Florida’s oldest zoological garden, Zoo Miami is home to over 2,000 animals across more than 100 exhibits. An air-conditioned monorail takes a loop around the zoo and is a comfortable and convenient way to get around the site, providing an aerial view of some exhibits. There are four main areas of the zoo: Asia, Africa, Amazon and beyond, and Australia. Those who want to experience animals up close can brush an Indian rhinoceros or feed a giraffe for an additional fee. For more information about the zoo and its animals, take a narrated tram ride or guided tour. For Zoo Miami and beyond, use our Miami family vacation planner to get the most from your Miami vacation.

  • Very few animals to see... the site looks sloppy because what are remodeling. them sites to buy something of eat are terrible and expensive... I seems good only for distract is walking because really think that spend much money and not earned the penalty... Although is a zoo should have more people working and more animals for see or at least more things to distract is with children.

  • And not just for kids. There are lots of interesting activities. Once I even mounted a camel. I'd say it's one of the best zoos I've visited 
  • A very good zoo with manicured. It fell, however, that in many stay exactly 1 animal sat. Most animals are also happy in spacious lodgings and other such as the koala in a box just a little more spacious than a toilet booth what best is pathetic. Fortunately, this was not so for many of the animals present and hope they do some to go.

  • Love Zoo Miami! There is so much to experience from each part of the zoo. It is pretty easy to walk through. There are cool learning stations everywhere. All of the species I saw were out and living their zoo lives. The misting stations are a blessing on hot south Florida days. There were keepers out and answering questions. That's always a big plus for me. The 2 viewing areas for the crocodile gives two different prospectives. The zoo is a great place to visit and learn about wildlife when international travel and safaris are too expensive for families and individuals.
  • As far as zoos go...excellent. Good parking on site Multiple ticket booths Very big zoo especially in the sunlight Suggest monorail day pass to help with walking. It has ac Also guided tram tour if you want Otherwise rent a family saves your energy Many water spray cooling stations Conveniently located multiple water fountains and soda vending machines. ..ccard ready Food is adequate Water park at the oasis Many bench/umbrella sites for sitting A lot of exhibits In other words. .most things catered for. Highly recommended! !!
  • Really liked the zoo here. We rode the safari tram as soon as we got there which was really nice. It made it easy to see a lot of animals while being in the shade of the tram and also get extra info from the driver. We than went and rented some bicycles which again made it really nice and easy to see the animals on a hot summer day. Ended the day feeding the giraffes which was just amazing. Highly recommend this zoo, I want to go back.
  • I love this zoo! It is huge! It has many different animals. Feeding the giraffes here was the highlight of my trip to Miami. Also, the chimps were awesome to watch! The zookeepers are attentive and answer questions that you may have. They also give a lot of interesting information about animal behaviors that you may not know. Definitely plan on being there for 3+ hours if you plan to see the whole thing, walking. Overall, a great experience.
  • This zoo is absolutely amazing! it is the biggest zoo i have ever been to. it is huge. i would recommend that you rent a bike when you get here. if you dont make sure you are ready to walk! it was very hot! drink and food were okay priced. had an amazing time other than the heat and amount of walking.
