My kids loved this zoo as well as my husband and I. I was expecting a very hot day being that we were there in mid-July. I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of shading due to the trees that they have at this zoo. I would say 80 percent shaded throughout the entire zoo. Although it was still quite warm, the tree coverage made it quite comfortable. The animals were out and about and my kids loved it. We were able to take great pictures. The one animal my daughter was looking forward to seeing they didn't have, the otherwise, it an awesome experience for the family.

It was our first trip to the zoo and we took our son for his first birthday and we all loved it! We had purchased the Safari annual membership package which offers two adults, two guests, and up to four kids from 3-17 in at a time, so if you go more than twice it pays for itself - plus the money is going to a great organization, so it's a win-win scenario. We went for the afternoon on a Tuesday and it was pretty crowded, but we had no problem seeing all the animals and getting close enough for our little one to enjoy them too! Our favorites were the gorillas, pandas,elephants, and the lions. When our son gets older I'm sure he'll love the kid's playground and the small number of "rides" they have available for purchase ($9 for unlimited rides for members - $10 for the public). The zoo was clean, we'll maintained, and all the staff were super knowledgeable and friendly! We can't wait for our next visit! Also we loved that parking was free!

This is my zoo. I reserve the right to say that as a member. Anyway, a day at the zoo is relaxing for me. It's informative and a pleasure to take in the sites. The animals are loved by their keepers and one of my favorite things is just running into a keeper at the habitat who will then answer questions and talk with you about the animals. The habitats are nice too. It's so nice to see actual habitats for the animals to live in and not the cages of old. I generally spend a lot of time at the great ape habitat and the Orangutan habitat (shout out to the most awesome resident: Chantek!!!). But I also love visiting those pandas and the ever shy Biinturong. Actually, I love visiting all of the wonderful residents of Zoo Atlanta!!! Go today and spend the day!!!

I wanted to take my mom to the Zoo, get ready to pay $45 for just two people. Are you kidding me, that doesn't include any of the Zoo events or rides or food... The Zoo use to be the ideal place to go have fun enjoy on a cheap budget, not that I'm cheap or broke.

Nice zoo. The giraffe weren't out for petting so make sure to check with zoo if this is something you want to experience because they are out during certain times. The petting zoo was also cool. Had a good time. Great for kids and adults.

I visited here on a weekend getaway and absolutely loved it! Staff friendly and approachable . Beautiful exhibits, little pricy on food/water, but that's expected, clean exhibits and public areas/restrooms, fun and affordable merch and admission was a steal! I'd absolutely go again!

It has been several years since visiting a zoo. I have no desire to return. I recall well my last visit. A room size bird cage on my right was the first showcase on a journey that would lead to more views of animals, birds and reptiles. But a commotion in the birdcage temporarily stalled my journey. An obviously distressed bird sprinted back and forth along the front of the cage as it held a dead baby bird in its beak. The lifeless body flopped to the movement of the parent sprinting frantically from one spectator to the other. The bird appeared as though it was offering the dead offspring to the onlookers or begging help from its human captors. Us spectators caught off guard peered into the cage. The bird went to the far corner where another tall and beautiful white feathered adult bird was watching over a second dead baby bird and releasing the first dead baby from its beak, picked up the second dead bird and sprinted back to the front of the cage. It continued with such loud distressing sounds the growing crowd of spectators unable to move on watched, startled. No one appeared to be enjoying the moment. The kids were accusing the bird of being bad because of what it held in its beak and the adults like myself were helplessly listening to and watching the frantic bird while we uttered things like 'what's going on,' and ‘the babies are dead.’ After leaving the zoo that day I realized there was something I could have done. I hoped another spectator did what I had failed to do: Find a zoo staff and request removal of the dead birds from the cage. Those parents need not watch their offspring rot. It was late winter and we were all clad in our warm clothing. In contrast the metal cage enclosed a barren ground and the two adult birds with no presence of a nest. In the wild, these birds would have had the freedom to collect twigs and other building material for a nest in preparation for the new births. But not so in a cage. The size of the dead offsprings indicated they had survived several days. Since only the two adult birds were being showcased for zoo visitors and not their offsprings, caring for the surplus may not have been the zoo's priority. Donated dollars can only stretch so far. The understanding that animals, birds and other living things suffer the distresses of captivity has reduced my enjoyment of zoo visitation to zero.

Park is pretty big. Didn't get a chance to see much of the pandas though. They were cleaning there exhibit area. Over all it was fun.
