Jungle Island, Miami

3.1
#3 of 6 in Zoos & Aquariums in Miami
Interact with tropical birds, see a tiger show, or visit the Everglades Habitat to further explore Florida's ecosystems at Jungle Island. Such famous guests as Winston Churchill and President Jimmy Carter have visited this zoo, which originally opened in 1936 as Parrot Jungle. In addition to animal shows and exhibitions, the park also provides visitors with opportunities for live animal encounters at its petting zoo. A few of the zoo's most popular attractions are its Parrot Bowl, which hosts the Winged Wonders bird show, and a 408 kg (400 lb) liger (combination lion and tiger). Jungle Island is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Miami Edition.

  • This will be my last awful zoo/sanctuary experience. The animals did not look well looked after and most looked depressed. Please research into a place before visiting as this place just seemed to wan...  more »
  • I think that at least they can update their pages on the internet, since until one arrives in the parking lot is given account that the Park may be closed. You must walk to the Administration so that a lady explains that they closed the Park after the last storm.

  • We went there couple times, most of animals are in cells with a fine mesh, so it’s hardly to take a photo of them and see them clearly. Parrots at the entrance are always photogenic 🤳🏼
  • Animals are not ours to use nor abuse. We are mammals. They are mammals. They birds who were dinosaurs. We all are fish walking and talking. No animal should a slave of another nor a circus act. There are much better things to admire for beauty in nature wild and free not caged. Like the orangutan here far her indonesian home. A travesty of a business.
  • Great staff Kids loves this place. God bless you all in Jesus name.
  • I bought the year pass and only ended up going once. It was cool to pet the kangaroos but it became obvious the more I walked around how small the cages were for large cats and primates, like depressingly small. Like the other comments where people call them "prisons" really arent exaggerating. The show with the birds was fun, but again the unhappiness of the animals really bothered me.
  • Go for the animals , they need the support and money from us . However go on a full stomach , those restaurants and kiosks are independently run, and contribute nothing to the animals . I’m spending my money on good causes only
