I have been to several zoos in the US and Zoo Miami is by far the best zoo I've been to! It is a very large zoo with lots of animals. The animals are all in very nice enclosures and looked well loved and taken care of. Lots of chances to interact with the animals. I fed the giraffes and... More

I went to the Zoo and had a very good time with my family. The rented a bike, which I highly recommend and saw pretty much everything. There are a lot of animals to see! What I didn't like so much was the several attractions you have to pay extra and the lack of shade in some spots throughout the... More

It is one of our fave place to go to visit withe animals and also get some exercise in our day. Staff is friendly and take pride... More

This was our third time visiting the zoo and it did not disappoint. We fed the giraffe's and our son did the Blue Hippo slide which was fun. We would definitely go again.

Lots of animals roaming around. Park youth rangers were informative and knew a lot about their animals. Loved that the zoo had bicycles for rent to travel around in. We were so happy we rented one. Saved time and kept us pretty dry during the downpours. Would definitely go back!

I have been visiting Zoo Miami since I was a baby and it never gets old. Truly one of the best and largest Zoos in the world. They have one of the largest varieties of mammals, birds, reptiles and other animals that I have ever seen at any attraction. The entrance to Zoo Miami goes down a long driveway surrounded... More
