Much more than a walk-thru zoo, this historic tropical garden and nationally accredited zoo features a full day of wildlife experiences to delight guests with the natural world to inspire the conservation of our planet's remaining wild areas and their wondrous inhabitants. Discover the wonders of South America featuring a Giant anteater, Cotton-top tamarins, and more. Get wildly close to the Malayan tigers at viewing windows. Hand-feed the herd of giraffe plus enjoy your favorite animals like lions, monkeys, and bears. Naples Zoo is one of only four zoos in the nation to feature the fierce YouTube-favorites: African honey badgers. Plus discover rarely seen species including Malagasy fosas and 2 of less than 20 striped hyenas in the nation. Ask those questions you've always wondered about at the Meet the Keeper Series. Be fascinated by rare creatures during premier wildlife shows. Cruise through islands of monkeys, lemurs, and apes. Watch our professional staff hand-feed American alligators while dispelling popular myths. Snap great photos and learn the facts behind the fiction at a venomous snake talk. It's wild fun from apes to zebras. Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens is a nonprofit organization cooperating in conservation programs both in and outside the wild for endangered species. The zoo is nationally accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, the organization that sets the highest standards for wildlife care, education, and conservation. The garden also holds accreditation by The Morton Register of Arboreta and is a member of the American Public Gardens Association.

Great zoo for kids and adults

Watch the alligators get fed, take boat cruise to watch monkeys free to roam on small islands, feed the giraffes, and more. What more can a little kid want to do?

This zoo is a must see for all who visit Naples. It surprises me how many locals have never been to this zoo! The assortment of animals is spectacular for a zoo this size...and it's expanding. Ample, close parking that is FREE!! Reasonable admission prices as well. The boats and monkeys are always a favorite for my kids. Don't miss... More

If you're looking for a more intimate experience with animals, this is your place. Sloth show is a hit. Monkey islands observed by boat ride are unique. Good for a half day light walk that is mostly shaded.

We are members of the Indianapolis Zoo and were given a discount for admission because of the membership. We liked the exhibits and the playground. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The children had a great time. It was hot and humid when we were there and it would have been nice to have misters around to help cool... More

Small but a good stop for an afternoon when it is too chilly for the beach. Don't miss the tiger feeding time and I would recommend the snake show too.

What a great place to take your family. Grandkids enjoyed all the animals. Park is very clean and staff is very friendly. Large enjoy to spend several hours of fun while small enough not to walk your legs off. Enjoy seeing the new additions added on regular basis to zoo.

So big deal - it's a great zoo because there isn't a lot of walking and there's a souvenir shop! The animals don't have room to be animals. It's disgusting. DON'T GO IF YOU CARE ABOUT ANIMALS.

I love this zoo. We go there every time we visit Naples. It has an "up close and personal" feel and it's not so big that you can't do it all in 2-3 hours. I loved feeding the giraffes. For $5 they give you 3 romaine lettuce leaves and walk right up to one of the giraffes to feed. They... More

We had a lovely afternoon at the zoo yesterday. I would suggest bringing a picnic as they stamp your hand and you can come and go through the day. unfortunately we didn't know this in advance. It was really lovely. It was quite and our daughter fed the Giraffes. We also had a camel ride. It was a very relaxing... More
