “world class” and there’s no doubt about that. Even if there were no animals, the grounds are like a botanical garden with probably 100 waterfalls. The animal enclosures are landscaped and many have their own waterfalls, lots of shade, and no smell whatsoever. We saw every animal except the cats. After the zoo, we tried to walk as much of Balboa Park as we could but I think it would need a week to do it justice and see all the museums. This is another place I want to see again.
