Hamlet’s arrival follows that of another addition to Zoo Atlanta’s African Savanna in May. Unlike the warthog who joins others at the zoo, 9-year-old southern white rhinoceros, Mumbles, was the first of his species to live at the capital city’s zoo.
Guests can see Mumbles and try their best to take a gander at Hamlet at the zoo safely knowing that COVID-19 protocols are in effect.
Among the procedures in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19 are advanced ticket sales, timed ticketing, a mostly one-way zoo experience, hand-sanitizing stations throughout the property and signs posted to encourage social distancing. Masks are required for guests ages 10 and up and some optional paid experiences, such as giraffe feeding and the zoo train, require masks for guests ages 2 and older.
