North Georgia Zoo & Farm/Wildlife Wonders
North Georgia Zoo & Farm (NGZ) is home to over 300 animals. NGZ is known for its outreach programs called Wildlife Wonders- Zoo To You which started in 1995. Wildlife Wonders was featured on ‘Dirty Jobs’ and also provides 1000’s of educational outreach programs each year. Wildlife Wonders opened their doors for guests to come visit during the fall of 2010 and the name was changed to North Georgia Zoo & Farm. They have earned these titles because of the unique and hands on experiences they offer. Sign up for animal encounters with Otters, Kangaroos, Wolves, Zebras and more. Enjoy a reptile encounter and get hands-on with everything from alligators to large snakes. Take a wagon ride to see exotic livestock, learn about the rare breed livestock breeding program and feed the camels! Guided Wildlife Walks are provided during regular business hours and offer a chance to learn more about and get up close with animals such as Cougars, Lemurs, Monkey, Birds of Prey and many others. The petting zoo and farm animal area is a low cost option that is great for kids and adults alike and introduces visitors to over a dozen different farm animal breeds plus other animals such as giant tortoise, deer, parrots, baby camel. Baby animals are always available to pet and feed in the petting zoo area but come in the spring and you may even see one being born!
