Jungle Island, Miami

3.1
#4 of 8 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.

  • We came today (November 22) with our four year old to use the Zipline, rock climbing wall, play ground, etc. First of all, almost everything is closed either for renovation or because it is damaged. W...  more »

  • Well worth the price of admission. The experience with the sloths was educational and hands-on meeting with the sloths was unforgettable. The sloths names were Flash and Rico. The trainer was very personal and made the whole experience worth the price. I would easily pay to go back again. The whole zoo was a nice atmosphere, the wild animals are free and majority of the animals weren't caged (which was a nice change than a traditional zoo). The experience with the lemurs looks really fun and would love to experience that too. I would love to go back. Thanks to the whole crew at Jungle Island for a great time!
  • This place is way way way overpriced, and on top of that you gotta pay parking there’s barely anything to do or see and construction everywhere, it is not well maintained at all Miami Zoo is so much better and cleaner with way more to see and do and even half the price and you can even feed the giraffe for a couple of bucks, and parking is free. Please don’t waste your money on this place. Those writing good reviews probably work there cause trust me all it is, is a few parrots and monkeys for a ridiculous price.
  • Beautiful park! Unfortunately it's under construction right now so not all of the amenities are available to see. But they are making some great improvements to the park. Will definitely be a place to visit again after the overhaul.
  • very nice place! the kids loved it! some parrots just fly around and arent caged letting you walk up pretty close to get some gorgeous shots from them! they also have a small petting zoo area with a couple of goats that the kids can go into the pen and brush! staff is friendly and very kind. overall was a very nice family experience
  • Had a great time! The animals were well kept, clean, and had enrichment and healthy foods. The lemur and sloth interactions were well worth the cost and the highlight of our vacation! Staff was great!
