Jungle Island is an incredible oasis in the heart of Miami with an extraordinary collection of lions, tigers, lemurs, orangutans, parrots, etc. etc. Well worth the trip.

Unlike the zoo, Jungle Island has a lot more covered space, epecially in the hot Florida sun have shade throughout your visit. It is very easy to navigate your way around the grounds. Very kid friendly, they can hold huge snakes, parrots, may other animals and they have two great petting zoo's. I recommend it for adults and children visiting... More

The visit in Miami to Jungle Island was planned well in advance and we were looking forward to visit during our trip to Naples, Florida. It was about 1 and 1/2 hour drive from Naples, my advise however is to take Hwy41 versus Interstate 75 due to the fact that 75 is partly Toll and wiith the changes and construction... More

I was unsure at first as this is not your normal large sized zoo and it wasn't cheap. For 2 adults and an 8 yr old it was slightly over $100. After spending part of the day there, it was well worth the money. You are able to get much closer to the animals than you ever would at the... More

Jungle Island is a lot of fun for people of all ages. If you are traveling in Miami, this attraction is included in the Miami-Go pass. It's worth looking into. There are zoos everywhere, but this is the first one I've seen that allows you to feed and pet kangaroos. We also fed various parrots and other large birds with... More

I was in Miami in July/2012 and, after visiting MANY attractions for children, Jungle Island (also known as "Parrot Jungle") was my sons' (Ages 6 and 8) favorite place. This year we went back to Miami and the two places they wanted to visit again were "Jungle Island" and "Butterfly Farm". We spent more than three hours there again and,... More

I've been to many zoos in many different places, but this one is my favorite. You get closer to the animals and get to interact more with them than any other place I've been. It's small, so you can easily see everything in 1/2 a day, and the setting by the water in the middle of Miami makes it really... More

A lovely day in Miami. A bit out of the way, but well worth it if you have children. The lion and tigers are amazing (especially at feeding time) and the variety of jungle birds and monkeys is staggering. The shows are worth stopping into, especially the bird show. An amazing array of species.

I love Jungle Island! This place is great for kids and for family! It's big but not as big as the Zoo but they are some nice spots in this place that definitely makes it looks like its Miami FL! The shows are funny and interesting! The food price is reasonable and not that overpriced!
