The zoo was a real surpreise. There's an easy trail to follow in order to see all the animals and there's also the schedule of each animal so you can see the treater interact with the animals and bring them closer so you can take pictures. Beautiful and enjoyable place to spend a afternoon. The Giraffe Feeding is awesome. I... More

You should definitely rent a bike because this place is huge. It's a really cool place to bring your family. I had a great time!

Had a perfect day at the zoo with cooler temperatures and all the animals were out and moving around. The walkways are nice and wide with plenty of room for people to get around. Lots of space at each enclosure for many people to look at the animals. The only downside was the food concessions, it seems to be rather... More

We have been to a lot of Zoo's, but this was the best. It's very well done and Beautifully Landscaped. We figured 2 or hours would be more than enough, but actually spent almost 5. This is a Must Do if you are in the Miami Area. And best of all we saved money by winning our tickets through Florida... More

My daughter wanted to go and I was not looking forward to it. But there was absolutely no crowd on a January Wednesday that was threatening rain. The animals were all out and we were very pleased with the displays. The Asian and Giant otters were our favorites and the caretaker for the Asian otters was very informative.

Our family membership is worth its weight in gold :-) Although renovations are still a work in progress, there's lots to see and do. It's easy to forget that you're visiting a zoo. The animals are well cared for, the employees are helpful and friendly and grounds are spotless.

Had a great time with our two young children, looking for animals and, especially at the water playground at the center of the park. That playground was the highlight for the kids and they can play on it for free with the price of admission. You can also rent bikes to ride around (it can be quite a long walk)... More

One of the best zoos I have been to, with a friendly staff and a huge property for all the species of animals. You have the choice of walking the property or renting a bicycle for 2,3 or 4 people that makes it easier when travelling with children.

We spent about 5 hours at the Zoo; we had to leave to catch a plane, but we could have spent another couple of hours there and enjoyed it. We were there when they opened, and we were glad to be there early, as it got crowded by noon. They had some great exhibits, including the harby eagle, feeding the... More

Zoo Miami was an unexpected delight. The aviary is amazing, so large you forget that you are enclosed. Spotlessly clean with extremely friendly, helpful personnel. The animal enclosures were large and allowed animals lots of exercise and interaction. I highly recommend this zoo. Keep in mind that it is large and the bicycle vehicles are a real plus for families... More
