Description

from Zoo Miami
Zoo Miami is the ideal place for an individual, a couple, or an entire family to spend a day. As a matter of fact, visitors can travel the world in one day! They will visit Africa, Asia, the Amazon, and Australia. Zoo Miami consists of 340 developed acres with more than 3,000 animals and over 1,200 plants and trees which are planted in such a way as to mimic the animals’ natural habitats.

Guests will be able to feed giraffes, parrots, and a rhino; ride a camel; have animal encounters; meet the keepers during scheduled Meet the Zookeeper talks throughout the day; and much more. They will enjoy jaguars, lions, tigers, orangutans, elephants, the Wings of Asia Aviary (the largest Asian-themed aviary in the western hemisphere with hundreds of free-flying birds), gorillas, chimps, koalas, kangaroos, frogs, snakes, meerkats, and more animals than we could ever list.

At Amazon and Beyond, experience a rainforest, jaguars, anacondas, bats, venomous snakes (behind glass exhibits, of course), rare frogs, harpy eagles, and a 48,000-gallon aquarium. And our Playworld Playground is a great place for kids to burn off some of that excess energy. Half jungle, half water park, they can stay dry or wet. Zoo Miami has food and drink concession stands throughout and a beautiful gift shop where you can buy that special memento that will bring back wonderful memories of Zoo Miami!

We absolutely love this zoo. Great place to spend the day walking, enjoying the water park, riding the rental bikes and viewing the animals. The new Everglades exhibit is amazing; a must see. We recently went on a night walk (limited space and only one day of the month) and had a great experience. Our guides were informative. Can’t say enough about it! Go visit.

We had a few hours before we needed to head to the airport and decided to give the zoo a try. There was so much to see that we didn't deviate off of the main path, as we were on foot. It seems like the trend was to rent family sized bike carts and we soon realized why as we found out the main path was over 3 miles! It really didn't feel like it, as there were so many cook animals to see. We only got to see one show which was the 4:30 animal exhibit, which was a lot of fun featuring a serval, two parrots, etc. Most of the food/drink carts along the way were closed, perhaps due to storm damage. The park has done a wonderful job of cleaning up, as we couldn't even tell there had been a devastating hurricane. If in the area again, we wouldn't hesitate to come back...As long as we have time to see the entire park!

Really enjoyed our trip to the Miami zoo. This is a very big zoo and they offer a train bikes and a monorail to get around we walked and it was fine . The animals are well taken care of and the enclosures are huge. I went to see how our elephants from Norfolk Virginia were doing and they were happy and healthy in a huge enclosure with lots to do. I enjoyed seeing our elephants so well taken care of they were fixtures in our zoo for over 20 years but I know they are much happier in the Miami zoo!!!!
