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

It is a very nice Zoo, clean and animals looked good, but not as big as you think. The gorillas are awesome, and the pandas are super cute. You could see the place in about two hours without misiing something. It is a good complement to the Atlanta City Pass that includes 5 attractions.

The Atlanta Zoo was great. While there was a crowd, one had the ability to see all the exhibits. The pandas were our favorites. The grounds were very clean and the restroom facilities were clean as well. The choice of food and beverages was extensive. It was well worth the cost of admission. Parking, however, is difficult.

It was forecasted to rain on the day we visited - 50% discount! Nice surprise. They also offer AAA discount. We arrived just before opening and headed directly for the Panda exhibit. Saw the twins as they entered the exhibit with their mom. So cute! Lots of baby animals to see. Worth a stop.

Wonderful moderate sized zoo with a great mix of animals and attractions both inside and out. Staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. Particularly enjoyed seeing the four pandas in the panda facility. A must see when visiting Atlanta

foliage seemed to be a little over grown. staff was very friendly and helpful although many of the younger staff had their noses buried in the mobile devices. the habitats seemed to be very small for elephants. Seeing the Panda twins was wonderful.

Accessible only by working through Grant Park but that's a pretty walk. We WERE lucky that it wasn't raining. Used City Passes to by pass the lines. We saw only the animals that we couldn't see in our own zoo and it still took 3 hours. Staff was friendly and gave information. Pressed Pennies and medallions throughout the park make... More

I took my 13 year old son on a Sunday. We spent 2 hours including lunch, but we did not see any shows. The walk is easy, mostly flat with a lot of shade. We felt it was fairly priced for admission and food. The habitats don't seem too small and there are lots of enrichment items for the animals... More

Probably wouldn't have made the trek, but we had the tickets from city pass...glad we did. Great exhibits, lots of babies and the gorillas is a must see. We were fortunate that they were active and playing. Good way to spend a few hours.

Great exhibits, but I had planned on it taking longer than 2 hours!!! Don't waste the money on the 3 minute train ride. The panda babies are the only thing that makes this zoo worth it!!! Arrive early to find parking!!! Parking lot is extremely small!!!
