The place is not huge, but we still spent 4 hours there. We took our 21 yr old granddaughter who was visiting. We didn't do the Rainforest Experience, but we had a great time! The presentations were not long, but were very informative. King, the...More
We pad a lot of extra money to go inside the jungle area and feed the monkeys. It was way too expensive we thought, but I wouldn't have gone if we didn't do this as the rest of the place was just okay, not a...More
I had not been to Monkey Jungle in 14 years and a lot has changed for the better. My husband and I purchased the Amazon Rainforest Experience. I thought $90 each was a little pricey. You meet up with your “guides” and enter an open...More
This is the best animal encounter I’ve ever experienced. The staff are all very kind and the landscape is beautiful ! I recommend doing the monkey tour! You get to get up close and personal with all the monkeys !
Having paid $315 for general admission and a lemur experience, we went into the park with high expectations.
The first thing you encounter is parrots with staff waiting to help you have one on your arm and have a photo taken. They do not want...More
My daughter suggested visiting Monkey Jungle while we were in Miami....I was a little hesitant but so glad that we did go! It was so amazing to interact with the monkeys in their own environment and especially to see how intelligent they are. The staff...More

There is one section of the park where (for an additional fee) you can actually go into the monkey area with a guide (they have food), have food in your hand, and the monkeys will climb down your arm, sit on your shoulder and eat the food. You cannot actually pet them (they ARE wild after all), but they will interact with you for some time.
The rest of the park has little baskets on chains that drop down from the top of the cage (remember YOU are in a 'cage" while the monkeys roam free) and if you put food in the basket, the monkeys will pull up the chain and get the food out. Other habitats have pipes that you can drop food into and have it reach the monkeys.
