    I highly recommend the elephants, bush dogs, gorillas, and of course, the pandas. If you ever think you may want to have children - come here for a birth control realization.

    Entire zoo is wheelchair and stroller accessible. That being said, whichever way you choose to make your loop, your first half will be uphill, and some parts are steep.

    Great for outdoor adventures, bar-b-ques, and close to the heart of the city. $40/person/day or $100/family/year. You tell me what's the better deal. Second season as a member holder and loving it.

    Awesome zoo, specially by the pandas and Gorillas! Avoid the long eating lines in the park by going to a nearby place around the park, you can stamp your ha dado to return at the entrance.

    It was hot and the animals weren't up and about will try again in the fall. Overall the kids had a good time. The ppl drawing u as a cartoon in the park are really great, it only take 10mins.

    Zoo Atlanta is not just the pride of our city, it is one of the most respected zoos in the nation/world. The conservation, husbandry and preservation efforts here are wonderful!

    If you want to buy panda gifts, do so at the gift shop right by the panda exhibit as the main gift shop at the entrance is strangely devoid of all very many panda items.

    Days with light rain are the BEST. We don our rain boots and go looking for the biggest puddles. The animals are more active and it feels like a private viewing with no one else around.

    make sure to get there by 10 a.m, at the latest. it gives you enough time to see the exhibits before all of the feedings. the orangutan feeding was extraordinary!

    Get to the zoo early for the best FREE parking. If you can't park in the lots, try street parking a few blocks east or west of the zoo.

    Meet America’s only twin panda cubs or take on the Safari Day Camp to experience up-close animal encounters and learn about animals in a fun way.

    The new reptile house is gorgeous- never thought I would use that word for a reptile house. 100% better than the old one. Bright and spacious. Worth the trip!

    The panda encounter is pricey but you won't find another opportunity close to it outside of China! Kicking myself that we didn't do it- guide had even offered a discount for our 1.5 year old.

    WEATHER ADVICE! If it is to cold or to hot certain animals won't be out or in view. If it is below 48 degrees or feels below that chances r alot of animals won't be out. Think before you go!

    This place is awesome. We drive from Kentucky, and it's worth the trip every time. Especially the pandas!

    Went during the summer and the weather made the animals lazy and unappealing. Maybe going during the fall or spring is a better idea.

    Often-overlooked animals: the giant tortoises near the exit; the hornbills, who often flaunt food in their beaks at passersby (usually dead mice); the Koopaesque snapping turtle in the reptile house.

    The zoo opened in 1889 whenbusinessman George V. Gress purchased a bankrupt traveling circus & donated the animals to Atlanta. In 1999 the zoo joined only 2 other zoos in housing giant pandas.

    When the city's outdated zoo was named one of the country's 10 worst in the 80s, Willie B. came to the rescue and stole our hearts. In 2000, more than 8,000 mourners joined for a tearful memorial.

    A zoo is a zoo is a zoo. Nothing special except for the pandas. Don't go when it's hot; the animals want to rest in the shade just as much as you do

    The season pass is worth every penny! It costs less than two trips, and allows you to make short visits without feeling guilty about not seeing everything every time.
