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

We went for a one day visit. It was chilly that morning when they opened and offered us a discount admission. The day turned out to be a perfect zoo trip. I would defiantly recommend families to visit at least once. The gorillas were very entertaining and our favorite.

We went when the Gorillas were being fed treats from the keeper and they would get their apples and throw them back and forth and some came back to the keeper and to the side area. It was great amusement for all to watch and as the keeper was saying it was fun sort of game for the gorillas as... More

Not excellent, not very big but worth a visit we had been all around in two hours. It was a cool day and most animals out and about. Plenty of restaurants but lousy coffee!

One of the four US zoos that has pandas. Great layout! Friendly employees. Food is a little expensive. Allow 3-4 hours to see everything.

This is one of the best zoos I've seen. The animals all appeared to be healthy and well cared for. The Pandas are super cute. The gorilla enclosure is huge. Lots to see.

This zoo is expensive and very average for such a large city. It really doesn't have a lot of animals compared to other zoos. The highlight of the zoo is the kids zone area. They have a carousel, splash pad, and petting zoo with very gentle animals. They do have the giant pandas and lots of gorillas but those animals... More

The day that we went to the Zoo was a day where everyone in Atlanta must have decided to go...or so it seemed. The place was so busy that it was difficult to maneuver. The zoo, itself, was fascinating, and I can see why it is so popular. We took our daughter who was visiting from out of town, and... More

We chose a great day to go to the zoo. We went in the middle of August and the temperature was very pleasant. Also school had just started that week so no crowds. We were extremely pleased with the prices at the food area in the back. They did not seem to inflate the prices like a lot of attractions... More

We went Labor Day weekend so I expected it to be a little crowded. But with it being a holiday weekend, it surprisingly wasn't super packed. We went through the whole zoo in about 2.5 hours. It was great for the kids. We have a 3 & 5 year old so they loved seeing all the animals. Their favorite was... More
