One of the ways we do this is offer a unique up close and personal with some of our amazing animal ambassadors. Join us for our new guided tours to give you the ultimate experience with some of the most amazing animals around
North Georgia Zoo is nestled
in the foothills of the
The zoo is located on 30 acres of beautifully wooded land and nice pasture. There is a tranquil waterfall
and a creek that winds its way through the zoo. This creek helps keep the air cool in the summer and provided hours of entertainment for the different animals here at the zoo..
North Georgia Zoo animals are loved and cared for by a passionate and educated staff.
This same staff is excited to have you come to us for the first time and learn more about the animals, enjoy interaction with many animals and have an experience you won't forget.
On the guided tour you will get to see where some of our animal ambassadors spend their time when they are not traveling.
All the animals have sufficient shade,
shelter and clean water.
The kangaroos, livestock, deer and other animals enjoy their lush pasture and large shade trees, while the wolves, wild cats, and birds of prey enjoy the forest surrounding their homes.
Enrichment is our priority.
We want our animals to have full lives. We provide that in many ways, such as the
many hours of training and interaction the animals get with their trainers and the time they spend interacting with the public.
During these performance programs, the animals experience new smells, new scenery and make new friends. When animals tire of traveling, we take them out of the rotation; we never force them into public interaction.
Enrichment can be as simple as giving a cardboard box to a primate (loads of entertainment)! A fresh cut pine branch will
give the phalangers hours of extra chewing.
Wallabies love step stools and wolves enjoy playing with huge deer bones. Give a parrot some corn on the cob or new wooden toys for hours of destruction and play. We are always adding new enrichment ideas for the animals!
