Despite turning up on a day when the rain was pretty heavy, even for a Brit, we still managed to have a great time. In fact, the rain probably helped to keep the crowds away, meaning we could wander about and frequently be alone with...More

I actually visited for a function in the ballroom and it was really nice and spacious and working AC and very clean bathrooms. I was very impressed.

I had such an amazing time taking the VIP tour on the Island. We saw so many different exotic and wild animals and our guide really connected with them as well. I am an animal rights activist and I truly enjoyed seeing how well they...More

When going for Jungle Island I didn't expect to come back crying. At the beginning you are amazed by fancy parrots and a few other birds running around free but all that can only blind a completely heartless person. I will upload pictures of the...More

Dear sweet, I am distressed to read your opinion from your visit. The welfare of the animals in our care is our highest concern. Almost every animal in our collection is a rescue animal, including the ones you mention. I'd love to have the opportunity...More

For a "sanctuary", many of the primates and large cats live in very small enclosures. I was fighting tears while trying to look cheerful for my 2 small children. With the money they charge, surely they can invest in better habitats.More

We petted kangaroos, fed flamingos, held a baby tiger, and played with a sloth family. It was all awesome. Now, we did have to pay for the tiger and sloth experience separately. And the admission ticket wasn't cheap to begin with. But this is an...More

Hi there. How does someone use the Miami Explorer Pass at this location? And if we show up around 3pm on a Saturday is that too late or too busy to see everything? Thanks.

Hi, I suppose you have to ask these questions the Jungle site. Tnx
Is there a charge for parking? How much? Can you combine it with a Miami tour?

I'm an animal lover having my 50th birthday this year and working through my animal encounter bucket list. I always include animal encounters into my family vacations. Although I love parrots, iguanas, and other more common wildlife species, I've experienced so many of these already and am excitingly looking for the less common ones to check off my bucket list. The sloths and lemurs would be new wonderful encounters for me, but I am particularly interested in whether there are opportunities to interact with orangutans. Can you please let me know if this is possible through the admission or through a paid encounter? I would be happy to schedule one with a donation as well. Also, it was not clear to me how the VIP tours may differ from a general admission plus lemur and sloth interaction. I am not interested in the VIP seats for shows so this is not an additional benefit that I would be willing to pay for. Any help in better explaining these in terms of encounters (differently from what is on the website) would be very helpful. Thank you in advance.

There are orangutans in an enclosure, but encounters are NOT possible. We did not purchase VIP tickets or animal encounters, so I have no further info on that.
