Tickets must be purchased BEFORE your arrival! Space is limited. Tickets are non-refundable. Tickets may be exchanged for another night based on availability by calling 1-(888) 718-4253.

The trail through the zoo is approximately 1 mile. For those who may have difficulty walking we offer push behind adult strollers for free on a first-come first-serve basis.
The adult strollers are not meant to replace a wheelchair, they are simply to be assistance for those who may need help walking the distances necessary to fully experience Brookgreen Gardens. They will not fit into our handicapped accessable restrooms due to their size.
Guests who require a wheelchair or other mobility equipment should bring their own.
The following companies provide wheelchair and scooter rentals. Wheelchairs and mobility scooters are welcome in all Brookgreen Gardens venues
