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.

The Atlanta Zoo is amazing! Great animals and very friendly staff. We had a great time. The lions were so close in the close viewing area, it was amazing. We were amazed by the animals in the reptile and amphibian house. The zoo has plenty of shade, too.
The zoo was amazing! I loved this zoo! Parking could be hard if it was very busy, but I think the price made up for it. Parking is FREE if you can find it. Something I am thankful for! There is some construction currently, but it is well marked, and communicated in advance. My wife an I absolutely loved the reptile house. It has a ton of snakes. That was something that was nice that I did not realize they had before getting there.
I Had A Great Time W/My Significant & Step Daughter. It's Definitely The Place To Go For Some Family Bonding. I Probably Enjoyed The Pandas & Tigers The Most. I Think That The Staff Can Be A Little More Engaging To Make Things Better & Educate The Children & Adults On Some Interesting Fun Facts'!
Me and my family love the Atlanta zoo! It is a great time walking around with the family and looking at the new animals and the ones we have seen year after year. There is a new safari exhibit coming next year and the gift shop always has neat items. I paid about 120 for my family membership and it was worth every penny!!
Always a great experience with my family no matter how many times we go. We've had family passes for several years and it's an amazing bargain. They're always adding new exhibits and features so it never gets old. One of the highlights of Atlanta for sure.
