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.

This zoo is by far one of the greatest zoo's ever!! They have many, many animals and exhibits. The zoo staff is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. The tour of the zoo takes approximately 2-3 hours. There is a petting zoo and you can feed some of the animals.

I had planned a three hour visit at the zoo and paid $32 + tax for adult admission, plus the cost to get there as there is no public transportation to this area. I really wanted to spend a bit of time visiting with the twin pandas that are marketed all over the city! Not only was the panda exhibit... More

We try to visit Zoo Atlanta once a year when we visit family. The animals are all in very nice and clean habitats and appear very healthy. There are many spots to get a close look at them. The zoo has a nice flow that makes it easy to see everything. There is plenty of shade to get out of... More

Go early..go straight to the Panda exhibit..So amazing. It was truly a mind blowing experience to watch them play and eat..My pictures are outstanding...Now the zoo is small. Had a nice play area for the kids. They got to go to a splash area which was nice cause it was 99 out!!@

Clean, pretty and fun. Just don't eat there, the cafeteria there is really bad. Lots of restrooms, conveniently distributed. Rest areas too.

I enjoyed the whole zoo attractions from the African Rain Forest. The kid's petting zoo. The Chinese area where the pandas were located. The other African area where the monkeys were. I enjoyed seeing the giraffes being fed. They had all types of turtles,snakes and other reptile species that I never heard of and seen. To see the whole zoo... More

We are used to the Detroit Zoo spacious and lots of animals. Atlanta is much smaller but it was great the animals were lively. We had less walking to see more animals and the tree coverage made the heat less irritating, a more enjoyable visit. Definitely recommend and will go back.
