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.

Quit lion around, and dare to come closer!
