Experience the sights and sounds of the Atlanta zoo! With 13,000 animals of 200 different species you are bound to meet your favorite animal. Going to the zoo is much more than just observing the magnificent creatures, there are wildlife shows, keeper talks, training demos, playgrounds and even a petting zoo.
Don’t just admire from a far, now guests are allowed to feed the giraffes and birds! Purchase romaine lettuce for only three dollars from your Twiga Terrace Giraffe Guide during your visit and get to feed it to the giraffes. Kids will love getting up close to these spectacular animals. You will also be able to purchase seed sticks for only one dollar and be able to feed it to more than 500 free-flying birds.
Kids will also love the rides in the zoo. They will be thrilled to ride their favorite endangered animals on the Nabisco Endangered Species Carousel! The older kids will enjoy climbing the 24 foot climbing wall. They will be safely harnessed in in case they don’t make it all the way. Families can take a break and ride the Georgia Natural Gas Blue Flame Express train that will give you a tour of outer parts of the zoo perimeter.
Don’t forget to check out the gift shop filled with all kinds of different toys, games and books. You’ll find a great souvenir!
