Zoos in South Carolina

Beaches, BBQs, and sweet tea - it can only be South Carolina! With wildlife, history, fun and culture, it makes for an incredible state for the whole family to visit. With a rich history from the Civil War, thrills from theme parks and that wonderful Southern hospitality - it makes for a fantastic family day out option!

ROAR! It's time to enjoy some animal fun at the many zoos in South Carolina. Whether it's the domestic animals that you love, exotic creatures from all around the world, classic zoos or adorable sanctuaries, South Carolina has something for you.

Let's start with those iconic zoo experiences. Every child should visit a zoo at one time, and South Carolina has you covered. A trip to Waccatee Zoo sees you explore 500 acres of private zoo with over 100 species of animals to meet! 

Then you have zoos like Greenville Zoo or Riverbanks Zoo, home to elephants, penguins, koalas, lions, and everything in between. A great learning experience for the kids!


It's not just the land animals that you can meet either! Explore the wonders of the ocean at Ripley's Aquarium and South Carolina Aquarium, or have a snap happy day at Alligator Adventure!

So why not visit the many zoos in South Carolina, and explore your WILD side on your next family day out!
