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.

We love to take our kids to the zoo. We bought a season pass because there is so much to see and our toddlers' attention span never quite makes the whole trip. That being said, the season pass is such a value and we get to see the zoo during various seasons. I have been going to Zoo Atlanta my... More

The staff are super friendly and there are baby animals to see! One of only 4 zoos in the U.S. to see pandas! The baby gorilla right now is adorable! We live 2 ½ hours away, but we bought a membership because this zoo is worth it!

We've had one for 6 years now and it never gets old. I definitly suggest the safari pack because you get extra advantages that definitly pay... More

We loved the zoo and it is very well maintained and laid out well. Our last trip was unfortunately during a cold patch and a LOT of the animals were not out. The admission was discounted though so that was nice. I still recommend it as a must see no matter the weather!

Zoo Atlanta is a good size to cover by foot with kids. Or your grownup pals. The new reptile house is stunning. The Baby Pandas are one of the few things I can watch for hours and never get bored. Even when they are sleeping!

Sadly many animals never appeared. It was hot and stuffy, blacktop walkways and no water spray to keep cool like with other area attractions. Food too pricey, poor quality, no shows, and just generally boring. My youngest 2 boys asked to leave early.

Sadly like many of the exhibits in Atlanta, when it gets cold, the shut down a lot of the attractions, and also start a lot of construction projects BUT fail to notify you before you pay and walk in. Was extremely frustrated as a lot of animals were taken away due to weather. Would have been nice to not pay... More
