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!

"Immense Zoo with Great Exhibits"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

Pros: Many expansive exhibits housing hundreds of different species of animals. Highlights for us included the south American aviary in which it is so wide and tall, the outdoor netted area really feels like you could be in a South American forest! Especially with the birds singing. Also cool were the giant river otters who were extremely vocal and all the different antelope species they had. Misting stations throughout the zoo help to keep you cool on hot days. Cons: Not really a complaint, but the zoo is sooooo big. It took us 4 hours and 15 minutes to walk the whole thing. Bike trolley things are available for rent, but are quite costly. Tip: Plan to spend at least half the day here. Bring comfortable walking shoes and lots of water. Take the camera.

I went with my family a couple weeks ago I had a really nice time the animals were amazing. Everything was very neat and organized the bathrooms were very clean and organized. I really enjoyed the food they had a variety of food to chose from. The staff there was really nice when you asked them a question they clearly gave directions of what you had to do. I also really enjoyed that throughout the Zoo they had many activities going on like you could feed the turtles or the giraffes. Something else that I really enjoyed is that they had museums with really interesting things that you can see and since I went during the summer it was really hot so you can also enjoy going inside to cool off.

I didn't know what to expect, but it was well done. Lots of walking, so wear comfy shoes and bring a hat and sunscreen. The lush tropical vegetation, and music playing throughout, little places to cool off and refreshments including beer. You can rent covered pedal bikes for the family to ride on. There are all the usual suspects, gorillas, monkeys, lions, tigers, lemurs. You can feed the Giraffes. It was a lot of fun! The grounds are kept beautifully. Its a fun place for the family or a nice day out!

Miami Zoo is a great place to visit with the little ones. Try to go in the cooler months, since most activities are outdoor and very hot. There is a splash pad for the kids also so bring the bathing suits. The Everglades exhibition just opened so its a must see. Recommend the bikes. Get to see a lot in a short time.

The Miami zoo is a nice experience to all the people (young and adults) with a very good number of animals to visit and see. To save some time and money, try to find Grupon discounts, it will save you money and time to access the park.
