Waccatee Zoo

Located within a 500-acre farm in Socastee, the Waccatee Zoo contains over 100 species of animals. Meet Chico the Chimpanzee, Tony the Tiger, Booger the Bear, and Zig Zag the Zebra. Spend some time at the petting area where soft bunnies and baby goats nibble food right out of your more hand. From buffalo and deer to a variety of big cats, Waccatee Zoo is a wonderful way to spend the day. Waccatee Zoo is also a natural wildlife sanctuary and breeding ground for several species of migratory birds, as well as alligators.  

 

What affectionately began over 20 years ago as a private collection of exotic and domestic animals has become a delightful zoo and a relaxing escape for the entire family. Waccatee Zoological Farm 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 T.L.C.  Located where the Waccamaw River, Intercoastal 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 1000 beautiful egrets or heron in one small area.  Enjoy fun food from our snack shop, relax and enjoy the view! We simply love animals - and we always have.  We wanted to create a very natural place where people could walk around and enjoy our family.  We are not interested in a concrete jungle.  The interest shown by local people, and by church and school groups, have helped us decide to open Waccatee to the public."
