I think I may have posted pics years ago. They used to have the Festival of Lights at the much larger San Diego Zoo Safari Park in Escondido (30 miles north of the San Diego Zoo). It's more than 2,000 acres. The animals run wild.

The Safari sounds wonderful but I don't think I would be getting out there at the Safari to take pictures lol.

I have several pics on GoY from the Safari Park. It's from a few years back.
