Walking in we were greeted by employees and huge beautiful birds, we took our pictures with the birds, a ball python and a baby alligator. The day starts off wonderful at Jungle Island....and then we get to the actual zoo part. The enclosures they have these animals in is just pitiful...they had a spotted leopard and a black panther together... More

The place is more like a zoo with some animal shows. Hence seems little costly for the price charged. The shows are not as good as the ones in disney or busch gardens. The park has a petting barn which kids will like but they charge fee for feeding the animals.

This summer we booked 3 groups from Brazil that were vacationing in miami. The vip tour is by far the best way to fully enjoy the Jungle Island experience. I have no doubt they will be back next year.

I went to see the Ligers. I saw them so that made my trip worthwhile. But for others I think it's probably a bit expensive as it's pretty small and the shows are just average. Also wasn't a big fan of how small some of the exhibits were.

Nice exhibits but must say charging $35 adult $26 children. Temp in 90s in shade and charging $3 for water. Free water fountain be nice. Animals treated better they got free water. Little stuffed Lemur was $70 in their gift shop (only place with AC). I had 20%off coupon and still feel paid too much for family of four.

This is a sneaky surprise! This time around I officiated a wedding at Jungle Island and what a nice surprise! Brand new hard wood floors, wonderful views in either direction. Or get married at the waterfall- maybe too loud so take pictures there instead. Ample room for 300+ guests,beautiful covered terrace- with lush greenery. Merci the coordinator and the staff... More

I love parrots and this place does not disappoint. Loved being able to feed them and touch those that wished to be touched. The open exhibit with the monkeys, parrots, iguanas, etc., was entertaining, but the area could maybe be a bit larger. The place is really steamy in July though, prepare to sweat!
