We visited the North Georgia Zoo today using a Groupon to get in. Overall it is a cute little place. The guided tour took about an hour and walked through the back of the Zoo. This is the only way to view the various "Zoo" creatures. They've got wolves, fox, kangaroo and birds on display. The tour winds down to... More

My eleven-month-old grandson and I visited the petting zoo today. The girls went shopping, and I won the coin-toss. I read some reviews before visiting. Ignore the opinions of the naysayers. They charged me eight bucks, and my grandson got in free. I feel like I robbed someone. We had at least a thousand dollars worth of fun! The animals... More

My husband and I did the wildlife package with the camel feeding adventure. The petting zoo area was fascinating because there were so many different types of sheep, goats, miniature or baby alpaca or llama?? and the wierdest-looking chickens! I was interested in photographing as many animals and birds as possible and the petting zoo area was perfect for that,... More

I purchased my tickets online, based on what I saw on the website. Upon arriving at the "zoo" we were shocked at the appearance. It looked extremely dirty, and it did not look like a professional zoo. We were very disappointed. We didn't even get out of our car, we just left. Additionally, the ticket prices are WAY over-priced. Had... More

Like all zoos it's not cheap. Be advised this one is no different: $23 per adult, more if you want to see the camel, even more if you want to see the lizards - family of 5 with teenagers are going to spend well over $120 with tax. But it is an up close experience and the guided tour for... More

I tried to contact the zoo about 2 weeks before our trip in order to book a zoo package and was unable to get a hold of anyone. I called the day before our visit to once again try to book a package and was told, "the B team" was in the office and they were unable to answer questions... More

It seemed a tad exploitive. While I realize this is not a "sanctuary" say like Noah's Ark, or Big Cat Rescue or The Wild Animal Sanctuary, for the money being charged they really should have better and bigger enclosures in some instances. One of the beavers we saw seemed incredibly bored and just wanted out. The cougar was over in... More

Wonderful visit to the North Georgia Zoo! After driving by many times, I really didn't know what to expect. We did the Adventure Package which included the Wildlife Walk, the Petting Zoo, the Camel Encounter and the Reptile Encounter. I was so surprised (absolutely pleasantly surprised) by the guided Wildlife Walk! The enclosures were well maintained and clean, the animals... More

I did the Ultimate tour and it was incredible! You really get to interact with a huge number of animals. My favorite was the wolf puppies. The staff is also very friendly.
