FOLLOW THE TRACKS ... What affectionately began over 20 years ago as a private collection of exotic and domestic animals has become a delightful zoo and a relaxing escpate for the entire family.

Waccatee Zoo is located within 500 acres of private, carefully preserved, wooded property. Along winding trails, beneath shady trees, you'll find over 100 species of animals, all treated like family. This zoo receives no state or government funding, just lots of TLC! Located where the Waccamaw River, Intracoastal Waterway and Socastee Creek join, Waccatee Zoo is a natural wildlife sanctuary and breeding ground for many species of migratory birds. At several times of the year it's not uncommon to see more than 1,000 beautiful egrets or heron in one small spot. Enjoy fun food from our snack shop, relaz and enjoy the view!

Meet the chimp-who loves to watch soap operas on his own TV, Booger the Black Bear, and Zig Zag the Zebra. Herds of buffalo and deer roam the grassland, while big cats like the leopard, lion, cougar and tiger eye you up close. Children love the many petting areas and the menagerie of unusual wildlife. Stop by and see just who we've missed in this mix, we're sre there are quite a few yet unamed!
