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. « less

Our little daughter loves animals, so a visit to the Atlanta Zoo had to happen. The zoo has a parking, but it's very limited, so if you want to park close by, come in around opening time. We were in luck and found a space just one street away. It was a warm day, but there is lots of shade... More

This zoo was fantastic. The grounds are pretty small but the exhibits they do have are top notch. They have 4, yes 4 groups of gorillas. The main group they had contained around 17 animals with yearlings and infants. They also had more than one group of orangutans two of which also had babies! We were the first ones in... More

We visit zoos every where we travel and this one ranks at the top of our list! The animal enclosures allow up close and personal encounters and are true to the animals natural habitats. There were baby pandas born recently and the zoo did a wonderful job of showcasing them! When arriving you are given a list of feeding times... More

I don't know why we hadn't been to the Atlanta Zoo sooner!! I wish we had. My children ((ages 2-4-7)) really enjoyed themselves. My 4 year especially loved the "Petting Farm"...the goats were so calm, relaxed & cute!! There was so much for the kids to do....they enjoyed the train ride, carousel, the rock climbing wall ((make sure to bring... More

Zoo Atlanta is one of my favorite zoos we've ever visited. The zoo is very clean, the animal enclosures are well kept and roomy for the animals and while there are lots of visitors on the weekends, there is plenty of room for visitors to spread out so it's doesn't feel cramped. The park is nicely laid out, with plenty... More

When we first got to the zoo, we were excited to find out that they're a "sister zoo" with Columbia, SC's Riverbanks Zoo and because we have a membership there, we got a discount from our tickets. This zoo is huge and has so many things to do, for adults and kids alike. We were able to spend a full... More

For me, any day at the zoo if always a good day. The Atlanta zoo is not the best I have ever been to, but is better than average. I spend around 2-3 hours walking around and taking pictures. They have a good variety of animals and they all appeared very well cared for. I think the lion and her... More

We had a great day at this zoo. Lots of active animals to see. The pandas were adorable! Enjoyed feeding the giraffes. We ended our day at the play area that had a train, carousel, rock climbing and playground. These rides do cost additional but you can buy a wristband or it's included in the citypass. TIP...buy a citypass...it will... More
