• Limited Tram service available at this time

    Tram Services in Africa and Parking Lot Shuttles are not operating at this time.  Open-air trams at half capacity will be running from 10am until the park closes from Junction Plaza back to the North America entrance (one-way only). Zoo staff will not be loading any large strollers, wagons or Zoo rental strollers onto the trams, but you are welcome to bring a small stroller that folds and fits in the seat with you.

The North Carolina Zoo, located in the Uwharrie mountain range, has five miles of tree-lined trails which immerse visitors in beautiful, diverse and sometimes challenging terrain. Our Zoo is best experienced by using the trails; however, a Zoo-wide transportation system is available to help visitors navigate to three strategic locations inside the Park.
