Zoo Atlanta is one of only four zoos in the U.S. housing giant pandas.

Meet and feed one of Zoo Atlanta’s world-famous black-and-white bears during an exclusive behind-the-scenes encounter! During this encounter, you will be accompanied by an Exhibit Interpreter around the outside of the panda habitat while learning what makes giant pandas so unique. You will then take a behind-the-scenes tour of The Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation Giant Panda Conservation Center and meet the professionals in charge of the giant pandas’ daily care. Finally, no Wild Encounter would be complete without the opportunity to meet and feed an adult panda one of their favorite treats!

  • Meet at the giant panda habitat 15 minutes before the Wild Encounter.
  • Please note that availability is limited for all Wild Encounters.
  • Please note that for human and animal safety, all interactions with bears are through a safety barrier.
Days Available: Sunday, Monday, Friday, and Saturday at 11:00 a.m.
