Waccatee Zoo, Myrtle Beach

1.4
#6 of 7 in Zoos & Aquariums in South Carolina
One of Myrtle Beach's secret gems, Waccatee Zoo shelters over 100 species of animals. Established in 1988 to house a private animal collection of a local family, this zoo now includes a 20 hectare (50 acre) viewing area offering visitors a chance to observe both exotic and domestic species including zebras, tigers, lions, leopards, horses, goats, ducks, and peacocks. The natural habitats spread over this wooded property also serve as a breeding ground for many species of migratory birds, which you can see in the tree canopies as you traverse the trails connecting the various exhibits. The zoo's snack bar offers only basic food, so be prepeared with additional fare if you plan to picnic here. Make your Myrtle Beach itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

  • This was such a sad experience! The animals look sick and they are in terribly small cages. The staff was rude and arrogant. I hope someone does something to help these animals!!!  more »
