Lowcountry Zoo

Spend time Connecting with WildlifeFamily at the zoo.

Visitors to Brookgreen Gardens can access the Lowcountry Zoo right on-site at 1931 Brookgreen Garden Drive in Murrells Inlet. The Lowcountry Zoo is open to the public daily from 9:30 am until 5:00 pm and is a terrific place to enjoy connecting with nature surrounded by amazing scenery. The Lowcountry Zoo is considered a vital element of Brookgreen Gardens’ mission and is fully accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums in South Carolina. When you explore animal habitats here, you’ll be encountering a variety of creatures that were either bred in captivity or have sustained injuries in the wild that don’t allow for reintegration. In this way, the Lowcountry Zoo functions as an educational center and a rehabilitation site where animals find second chances at life.

During this gathering, a staff member showcases a 30-minute program at the Campbell Center Program Shed, where you’ll get up close to animals native to the Southeast that work as ambassadors for their species. Afterward, head to Mother Nature’s Café, which is open from 11:00 am until 1:00 pm daily, and walk through the zoo alongside an on-site interpreter who can provide insight into animal behavior, feeding patterns, and more.
