Zoo Atlanta - Review

The Zoo goes with big, popular favorites – Gorillas, Orangutans, giant Pandas. Purchased from a bankrupt travelling circus by George V. Gress, the zoo didn’t gain much popularity, and a hundred years later, was termed as “possibly one of the worst zoos in the world”. But a 20 year revival and acquisition period later, the Zoo is Atlanta’s pride.

The Ford African rainforest has overseen the birth of eighteen Gorillas; the Living Tree House is a large aviary; Boundless Budgies houses more than 500 free-flying Parakeets that may be hand fed; the Trader’s Alley focuses on wildlife trade; complex Carnivores houses bush Dogs, Binturong, Fossa, a clouded Leopard and Sumatran Tigers; African Plains have Lions, Elephants, blue cranes Southern Ground Hornbills, Meerkats, Warthogs, Giraffes, Zebras and Ostrich.

Other exhibits include the Asian Forest, the World of Reptiles and the Children’s Zoo. The zoo isn’t very large, but its animal collection is excellent and extremely diverse. The staff is completely informed and ready for any questions you might have.

Zoo Atlanta, Atlanta Reviews

  • Had a great time. Lots of animals. (Turtle Overload) Lots of shaded areas throughout the zoo. Lots of restrooms very clean and clearly marked throughout. I appreciated the restaurant (The Wild Planet Cafe)with their efficiency. Got food quickly and was able to continue with my tour in a timely manner. Enjoyed the southwest salad with chicken and the cheeseburger and fries weren't bad at all.

  • We visited when it was under construction but it was still a great experience. Georgia libraries have a free family pass if you go Monday-Friday so if you live here take advantage of a free experience. Of course you will want to go back again and pay, it is worth it! There is also free parking and military (active and retired) are always free. We have a one and three year old so their favorite experience was the train ride and cool kiddie bathrooms in the kiddie area. They did want to ride the carousel and play on the playground too. They did not care much for the petting area, but they did enjoy the elephants and gorillas the most. They have fun personalities and interact with the guests. The staff also were helpful and informative if you go when they have scheduled events. The tree house for primates and birds was also fun and shaded which is great for families on hot days. My kids also loved the kimono dragon and were excited to see a real dragon. Nearby is the mole area that encourages kids to crawl and climb like moles. It is cute and kind of creepy, which is fun for kids.

  • I'm rating this 5 stars based on truly enjoying my time at the zoo. I will say it isn't the greatest or biggest zoo I've ever been to but it was very well kept and had a good variety of Animals. While it seems like the pandas were the star here I enjoy many of lesser known animals housed here, all of which offered nice views. The zoo is built into a park so there was plenty of shade so even in July I never truly felt hot. Certainly worth a visit if you're in town and I hope to come back and try one of the many animal encounters they offer.

  • We LOVE Zoo Atlanta! The new alpacas are a new favorite for our family and yesterday we got to watch the bird show that was terrific! These people truly love and care for the animals so well! If you're local take advantage of being close to one of the best zoos in the US! We would HIGHLY recommend the membership to anyone and the adventure plan (passports) for families!

  • Really hot on the day we went, but we had a great time. We had enough people to get the group price, including 8 kids from 3-12, and they all had a wonderful time. Definitely bring an extra change of clothes for kiddos because there is a free water area by the carousel and train. Bring some snacks and water if you don't want to spend a lot on food. Definitely stay hydrated. Overall great time.
