I liked this place way better than Zoo Atlanta. There seems to be a lot more space to make natural habitats for the animals. Plus, these animals weren't bred for captivity or bought to be put on display - this is a working rehabilitation center for stranded, stray, abused and neglected animals of all kinds. When we went they had 2 actual full-grown male lions that had been rescued. That was the highlight for me. The lions had lots of room to run around or lay in the sun in their enclosure.
The place is technically free, but it is recommended that you contribute since it runs on donations. There is a welcome building with restrooms and vending machine(s), but most people pack a lunch or bring snacks.
Noah's ark is an animal and child rescue place that is funded by donations only. They have free roaming pigs, emu's, lamas, deer, ponies and tons of other animals. The foster kids that live ther help take care of the animals and live there at the facility. There are picnic tables near the parking so you can eat before you go in. The place is huge and takes about 2 to 3 hours to see everthing. it is well worth it.
