Field Trip Request Form

Field Trip Request Form

Dear Educator,

Thank you for your interest in bringing your students to the Safari Park! The form below will allow you to register for a self-guided visit to the Safari Park located in Escondido, California. To book a field trip to the San Diego Zoo please visit their website. By filling out the form below, you confirm that you qualify for our discounted education admissions and that you agree to and understand all field trip and Safari Park policies and procedures.

Reservations must be made at least 2 weeks (10 business days) prior to your visit date and every effort will be made to book your group for your first choice date. Groups that have made their reservation at least 2 weeks in advance will receive free parking. The drivers will only have to reference that they are on a school trip with your group's name at the parking gate. Any reservations made within 2 weeks will be charged a $25 late fee and will not receive free parking, which is currently $15 per car. Buses park for free. School and youth groups without reservations pay regular admission and parking rates.

Upon arrival to the Safari Park, please approach any available ticket window to confirm your attendance numbers and submit any payment due with cash, check (payable to San Diego Zoo Global), or credit card (the card holder must be present at the time of check-in). Purchase orders may be used but must be received via email at least 1 week before your visit. The entire group must enter together to qualify for the discounted rate. Late arrivals will be charged the regular admission rates. Parents and chaperones will not receive the school discounted admission rate if they pay separately from your group.

PLEASE NOTE: This form does not guarantee a reservation. Your reservation is not confirmed until you receive your confirmation with your order number and visit date via email. For any questions and concerns, please contact the Education Department by email at or by phone at 760-738-5057.
