Elephant exhibit at NC zoo

The North Carolina Zoo invites you to an adventure as BIG as all outdoors

Visit the North Carolina Zoo for fun with family and friends, for face-to-face animal encounters, to enchant and educate children or perhaps to enjoy the glorious gardens.

Connect with wildlife from two different continents as you explore 500 acres of exhibits carefully constructed to resemble natural habitats.  Walk from Africa’s grasslands to North America’s Arctic coast. 

Learn how the Zoo works to conserve and protect wild things and wild places.

Escape to the forests and streams of North Carolina’s beautiful Central Piedmont.  Located at the foot of the Uwharrie Mountains, the Zoo is just outside the charming southern town of Asheboro.

Discover more than 1,600 animals and 52,000 plants along five miles of shaded pathways.

North Carolina Zoo... connect your life to wildlife.
