Noah's Ark is simply remarkable. The animals and their stories of survival are heart warming. Each and every animal is well kept and the grounds are nicely maintained. During my visit my famIly & I truly felt welcomed; as staff members greeted us and gave insight in to the lives of the animals. I certainly plan on visiting again.

We spent the morning wandering around the park and saw several big cats and other wild animals in a natural setting. They all looked happy and healthy. The highlight is seeing BLT - a heartwarming success story. It's lion, tiger, and bear - OH my!

Another mystery tour led us to Noah's Ark. We were all amazed that we got as close to some of the animals as we did without being separated by a thick glass or 3 stories above the den. All of the animals were spectacular to view, especially the big tiger. The visitor center has 2 really big pythons to view... More

For travelers, Noah’s Ark is definitely worth a visit especially if you have children. It is within close distance to Interstate 75. They have a multitude of animals at the location and education information in the building. They take donations. They also have picnic tables should you decide to have lunch while visiting. Highly recommend the visit. It’s not every... More

Noah's Ark is a animal habitat for abandoned animals, some confiscated from sellers trafficking exotic animals illegally and others held in small side-show or circus pins or cages for most of their lives. This wonderful place was the dream of founder and director, Jama Connor Hedgecoth, who with her remarkable staff shelter, care for and feed over 1500 animals. My... More

Make time to go here. Very cool place. Free, they only ask for donations. Read the story on "BLT" before you go. It will make the visit even more enjoyable.

Noah's Ark is truly an amazing place and you can see the love that they have for these rescued animals. No special hype like the major theme parks. I would highly recommend the Walk on the Wild Tour. You're only a chain linked fence away from some beautiful animals and can take outstanding pictures!

My husband and I have been wanting to go for a few years. We went for our wedding anniversary. The volunteers were very helpful. The animals were very friendly. It was very clean. Surprisingly, no smell at all. My only issue was the fire ant hills. I wore sandals, mistake. Next time, I will wear close toed shoes.

We went on 10/4/14 for their Fall Festival and were quite impressed. Wild animals that have been confiscated or voluntarily surrendered have their forever home here. One habitat housed a lion, tiger and bear that are not found together in nature but live peacefully here. There are many types of birds and mammals, about 100 animal species live on the... More

This is a nice place to visit south of the city, not as many animals as Atlanta Zoo but this is more of a rescue sanctuary, which is great. There are Lion's, Tiger's, and Bears. This is a great place to take younger children, there is no entrance fee, but donations are recommended, it cost a lot of money to... More
