Fun on the Outside, Serious about Animals Inside!

As one of the premiere zoological experiences in the Southeast, we’re committed to educating and inspiring. We feature acres of spine-tingling adventure spread across our three distinct experiences, Asian Trek, Grasslands Africa, and long awaited ARC—The Clayton Family Amphibian and Reptile Campus. As our guest, you’ll have the opportunity to visit with diverse and thrilling animals in each of these three experiences. Our animal friends range from Malayan Tigers and Silvered Leaf Langurs in Asian Trek, to African Elephants and Southern White Rhinos in Grasslands Africa, and even Cuban Crocodiles and Golden Dart Frogs in ARC! Meet these amazing animals, interact with our zoo experiences like the splash pad, and so much more.

ARC is here! Explore the 2.5-acre, state-of-the-art facility that house a conservatory and venomous gallery where guests can get close to some of our most exhilarating poisonous species and immersive experiences, a greenhouse that includes our radiated tortoises and unique tropical plants from Southeast Asia, and a wetlands center with marshes and bogs that you can explore on lily pads. The fun and excitement of the ARC experience will be something you never forget! Otter Creek at the Clayton Family ARC Campus will open Spring 2022.
