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.

Monkey boats are awesome!

Naples Zoo is a treasure that grandchildren will love about visiting Naples. Feeding giraffes was lots of fun. Lion is the best!

Visited with 5 yr old Great Nephew , he seemed to enjoy it and that is what counts. I lived in Fort Wayne IN and found they have a wonderful children's zoo. I guess with Naples Zoo I was surprised they did not have more in door attractions , this may be because the Conservancy is right next door.

Great little "old world" zoo with lush tropical landscaping enclosing the lot. The enclosures were better than I thought they might be - very clean and maintained. The reptile room needs some work and money for upgrades, but everything was was fine. The boat tour to see monkey islands was different and fun. It is good to see a smaller... More

there are a lot of animals in our zoo. You can make a whole day of it, casually walking around to see the animals or watch the shows. Its a good time for the whole family to enjoy.

My family visited the zoo in February 2016. This was my second visit and my grandchildren's first visit. We began with the monkey island boat ride which they thoroughly enjoyed. A few monkeys were very active and swinging on the vines. We also feed the giraffes and my 10 year old grandson thought that was very cool. My daughter and... More

Great way to spend the day. Small as far as zoos go, but the kids will enjoy. Discount coupons available in local flyers. Nice landscaping. Easily accessed from central Naples.

I had heard the Zoo was wonderful. I found it very basic with few animals. I also thought the grounds were unkept. I think there are so many free & natural things to see in the area. I would save my money as I also feel the admission fee is way much. I also think it would be especially disappointing... More

My husband and I go to this zoo quite often. It's a much smaller zoo than the big cities have but what do you expect in Collier County FL. Beautiful animals and they all seem well cared for! The feeding and riding of the giraffes is a nice touch for all (especially the younger children)! The monkey water ride exhibit... More

We have 4 sons between the ages of 1 and 10. Go at least once a month and still love it. Smaller zoo with a dedicated staff, unique interactive shows. Camel rides during the winter months and you can feed the girafffes all year long. The monkey boat tour is really cool.
