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.

My 2 year old loved it. Lots of cool animals and the giraffe feeding (although so overpriced..$5 for three lettuce leaves) was great. Wish there was more options for food.

To celebrate my Mom's 83rd birthday, my daughter Sara, Mom, and I visited the Naples Zoo and Caribbean Gardens. Built on a former estate, the Zoo enveloped the historic tropical garden spaces. My daughter Sara, Urban Beautication Coordinator for the City of Winter Springs, and I, the Master Gardener Intern, were in awe of the beautiful flora and fauna. We... More

Zoo is small but the plants are really nice. Animals are nice. The enclosures are good size. Amazing show that is funny and entertaining and also educational. Fun boat cruise to see primates. Overall it is a nice zoo but not worth a whole day.

It is always nice to visit this zoo. It is not huge but you can spend half a day there. I would recommend to do the Primate Cruise as soon as you arrive, because it is always crowded in the afternoon. Another must do is feeding the giraffes

We spent several hours at the zoo and LOVED it! We watched an excellent small animal show which was entertaining and informative. Then we watched the alligators get fed which was also informative and a little scary. Then we took a pontoon boat ride around several islands that are home to various apes and monkeys. Again very informative and all... More

The first thing I will say is get there when it opens so you can see all the animals. Some animals come out at certain times. Anyways, this zoo was really nice. The workers were friendly, it was a clean park, and the animals were cool to see. At certain tines of the year, they have a camel you can... More

This is a fun place to visit and seems to get better all the time. They offer a show and talks by zoo employees at various places throughout the zoo to give more in depth explanations about the animals. A fun day! Best in early morning to keep cooler.
