New for 2014: Discover the wonders of South America featuring a Giant anteater, Patagonian cavies, Cotton-top tamarins, and more. Get wildly close to the cheetahs at viewing windows. Hand-feed the herd of giraffe plus enjoy your favorite animals like lions, tigers, and bears. Naples Zoo is one of only four zoos in the nation to feature 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.

This is a good way for a family to spend 3 or 4 hours. This zoo is based around a fantastic botanical garden which has loads of unique plants which set off the animal exhibits really well. There is plenty of interactive things to do including feeding the fish, turtles and giraffes all of which come at a cost albeit... More

The family friendly day can be complete in under 2 hrs. The giraffe feeding will make even the grumpy smile and feel like a child all over again. Very well kept, clean, organized and people friendly staff will greet you with a smile. New huge parking lot just off Airport-Pulling. As a grown adult, I often return, just to see... More

Having read about the Naples Zoo in several publications I decided to take my wife and grandson there. In short it’s not really a Zoo as we come to expect. I have been to many Zoos’ in Europe, San Diego, New York, Being etc. This is really more a Garden than a zoo. It has a few animals and that’s... More

A nice Nature park. Exhibits seem well laid out, and there are a lot of beautiful plants along the pathways. Staff appeared friendly and helpful. Zoo was smaller and not overcrowded which s nice. Not an all day activity like some Zoo's.

Our family enjoyed the Naples zoo very much. It was small, but had many endangered animals that we had not seen before. The apes were very active and loud! The kids loved the boat ride around lake Victoria.

It was a very pleasant, manageable zoo for a two or three hour trip. Loved the show with the sloth; who knew they were so cute! It was under construction when we were there; I think it will be even better when that is finished.

would have been more enjoyable if it wasn't raining during our visit but the animals we saw were entertaining. We especially liked seeing the tigers, cheetah and primates

Well established. A boat ride takes you by wee islands populated by primates and lemurs. Good representation of animals from Africa, Asia, and South and north america. Daily educational shows featuring unique reptiles and mammals and birds.

I just love the Naples Zoo & Caribbean Gardens. It is small, but very clean and all the animals are well-kept. My favorites are the giraffes (which you can feed for $5) and the demonstrations which are given at different areas throughout the day. Collier County residents can visit for FREE on the first Saturday of every month and I... More
