A Zoo that Offers Wild Fun … with or without Animals

If you can do it outside, you can do it at Chehaw.

Chehaw, located in Albany, Ga., is 800 acres and has a very large zoo with large exhibits with a lot of natural space, so you’re able to see these animals interact a lot of the times the way they would in the wild.  But the animals are only part of the attraction.

If you can do it outside, you can do it at Chehaw. It’s not just an AZA accredited zoo. There is mountain biking, BMX track, RC track and a disc golf course.

There is something for everybody out here. From the toddler who wants to go play on the little play park swings and slides, to the older child who wants to do something really awesome and different out here, to the adult who just has an appreciation for nature.

People are encouraged to come out for an entire day if they can. Come out in the morning walk around the zoo while its nice and cool. You can come and feed a rhino up close and personal with your own hands. You can watch the cheetahs run on the lower course. You can feed the alligators in their own swamp.


Chehaw is open Monday through Sunday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. with access to the zoo from 9:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.
