Tiger Trail – San Diego


While we were gone on our last photo trip to the Grand Canyon, the San Diego Safari Park opened a new Tiger exhibit called the Tiger Trail.  This was a much needed addition as the old tiger exhibit was not good for either the viewers or the tigers – it was pretty much an open field far from view without much of interest (or even much shade) for the tigers.  When we returned I thought I’d check out the new tiger home to see if it was an improvement.  As you can see from the photo, it is now possible to get very close to the Tigers and get good photos.  It is also in a nice shady corner of the park so the tigers have much better places to rest.  They also have a couple of water ponds to drink out of or even play in.  All in all, it is a tremendous improvement to the park.  One tip – if you plan on going there, go early.  I got there at opening and within an hour it was VERY crowded.
