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. Four panda bears from China delight the crowds, and groups of gorillas separated by moats do their own share of entertaining.

Zoo is amazing and educational. I suggest if you go in the early morning especially in the summer. The zoo staff does their best to protect the animals in the extreme summer heat. Price is affordable and reptile house is my personal favorite.

Best zoo around. There are tons of different animals and the staff is super friendly. We may be slightly biased as this is our home town

Zoo Atlanta has a great collection of animals, especially the gorillas and the pandas. But they are not displayed to attract as many people as possible. For example, when we were there, the overwhelming attendance was neighborhood moms and children. That is OK, but the other Atlanta attractions we visited were attended by a very large diverse audience from all... More

As a Zoo Lover, I really enjoyed this zoo. Clean and seemed as really taken good care. It was a bit busy, as it was summer, but still managed to feel comfortable. Kids love it!

I am in and wheelchair and it was to hilly for my granddaughter to put me through. I stayed up front long they went through and they enjoyed it very much. They said it was hot but the animals were nice to look at. Just wish it was more wheelchair friendly I did not enjoy it at all

Zoo Atlanta really impressed me. It was pretty big with well outlined exhibits. There was a lot of different animals with a lot of different view points per exhibit. There were some animals off exhibit (this I feel like is pretty normal) but overall great experience. One of the biggest perks is that you can bring in your own food... More

A bit disappointed. Too many animals weren't in their environments. The zoo itself really needs a good make over. The building around the zoo are starting to show their age and need repair..

We planned out this trip, heading out with family. The Zoo was fun and had a fair amount of things to do. There were a lot of animals that were hidden and/or sleeping during the afternoon visit. A few things could be kept up a little better. I'd try and visit earlier next time... so it was just average for... More

Its a very good zoo with a vast space and lot of animals. It has children's play area too. Only the food option was very limited. Some of the attractions were not available when we visited it.
