This is a small place nicely laid out, with nice grounds. I traveled alone and found it pleasant, but not too much to look at or do if you're an adult alone, it only took me an... read more

We went to Miami pick up family from the airport before an evening flight and decided to make a day of it. The jungle island folks were wonderful. We inquired about a VIP tour and luckily Ryan was available and came in on his day off! He was so gracious and made sure that everything was handled to his standards-... More

Jungle Island was very disappointing. It was very expensive (48$/person) and the animals were in very small cages. The shows are suitable for young children but not for adults. The only interesting are the kangaroos but as we went there they did not look very healthy.

This was one of the funnest and neat things I did all of my 10 day vacation. They have a Lemur nursery and you can pet, hold and play with 1 to 2 year old lemurs if you pay extra for the experience. There were 4 of them, 2 boys and 2 girls and they were quite adorable and fun.... More

I was so excited to visit this place. I am so disappointed at the size of the cages for the animals. It needs a major renovation for the benefit of the animals

Absolutely loved this place. I am 22 years old and this was the highlight of my vacation. Admission was a little pricey, but worth it! For an extra $30, you can have a one-on-one experience with a family of sloths which was super cool. Spent over 4 hours at the park, and still could have spent longer if they weren't... More

If you are looking for an attraction where you can leisurely stroll the park and take your time at the different exhibits, this is the place to go. They have a few animal shows but have many interactive animal encounters. Got a chance to pet a baby kangaroo! This place is good for younger kids and anyone looking to have... More

This is one of the nicest parks I've ever visited.There are birds everywhere, most are not caged. The vegetation creates a realistic jungle atmosphere. My favorite animals were the lemurs which were one of many I got to interact with on a 90 min. Private Tour. My guide,Ryan was incredibly knowledgeable and passionate.All the employees very friendly and helpful. The... More

This is a small place nicely laid out, with nice grounds. I traveled alone and found it pleasant, but not too much to look at or do if you're an adult alone, it only took me an hour and a half to look round. However, I had pre-booked the sloth encounter whioch was worth it, going into the enclosure and... More

Unless you get a free ticket, don't go. Overpriced and not many animals. More birds than anything. High priced parking too.

We were so happy to come here. You literally feel like you are in the jungle. We saw such beautiful wild animals like the white lion, a liger, canadian lynx, and birds. We paid extra to do the lemur experience and it was amazing. The lemurs are so active and playful, your kids will love it.

Thank Julie P
