Overview

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.

Had a good time. My son fed the giraffe for a tiny fee, which was great. Did not have time to go thru the entire zoo, so had to decide what to cut out, which was sad.

It is a smaller zoo but very nice. The Panda attraction is great as there are both a Mom and Dad and two baby Pandas. The rest of the zoo is cute except for the elephant. The poor elephant is in too small an area...More

These encounters are extremely overpriced. Your guide tells you well known facts about pandas, that Google can tell you. You spend all that money to basically hear them talk. Then you get less than 5 mins to look at a panda in a barred cage,...More

I really wanted to see the pandas but so did everyone else, this was the only exhibit that seemed busy. The map was very useful to make sure that I saw everything that the zoo had to offer.

They are at different times. Today the gorillas are at 1:45. However, on Sept. 4, they're at 2:15 with the orangutans at 2:30. Check the Zoo Atlanta website for the complete schedule on the date you're going.
