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 Naples Zoo is not a large zoo but we were impressed by the educational presentations they provide on the exhibits they have. We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The boat trip to view the primates exhibit and the presentation at the zoo's main educational area were both worth our time. The zoo is worth a... More

We visited the Naples zoo in March. When we were there the weather was amazing but I can imagine it can be very hot in the summer. Plenty of shade trees tho. The grounds are amazing. There are many tropical trees many that I had never seen before. There is a boat ride that takes you around to islands with... More

I came here with my 7-year-old son who was disappointed by how small the zoo is. I warned him in advance in order to keep his expectations low as I've been to this zoo before years ago. To be fair, we have visited the Bronx Zoo numerous times, which takes at least two days to see everything in it. And... More

We really enjoy the Naples Zoo. The shows are so well done, fun and informative. I really like the labels on trees, bushes and flowers so I know what they are. The boat ride through the monkey area is always fun and well narrated. All the animals and birds look very well taken care of. We also appreciate all the... More

Great little zoo in Naples. It's not your big city zoo, but that makes it better on some level. Nice selection of endangered animals that you can see up close and personal. Highlights were the Malayan Tigers and the primates. Tigers were awesome when they stretched out on the fence. Overall a nice little break from the beach. A bit... More

This was a little disappointing. The zoo is small and has limited animals. The free shows are ok, but for he cost of the admission I expected more. The gift shop was very over priced as well. Hard to spend more than a few hours here.

This is a great zoo for families with small children. Nearly all of the exhibits are located on one main circular trail that can be traversed in approximately 1.5-2 hours. It does get hot during the day, but there is ample shade and cold drinks located at multiple spots. Our favorite exhibits included the tigers and jaguars. And a special... More
