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.

Pandas!

We loved the baby pandas! There aren't many zoos that have them. They were adorable! Great playground area for little ones too!

All I should say is PANDAS! Any time you can see a baby panda you should do it. I would say this is a must see place for families.

I went to Zoo Atlanta with my 2yr old nephew, sister, and mother. I think this is a great family place and would go again, but keep in mind that there is limited indoor seating in the food areas, bathrooms aren't everywhere. I would still recommend just keep that in mind for young kids, especially if it's hot outside.

We went very early in the mroning and was able to see all the animals. The only thing that we did not like was the train ride that cost us $$$ just went in a little circle. You dont really get to see anything like the one in MS that goes around a lot of the animal exhibits. If you... More

My expectations for the zoo where so so considering that my local zoo (Palm Beach Zoo) is small. But... from the first exhibit to the last I was in awe. In awe with the theming, the lamdscape amd topography and most important with how well cared and happy the animals looked. About three hours were enough to enjoy all the... More

Went to see pandas and not disappointed. Happily surprised at the quality of the rest of the zoo as well. Not large but very animal centric and VERY friendly folks that work there. We utilized the deal between the cab company and zoo making it easy to get there from downtown. We are now official zoo members even though we... More

It was nearly $100 for our family of four (baby was free). We ended up spending a few hours, but we've been to much larger and nicer zoos that charge less. My middle child loved the pandas though!

I have visited tons of zoos while traveling but this one is still my favorite. The grounds are well kept and there are tons of activities for the entire family. The food prices are reasonable. You can spend an entire day here and not get bored.

First taste of the Atlanta Zoo was pleasant. Enjoyed walking around and seeing all the animals. The monkeys were great and so close up. Shops were well stocked, and not over priced. Didn't eat there so can't comment on the food. I would happily visit again.

Not as big as I would have thought for a city as big as Atlanta, but that was ok because you can see it all in one afternoon. One thing that stood out is they kept the petting zoo poop free, that was a nice surprise. There are lots of benches around if you need a rest.
