Zoo Knoxville is the beginning of a beautiful and wildly fun adventure!

As one of the premiere zoological experiences in the Southeast, we’re committed to educating and inspiring. We feature acres of spine-tingling adventure, including one of our new experiences, Asian Trek. Inside you’ll find Tiger Forest and Langur Landing & Gibbons Trails, where Arya the tiger, Opie the langur, and Georgie the gibbon live. Don’t forget Lincoln the red panda in Red Panda Village, or our favorite gorillas, baby Andi, Obi and Ubuntu in Gorilla Valley! They’re some of our guests’ favorite animals to see.

The Clayton Family Amphibian and Reptile Campus, known as the ARC, is a 2.5-acre state-of-the-art that brings exciting new species such as Cuban crocodiles, a greenhouse that allows guests to enter and watch herpetologists at work, and outdoor wetlands to explore.  Inside the center, interactive technology immerses guests in virtual habitats to interact with reptiles like never before.
