Make a bee-line for the Atlanta Zoo and get your bongo, Bali mynah and Bog turtle fix for the effort only of strolling pleasant paved paths leading from the African wilds to Australia via good ol' American domestic critters. Lions, Tigers, lumbering elephants, bouncing kangaroos and pandas might be what you seek out first but give yourself plenty of time more to explore the Zoo Atlanta Horticulture displays, enjoy a ride on the Georgia Natural Gas Blue Flame Express Train, take a spin on the Nabisco Endangered Species Carousel and try your hand on the Rock Climbing wall. Educational programs for your young ones are also on offer throughout the year,check with information on your next visit for more details.
