  • A unique experience! The venue coordinators were very responsive and helpful from beginning to end. My husband and I live in the San Francisco Bay Area, so having the wedding here was a bit of a "destination" wedding. It was nice having the bar, catering, tables, chairs and linens included with the venue package. The animal encounter is a must! It was awesome! The venue coordinator provided us with a preferred vendors list which made choosing vendors much simpler and made the planning process smooth. We had a wedding coordinator as well, which was also a must for this venue. Our guests told us it was the best wedding they've been to--including their own.

  • We had our wedding at the c. Having our wedding here was such an amazing experience. Our guests had a wonderful time from the animal presentation at cocktail hour to the views of the giraffes, rhinos, and more in the Kijamii Overlook. The food was excellent and the service was amazing. If you are looking to have a more creative and fun wedding, I would absolutely recommend the Safari Park. Our Event Coordinator Nikki was absolutely fabulous and went above and beyond to accommodate all of our requests and to make our day perfect. Thank you to the San Diego Zoo Safari Park!

  • Had out ceremony and wedding at the Mombassa Pavillion, was an absolute stunning venue. Christian and his team made sure that the day went smoothly and the food IS TO DIE FOR. Really the best steak I've had in such a long time, guests were raving about the food! Easy to deal with and fast with responses. So reasonably priced too. We had a magical day and would reccomend SD safari park to anyone!

  • My husband and I are so glad we chose to have our wedding at the Safari Park! Sydney was a dream to work with. She was so organized and easy to communicate with. In the months before the wedding, she kept us well-informed of upcoming deadlines and answered all of our questions in a timely fashion. She managed all of our vendors for us, which saved us a lot of time and stress. On the day of our event, Sydney ensured that everything went smoothly. If there were any problems that day, we didn't hear about them. Every single Safari Park staff member who worked our event was friendly and attentive. The highlight of the day was the Animal Encounter, which blew everyone away. We heard from multiple guests that ours was the best wedding they have ever attended, and I think the beautiful Park and the wonderful staff were both responsible for that.

  • This was awesome! We had so much fun , and so many incredible moments at our wedding here! Rachel was amazing throughout the entire process. She was so responsive and helpful throughout the planning. She helped us so much! Even during the wedding, on top of all the work she had to do, she kept checking on us to make sure we were ok! The park as a whole was also super accommodating and did an incredible job transforming the ceremony and reception sites for our wedding! We loved every minute of it!

  • Getting married here was an incredible experience. First off, the park is just a really awesome setting for a wedding. It's just really great looking... PLUS there are wild animals around. Sydney, the park's event coordinator for our wedding, was incredible to work with. She was always looking to help us get the wedding day that we wanted - and she did a really great job. The animal presentation is just about the coolest thing that can happen at a wedding, so if you get married here... I highly recommend you have an animal presentation. The reception area was great as well - they transformed a zoo menu into a really fantastic reception area. The food the park has as options for dinner is also incredibly delicious. All in all, I have only good things to say about the entire experience. It was really fantastic and I highly recommend the Safari Park as a wedding venue.

  • How do you sum up a review on a vendor that was beyond incredible?!? And a wedding venue that a girl could only dream of having?! My husband was the one who suggested we go tour the San Diego Zoo’s Safari Park; we started touring places and some were really good and others just didn’t seem to do it for us. We went for our tour with Miss Patti Betts (love her!!) and fell completely in love with the idea of a wedding there!! We made our way through the sites and then finished with visiting the last site; Kijamii Overlook. LOVE!! That was it for us! I think I hugged Patti about 4 times, we were so happy! We would be saying our vows with giraffes and rhino’s roaming in the background!! How amazing is that?! We booked the park and went through the planning phases. Everyone we encountered when touring the park with vendors, tastings, etc. they all were just so nice and excited for us. We felt at home with having our wedding with such a great team. I was then told a Chr... Read more

  • Everything about our wedding was absolutely beautiful and being surrounded by animals really made it possible. Outside of the animals, there are so many beautiful photo locations because of all of the greenery.

  • We could not have asked for a better venue for our wedding. It was absolutely fantastic! The staff and food were wonderful and Sydney, our coordinator, was absolutely amazing. All of our guest are still talking about our wedding and how amazing it was even weeks later. Thank you for a wonderful night we will never forget!!

  • What a phenomenal place to have our wedding! We got married at the Mombasa Lagoon last month, and everything about the day was absolutely perfect. The setting was gorgeous, the food was outstanding, and all of our guests had such a fun time! Two of the biggest highlights for us were: 1. The guests were able to get their admission tickets (included in the wedding package) at any time throughout the day. We had a lot of out-of-town relatives who enjoyed being treated to a day at the Park prior to our wedding! 2. We added an animal presentation onto our package, and it was one of my absolute favorite parts of the day. Our cocktail hour included a serval, a boa, and a cheetah! We are very grateful to the animal keepers, to the waitstaff, and to our truly amazing coordinator, Sydney, for blowing all of our expectations out of the water! Our big day was far above and beyond anything we could have hoped for or imagined!

  • Our wedding went better than we ever imagined. Size: 62 guests (10 children ages 1 to 13) Ceremony Site: Harusi Lawn Reception Site: Tiger Longhouse On-Site Vendors: Site coordinator (provided by the park), day-of coordinator, florist, DJ, MC, dessert-maker, lighting (market lights in reception site) Ceremony: It was fantastic. The lawn fit our party size perfectly, the immediate backdrop of the tree (and two pillars with flowers that we added) was beautiful, and the deeper backdrop of the cheetah enclosure and savanna beyond gave plenty of pre-ceremony action to keep everyone interested. Cocktail hour: One of the things they offer is an animal presentation during the cocktail hour, and every single person who ever gets married here should absolutely do that. The expectation that was set is that 3-4 animals will be presented by trainers in an intimate, up-close fashion with the possible crown jewel being a cheetah (but no guarantee because they might not be in the mood to c...

  • A beautiful venue and memorable experience. The coordinator was professional and well-prepared. We didn’t need many details and decorations due to the beauty of the venue. Our day was joy-filled, stress-free and full of animals.

  • We absolutely loved having our wedding here! If you are looking for a unique and unforgettable wedding where your guests will even say it is the coolest wedding they have ever been to then you have to have it here at the Safari Park. We had our ceremony at the Harusi Lawn which overlooks the giraffes and cheetah training area. Our cocktail hour followed just behind the ceremony where guests enjoyed an open bar and trays of appetizers. We surprised our guests by having an animal presentation where they brought out an adorable fluffy fox, a lizard, owl, servile, and wait for it. . . A CHEETAH!!!! They allowed my now husband and I to get close pictures with each of the animals. Our guests and ourselves were just in total shock and disbelief for how cool it was! After the cocktail hour, everyone was shuttled up to the reception site, passed the savanah to see more animals, and finally dropped off at the Sambutan Longhouse where we celebrated all night next to the tigers!!! The food was a... Read more
