Beautiful exhibits! Animals had a lot of ground and very natural habitats. docents and staff were knowledgable and friendly. There demonstration stage was new and beautifully designed. Enjoyed the show. Large variety of animals, including both afican and asian elephants. Great idea to offer surreys as a way for families to get around such a large zoo.

Its a real nice place, huge, (better get good shoes to walk) the animals are not behind "bars" like other zoo. The Exposition of Dinosaur is real nice trough out the visit. They did not respect the military discount policy they had on their web site. So i was disappointed about it. The monorail was out of order..and from what... More

I LOVE ZOO MIAMI. It's a tropical paradise and the animals have plenty of room to roam freely. I love watching them and don't feel sorry for them like I do in other zoos. There are plenty of activities for young children and a lot of informational lectures for adults. The monorail is wonderful on a hot day. The giraffe... More

This was our second visit to Zoo Miami. Once again we had a great time. Since our last time there are new exhibits. It was quite warm the day we arrived. Later in the afternoon it cooled and the animals were quite active and this gave us the best photo ops. There is a lot of construction going on, They... More

Zoo is beautifully landscaped, however, because of this, we saw no animals for almost the first hour of our visit.

We remembered how hard the walk was and it was no surprise to see they have introduced cycles for visitors to use....at a price! The tigers are still too far to walk on a hot day....except for the youngsters I suppose!

A great day out with our family. We took our almost 2 year old grandson to see the animals and it was such a fun day. We walked all over the zoo and it was just amazing. We had not been in a little over a year and it is a new adventure each time we go. We thoroughly enjoyed... More

Great attraction with no cages. Natural habitats, lions and tigers and bears, oh my! Even an aviary and a petting zoo.

Bring your walking shoes. This is an all day visit. It's big park but one of the few things Miami-Dade county has done well. I live here. I know. Kids love this place. If you come in summer, bring lot's of water and sunblock. If you come after march, come early. That is when the animals are most active.
