SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — Summer is almost here, meaning a slew of wild, new entertainment at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park.

Summer Safari returns to the Safari Park from May 25 to Sept. 1, bringing live music, arts and crafts, pop-up entertainment, up-close animal experiences, and more fun activities for families to enjoy.

For the first time, the park will also host "family nights" on days the park is open until 8 p.m. On these nights, Monday and Tuesday from June 10 to July 30, special entertainment is planned, including bubble shows and evening cheetah runs.

While Summer Safari is the big draw, guests will also be able to check out the park's new Walkabout Australia exhibit. Guests can wander through the Land Down Under in San Diego, across nearly four acres showcasing Australia's habitats and wildlife, including cassowaries, tree kangaroos, shelducks, and more.
