Compared to Zoological Wildlife Foundation (interactive animal experience) and Theater of the Sea (swimming with sea animals), Jungle Island ranked as mediocre. We have a 7 & 10 year old and while the bird show was fantastic, the rest of it felt like a rip off for the money. The animals are all in tiny cages and every turn has... More

Jungle Island is a great place for adults and kids. It has been a tradition for 79 years and counting. On 1936, the park opened for the first time to the public and in 1939 they introduced the first bird show. In 2003 they opened their first Liger exhibit and in 2011 a brand new leopard exhibit, housing a melanistic... More

My husband and I had a great time! The bird exhibits were the best. We really enjoyed petting the kangaroos, something we have never did before!

We spent the morning at Jungle Island, on one of their VIP tours. It's a once in a lifetime experience, completely worth the expense. Ryan Jacobs, our guide, was incredibly gracious, knowledgable and fun. He was great with my 6 year old twins, who were spellbound the entire time. When we arrived, Ryan looked me in the eyes and asked,... More

The VIP tour was truly an awesome experience where we got to go behind the scene of most of the attractions. Ross did an incredible job guiding my partner and I through the Park! We started the tour with Lemurs that were very playful! We then were able to feed and interact with Kangaroos and even fed a little Joey!... More

Had a business dinner here after hours. This mean we only go to experience animals that were brought to us and presented while we mingled for a pre-dinner cocktail hour. We had the chance to see and pose for photos with baby kangaroo, Blue and Gold macaw, lemurs, crocodile, cockatiel, monkey. The staff were extremely friendly and informative and knew... More

A very pleasant day! Plenty of animals to see. Not too busy. Decent shows. Good location if you are travelling between Miami beach and Miami city itself.

We have visited jungle island several times, but nothing was better than our last visit. We had a VIP tour with Ryan, and it was outstanding! Ryan was a wealth of knowledge! The hands on and behind the scenes made the day top notch! Spend the extra to get a photographer- we got almost 300 precious moments captured! All the... More

This site is just a few minutes from downtown Miami. Parking is $10, entrance fees are fairly high. It is not that big of a site, but they do offer some unique things; you can pay extra for an encounter with Lemurs, kangaroos and others. They have a good bird show, tons of parrots and other birds scattered around the... More

This place was really good. The moment you walk in you get the chance to take a picture with parrots, a snake and an alligator. There are quite a few shows scheduled at good times with plenty of seating. You can bottle feed animals and/or pet them. My husband and I did opt for the Lemur experience which was quite... More
