North Carolina Zoo Website

The North Carolina Zoo features more than 1,600 animals and 52,000 plants. In addition to their abundance of natural life, the zoo also features a dino bus, which takes attendees to see animatronic dinosaurs, paddle boat rides on the North America Lake, giraffe feedings, playgrounds, and so much more!

Seeing the entire zoo takes anywhere from 4-6 hours, and is divided into two regions – Africa and North America. If you arrive mid-day, you might choose to tour just one region. Once you arrive, you can check the boards near the admissions windows for feeding times, keeper talks, and check to see which animals might be off exhibit for the day.
