A commercial zoo of primates and birds, some of the animals were rescued from circuses, but its not the current concept of watching animals in as close to possible of their natural habitats. Guides are OK, but not very intellectual. Animals perform stunts for humans (catch bottles of iced tea, make gestures etc. I am not totally opposed to zoos... More

Me and my boyfriend went here while on vacation and decided to splurge a little bit to feed the monkeys.. TOTALLY WORTH IT! Your guide keeps your hands filled with food for the entire 45 minutes that you are in the rainforest and there are monkeys everywhere climbing on you! Once in a life time experience! People of every age... More

We spent a nice day at Monkey Jungle, where you can observe the animals in their own habitat. We enjoyed watching the monkeys swim in their pool and feeding the monkeys raisins. There were many types of monkeys and apes to see. Monkey Jungle is also home to King the Gorilla, who was rescued years ago from a circus. The... More

The kids loved it and I found it interesting also. Clean and tidy and the animals seemed happy and well looked after. Hot in the summer

Do the rain forest tour. Donate to the sanctuary. This is so incredible! I wish I could spend all day every day with these sweet animals! We will be back for sure!

In the past 15 years, we did most of the great Zoos in North America. I have rarely seen a place with monkeys like this ... Actually, you are like in cage and the monkeys are free. You can feed some of them but most important, you will learn on monkeys through 4 shows that run mostly all day long.... More

Terrible experience!! This place does not deserve to charge $30 for entrance, complete rip-off! It's a very small place, not well-kept, show and presenter quality is especially poor. I would not recommend this place to anyone, there are much better places in South Florida for animal lovers, like Lion Country Safari, which offer much much more for lower prices.

I've been here a couple times, and each visit was fun, but nothing new. It is a little costly for the amount of attractions they have. For myself, my boyfriend, and our son + 4 packets of "monkey food" (at a cost of .75 cents each) was around $80.00. Honestly, you can buy a 6 packet of raisins (which is... More
