Disclosure: Mike and I were invited to the 'breakfast with the penguins' media event.
If you haven't been to the San Diego Zoo yet this summer, now is the time, as they opened the first phase of the new Conrad Prebys Africa Rocks exhibit on July 1st, which also incorporates a special new event where you get to enjoy breakfast with the penguins.
This new exhibit is home to endangered African penguins, which are on exhibit at the Zoo for the first time in 35 years. You will be able to see these endangered penguins from viewing areas above-water and underwater the 200,000 gallon saltwater pool they share with leopard sharks.
Breakfast with the penguins happens before the Zoo opens to the public. There is a buffet breakfast that you can enjoy while you watch the African penguins swim and play! Plus, you will get to enjoy a special keeper talk, and an animal presentation with an African animal before visiting the exclusive penguin beach. You can purchase tickets for this special event here.
Tip: Look closely at each penguin, they've all been given names.
You can learn more about this new exhibit on the San Diego Zoo website.
