Bring your whole herd to Zoo Atlanta! A proud accredited member of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), the gold standard for animal care and welfare, Zoo Atlanta has a mission to save wildlife and their habitats through conservation, research, education and engaging experiences. The all-new African Savanna is a legendary landscape with new habitats for elephants, giraffes, warthogs, meerkats and ostriches. Highlights of the elephant habitat include Abana Pond, the largest of the complex’s three water features, a pond with 360-degree access and a gentle slope for ease of use by multiple elephants. Take a trip to Scaly Slimy Spectacular: The Amphibian and Reptile Experience, home to more than 70 species in the world’s first LEED Gold-certified reptile and amphibian complex.
Throughout the day, join a range of educational conversations with animal experts. Many of these include an opportunity to watch the animals during their feeding times. Watch animals in action as they show off their natural behaviors and amazing adaptations in dynamic wildlife presentations. If you're traveling with children, make sure to visit the KIDZone and Naked Mole Rat Playgrounds, with plenty of opportunities to play, climb, explore, or burn off energy! In the summer, cool down at the Splash Fountain. Grab a bite to eat at one of our restaurants, including Nourish Café, offering salads, sandwiches, flatbreads, and other tasty bites.
