The difference: East Africa vs. San Diego or L.A. Well, about $11,000 if you do both tours, and travel from LAX to both African destinations. The zoo's Roar & Snore program starts at only $109 (adult). Add about $40 for gas. Entrees at Meals by Genet, 1053 S. Fairfax Ave., in Little Ethiopia start at about $10.
