A beautiful Sunday visit to the San Diego Safari Park.
We took a leisurely stroll through the Wings of the World aviary and enjoyed some close and personal attention from the many Golden Breasted Starlings. They were quite eager to have their portraits taken!
We watched the elephant keeper talk. It’s always very informative and fun. Showing off their stuff today was Swazi and her baby Qinisa.
Swazi received an elephant pedicure.
And Qinisa got a little trunk wash.
Kastan the Caracal was the featured animal encounter near the African Outpost. He is such a beautiful wild cat and always astounds with his jumping prowess.
Beautiful spring blooms were on display throughout the park.
The meerkats were out and about and being cute as usual.
The cutest of all, though, are the two new lion cubs Ken and Dixie. They are currently in the zoo nursery area and guests can see them playing, eating and sleeping. They are full of lion personality and a pleasure to watch and photograph. Every time we visit they are noticeably bigger!
