Owner description: 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.

Been to a bunch of zoos and this one lets you get pretty close to the animals which is nice. Really good giraffe pen and the lion pen was also close up.

This is a family oriented place to spend the day! So clean and mostly odor free! Nice bathrooms and snack bars! The tropical vegetation of naples area is what really sets this zoo apart! It's so beautiful! We heard many different languages spoke in this park! I was under the impression that naples area draws guest from around the world!

'Meet the keeper' shows all day are informative with details about their lives. Hokey performance in the amphitheater at the end of the day, but another chance to see animals without the bars.

This zoo is small but has some unique aspects, is well-maintained and is aesthetically pleasing. It is easy to find and has a lot of parking. Many of the animals are in the classic cages but are given a fair amount of space and don't seem overcrowded. There is a lot of natural foliage including an amazing banyan tree. One... More

Its our favorite place to go besides the beaches. It is a beautiful historic botanical garden transformed into a zoo. We were sad to see the little walkway gone in front of the building. To enjoy the zoo please take your time, see the shows, take the boat ride, feed the giraffes, ride the camel but most of all appreciate... More

An attractive medium size zoo--still a lot of walking but you don't wear out! The short cruise around a small lake to observe various primates on a series of islands provides a narrated break from walking. Be sure to catch the zookeeper reports at the feeding of the leopards and the anteater. The show in the outdoor theater is also... More
