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.

The grandkids LOVE this zoo. Feeding the giraffe's, taking a camel ride and the monkey boat ride - what more could the kids want. We go every year and they never tire of the animal shows and all of the events. Give yourself at least three hours to enjoy it all.

What a special place right smack in the middle of Naples. You wouldn't expect this oasis yet so many beautiful animals call this place home. Kids and adults will be amazed. Ride the boat and see monkey island. A true must see in Naples.

We visited the Naples Zoo while vacationing in Naples. It was a great experience. It is small and can be done in just a few hours. It allows for a few up close views of animals. Also listened to a few of the zookeeper's info session and they were great! Don't expect the likes of some of the larger US... More

Best is the boat ride around the island where they have the Apes/Monkeys. Always said they should make the entire park one lagre boat ride.

I so badly want to write a good review for this zoo but can only write an average one. This zoo has a lot of potential. Bought tickets online for a discount before we got there. The tigers were very active and the monkey boat tour was good, as well. We also saw zebras. Pretty much every other animal was... More

My husband and I decided to spend a few hours at the zoo today and we're glad we did! The staff was helpful and very knowledgable of the animals and the exhibits. The exhibits were well maintained and lush with beautiful trees and foliage. All of the animals were easily seen and the variety was just enough. Our favorite part... More

Surprisingly, there was a lot at this little zoo. There wasn't much sea life (go figure, in Florida) but we enjoyed the shows that the zoo keepers put on and feeding the giraffes.

Lions, tigers and bears. We took the boat ride around the primate islands to see the spider monkeys and gibbons etc. The boat captain/guide was very knowledgeable. We tried to follow the schedule provided so we could attend as many presentations by the zoo staff as possible. Two young men brought out very large venomous snakes and they gave a... More

The Naples Zoo was a surprising joy for a relaxing afternoon. Unlike many other zoos, here you can get up close to many of the animals and the park has lectures that are informative. It isn't a massive zoo but it is well kept, friendly, and fun. They have a terrific snackbar. I recommend on hot days to get there... More
