From native black bears to cinnamon bears and grizzlies, the Cherokee Bear Zoo on Tsalagi road is home to all types of bears. Visitors can observe these furry creatures as they play, run and climb. People can even feed and pet select bears during designated time slots. This zoo is also home to exotic tigers, raccoons, albino groundhogs and lemurs apart from the bears. The bears are kept in open habitats and not in cages, so the visitors can observe them in their natural environments.

  • could you please tell me your rates for taking a picture with a baby tiger or bear and will you have either one of them in September around the 20th to the 22 of this year couldn't find the rates anywhere thank you rita keys

    • Apart from the admission charges you pay (USD 6 per head),  you will have to pay USD 1 you get small food portions to feed them. If you want to take a picture with animals as well as feed and pet them, then the charges are somewhere around USD 20. I would suggest calling the zoo on 828-497-4525 to check if they are working on specific dates in September.
