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.

In all fairness to the Naples zoo, I have been to the San Diego, Columbus, and Cincinnati zoos. The Naples Zoo is small but everyone is very knowledgeable. We were impressed by how the shows were trainers educating the public. We thoroughly enjoyed our time, and learned new facts about the tigers. If you are in the area you will... More

We go here frequently. We have 3 small children, so zoos are kind of our thing... Never disappointed in this well maintained zoo right across from the mall. An easy half day trip. Clear walking paths. Animals seem close (makes the kids happy). Lots of interesting vegetation. They did a nice job with the parking update.

Have been here a few times. I love how accessible the exhibits are here. A lot of zoos only give you one or two vantage points that aren't always the greatest for actually seeing the animals. Really loved how active their Tigers were both times we visited. Try to be there when they do the Tiger interaction. It's cool seeing... More

Great little zoo. Perfect,not to big. Easy walking with a lot of shade. Very clean. Snack area and gift shop. Wonderful animal exhibits. Doesn't have to be an all day event.

It's not the biggest zoo, but it is very nice and clean. The park staff were very knowledgeable of the animals and you can get really close to the animals.
