We happen to go down to Miami for the day to visit the old Parrot Jungle now called Jungle Island during the Holidays. We happen to be pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness and lack of people. Perhaps it was the Holiday or cost, it's not cheap but was interesting and entertaining. For the most part, the animals all were in... More

We went on the Jungle Island VIP tour. If there is one thing you do in Miami (besides going to the beach), this should be it. On the VIP tour, you get to see everything you would normally see, but a few things you normally wouldn't, and you get to interact with the animals, which you wouldn't normally get to.... More

Decided to take the VIP tour iin Jungle Island and it was worth every minute. We got to go behind the scenes and had the opportunity to interact one on one with a monkey, kangaroos, 100+ years old tortoises and more. Our guide, Ryan, was extremely knowledgeable and insightful. One of the most interesting things I have done in Miami.... More

Jungle Island is my favorite part of my whole trip to Miami. Just the island is amazing, viewing areas to watch the wide variety of animals. There are tiger, 120 year old tortoises, kangaroos, rare birds, monkeys, and more! I absolutely loved it. To make it even better, we booked an exclusive VIP tour, lead by Ryan Jacobs. We got...

On Watson Island, a man-made island in Biscayne Bay, is a fascinating collection of birds, wild animals, and a petting zoo (access is via the MacArthur Causeway between Miami and Miami Beach). A liger is a mix of a lion and a tiger. Along with it are a number of white tigers. Be sure to see the animal show where... More

From someone who has been to numerous animal parks (ocean park - hong kong, kelly tarlton - new zealand, sea world - san diego and orlando) i would put this one up there with the best of them. It isn't as large but the staff and the interactions are what make it so great. I am a police officer so... More

My boyfriend and I went to Jungle Island on vacation over the summer. It was very cool you can pay and get to feed and let kangaroos which is really awesome. We went and watched a show and that was neat too. The enclosures could use a little work as some of them were very small and the animals seemed... More

This is a great attraction and a reasonable price. Filled in a few hours and saw some really unusual animals. The enclosures could be kept tidier and some of the animals looked sad. Witnessed staff banging their cleaning brushes on the tiger enclosure and roaring at them which seemed cruel.

We were staying in Fort Lauderdale over winter break and wanted to do something with kids when it was too cool to stay at the beach. Jungle Island was the perfect answer. You definitely get a lot for your money. Parrots everywhere and not only in cages flying around and some we're even taking and dancing - we all loved... More
