We have been to quite a few zoos and wildlife centers and comparatively, Jungle Island offers a "different" and "interesting" experience. Here are the positives: 1) Exotic animals such as White Lion, White Tigers and Liger etc. can be seen! 2) Beautiful and colorful birds all over the park 3) They have 3-4 shows running on a particular day and...

Very tropical zoo, it is small for all the exhibits. Many big cats, Kangaroos, snakes; all in small cages. Many birds and shows. Food stands, bathroom facilities, and Park overall was clean. And the place was busy. I paid $34. for the ticket, it lasts for the entire year. I have seen groupon ticket for $11.

Jungle Island is a beautiful zoo/sanctuary that's very well laid out with beautiful animals like white tigers, the rare liger, some snakes and reptiles, and all arts of beautiful birds that you can hand feel. It's pricey but worth it.

Almost nothing is covered in the ticket price. You want a picture with the parrots? Extra charge. You want to see the kangaroos? Extra charge. And a lot of the animals looked like they weren't well cared for. Several of the big cats in particular had large holes in their fur, and not just one type of cat or one... More

Purchased ticket through groupon for only $11. The park itself is very small compared to any other zoo. We saw all shows and visited all animals in 3 1/2 hours (this was with large crowds due to the groupon). The animals are enclosed in very small areas which was disappointing. Happy I did not pay full price ($34). Well worth... More

OK so I'm a "senior" but we really enjoyed Jungle Island, far better than Zoo Miami a week before. Well laid out, an easy 'walk' for the older visitors and and food with the flamingoes as the decent cafe overlooks "their" lake.

We could not have been more pleased with our VIP tour of Jungle Island. Ryan was amazing! Very passionate about the park and he made sure that we really got to enjoy our time with these wonderful animals.

I was very happy with my recent visit to Jungle Island. My last visit was when I was very young and it was called Parrot Jungle, located in West Miami. I did not know what to expect and was very pleasantly surprised. I remembered a lot of animal acts, mostly parrots and other birds performing tricks, riding a bike, dressed... More

Our family visited Jungle Island and booked a VIP Go Wild Tour. It exceeded all our expectations! It's hard to say what was the best part. Adults and kids loved each and every encounter, kangaroos, tortoises, capuchin monkey. Nothing can possibly top the time we spent with lemurs. If you ever get a chance to visit this place, take it.... More

I was a little suspect about the price versus value but Jungle Island exceeded all of my expectations. My group paid the extra money and did the 90 minute private tour. Ryan was AMAZING! If you are going to the park, pay the extra money and get the tour. You will not be disappointed! My entire group will be back.
