An "up close" Zoo with a tree top trek. Feed the giraffes at eye height!

A very interesting Zoo that present animals in a more natural habit. Great for adults or kids. Has a tree top trek and you can see the animals in a closer view.

A great place to take kids, grandchildren, or just visit. Nice trails that wind through different sections of world and the animals found there. Always very clean and reasonably priced for a great day. A super place to bring visitors.

A fantastic zoo with great, spacious living areas for the animals. You follow several elevated wooden paths through different environments (e.g. wild Florida, Africa, Australia etc.). There are some magnificent animals here and you often have the opportunity to feed them using coin op food dispensers. Highly recommended.

I love all the additions the Brevard Zoo keeps making. From the zipline "roller-coaster", to having Cheetahs, they've really come a long way.

Went with my 9 yr old grandson, and we had a blast ! It is super tropical and mostly shady, although smaller than big city zoos, it makes up for in the quality of the animals and the cleanliness of the entire park. It is truly a beautiful place, informative at every turn, and a day well spent, we both... More

I have been to the zoo twice and I always enjoy going. The heat can take a toll since it's outside and the Florida sun has no mercy :-). 1. My favorite thing at the zoo is feeding the giraffe. It's $2 to feed them and it goes by so very quickly but I always enjoy it. Try to visit... More

We have an annual membership and take all our guests here. We have adopted several animals and have given the adoptions as gifts. Several youth groups in Germany have become loving animal parents this way. Thanks to the staff for taking such loving care. And thanks to all animals to bring out the very best in us.
