Chestatee Wildlife Preserve

There are less than 200 Siberian White Tigers left in the world — and 12 of them are in Dahlonega, Georgia! The Chestatee Wildlife Preserve sits on 20 acres of gently rolling farmland and is home to a wide variety of exotic animals including Tigers, Mountain Lions, Black Spotted Leopards, Albino Wallabies, Monkeys, Alligators and Cockatiels as well as Donkeys, Peacocks, Ostriches and a Camel named Sebastian.

There are places to sit and enjoy the animals, as well as picnic tables for a leisurely lunch and knowledgeable staff on hand to answer any questions. They also do customized group educational programs for schools and churches as well as child or adult daycare programs.
