Wildlife Photography in San Diego and SoCal
Looking for a new venue for your Photography Club or Meetup?
Let Wild Wonders host your group for a fun 90 minute photo shoot with our animal ambassadors. We offer a wide variety of animals – from cheetahs to armadillos to birds of prey to porcupines. Our keepers will make sure our stars are ready for your visit and have their best paws, wings, or scales forward.

Many animals can be brought out from their enclosures and displayed in a natural setting. Some, like our Great Horned Owl, may need to be held. Others, like our cheetahs, lynx, and servals, will be in their exercise yard which has grass for a backdrop and you can shoot through a fence which is wide enough for a standard lens.
Need to come on a Saturday or Sunday? No problem. We are open 7 days a week.
Want to shoot during the morning light? Of course. We can accommodate you as early as 8AM.
What does this cost?
We require a minimum of 5 people to host your event. And so that you can all have the best viewing opportunities, there is a maximum group size of 15.
5-10 people: $40 / person
11- 15 people: $30 / person
Some things to know
Please wear closed toed shoes. Many of our pathways are covered in bark.
Wearing a hat in the sun is always a good idea. However, some of our animals might be disturbed by your hat, and you may be asked to remove it while photographing that animal.
Our terrain is uneven, and the stairs up to the cheetah enclosure are railroad ties. If you have mobility issues, this could be especially challenging.
