North Georgia Zoo in Cleveland, GA is offering the perfect way to have a fun, family experience
while still practicing social distancing. On Saturday and Sunday May 7th & 8th, enjoy the “Social Distancing Drive Through Zoo” experience!
Drive through the “other side” of the zoo, where, from the comfort of your car you can see
zebras, camels, water buffalo, wart hogs, llamas, etc., as well as farm animals like sheep and
goats. In fact, you will see over 80 animals, and you never have to leave your car! You will also
be able to purchase food for the animals, which you can toss to them from your car window.
There is no charge for the “Drive Through”, but donations are appreciated. Also, the drive is
fairly bumpy, and there are two creek crossings, so vehicles that have a low clearance are not
recommended. It is also asked that you leave your own pets at home for this experience.
North Georgia Zoo, like so many other private businesses, has been stretched by the current
economic crisis brought on by COVID-19. Your gifts and donations will be used to feed the 400 animals who call the zoo their home.
No reservations are needed for the “Drive Through”, so jump in your car and come for a visit!
North Georgia Zoo is located at 2912 Paradise Valley Road, Cleveland, GA 30528. Visit their website at www.northgeorgiazoo.com.
North Georgia Zoo is NOT a 501c3 tax-exempt organization, and contributions/donations are NOT tax deductible.
