Visiting in the first two weeks of December?

Please be advised that the Zoo Atlanta Horticulture Team will be doing mandatory tree work in a portion of The Ford African Rain Forest beginning Monday, December 2 and continuing weekdays only through Friday, December 13.

During this project, Gorilla Habitats 3 and 4 and the area from Willie B.’s restaurant up to Amy’s Tree Theater (to include the restaurant, the restrooms near Willie B.’s and nearby nursing stations) will be temporarily closed to guests. Although Scaly Slimy Spectacular will remain open, the walkway leading to the path to the complex will be temporarily inaccessible to strollers and wheelchairs.

Gorillas may still be visited at Gorilla Habitats 1 and 2, weather and temperatures permitting. We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.

Crawl, stomp, slither, swim, fly, walk, or drive on over!

Whether you’re looking for behind-the-scenes Wild Encounters, a leisurely stroll through the all-new African Savanna or a Scaly Slimy Spectacular experience, Zoo Atlanta offers something for everyone – including a range of fun opportunities for kids. So what are you waiting for? Bring yourself and your herd to Zoo Atlanta today.
