This extraordinary zoo, one of the oldest in the U.S., underwent a multi-million dollar renovation in the 1980s and is still expanding. Its landscaping replicates the natural habitats of the numerous animals, some of which are endangered species. Two panda bears from China delight the crowds, and groups of gorillas separated by moats do their own share of entertaining.

Zoo Atlanta is area wise not too big, Many of the animals are just one or two in number, However, there is a large collection of Gorillas . The two Pandas are also very appealing. The feeding time for the giraffes where the kids can feed the giraffes in their own hand is nice. The newly opened Reptiles section is... More

I had not visited Zoo Atlanta for several years. I was impressed by the more natural habitats for the large animals. The staff was enthusiastic. The layout is well organized and the park is clean.

Wonderful exhibits, lots of animals that you never get to see and they obviously have spent a lot of time on the habitats for each animal. it flows beautifully, lots of shade as you walk around and as I said amazing animals.

Thank you for visiting Zoo Atlanta! We are glad you enjoyed your visit. Our horticulture team does a wonderful job planting and caring for the plants and trees around the zoo. In many cases, you can learn more by looking for a small sign near each plant or tree. Also, visit our Carnivorous Plant Bog near the Complex Carnivore exhibits... More

It was one of the hottest days in June when we went to the zoo. Luckily there were many air conditioned exhibits. If you like pandas or reptiles this is the place for you. Plenty of active Gorillas with their young too.

I bring the kids all the time knowing they will have an amazing time. To see the kids super excited makes me happy. We do everything when we go, the train, water play area, carousel etc.

It was a good time. The gorillas were awesome. I like the way the zoo was set up. The new reptile house was really nice. Even on a hot July day the zoo was nicely shaded and not as hot as I thought.
