Our family of four visited Zoo Miami last Thursday. First let me say that you shouldn't get your hopes up thinking that this is an incredible exhibit-oriented zoo because it is not. The exhibits here are more sparse and they look as though they need a good deal of maintenance and upkeep. The animals all looked as though they were well-cared for. But the habitats and just the general look of the zoo doesn't compare well with the many other zoos we have visited over the years. It looks run down and in need of a makeover!
There is a lot of ground to cover here, so be warned it is a lot of walking. We rented a 4 person safari cycle for our family and had so much fun with it. It gives you a bit of shade and a place to sit.
We had lunch at the Oasis and the food was OK and the prices were very reasonable considering what most other zoos charge. The cafe was clean. Speaking of money this was not an expensive day at all. The admission prices were very fair I thought.
There is also a zoo monorail that we did not ride. And for the younger kids there is a water play area that looked like a lot of fun.
This is not a zoo we would visit again but we did have a good time just being together here!
