It began over twenty (20) years ago through affection for exotic and domestic animals. Today, it is a private collection of animals in a delightful zoological farm near Myrtle Beach. It is located within 500 acres of private, carefully preserved and wooded property. There are winding trails and shade trees where the Waccamaw River, Intracoastal Waterway, and Socastee Creek join. WACCATEE ZOO is a breeding ground for many species of migratory birds. There are thousands of egrets or heron standing together while herds of buffalo and zebra roam the grassland. There are big cats like leopard, lion, cougar, and tiger. Always fun is Chico the Chimp who watches his own TV. It’s an environment loved by children and respected by adults. WACCATEE ZOO is unique because it is nature themed and it is not a concrete jungle. There are over 100 species of animals on-site and it is a place where people can share the joy of nature’s sounds. For more information including directions and hours, call (843) 650-8500 or visit Groups are welcome but will need advance reservations.
