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.

Great zoo, very educational, lots of "meet the keeper" encounters to learn about the animals they have there. I recommend going to each one if your time allows. Visit early and do the boat tour early when the animals are most active. The zoo is wagon and stroller friendly and you can bring your own snacks which is nice. Lots... More

Everyone needs to meet Unofficial and feed the giraffes. It was hot, but we saw all of the animals (I think). It is well worth the money.

This zoo is very small. We went with my 2 small grandchildren 2 and 4. We went about 10am and it was a very hot and humid day, not many of the animals were out so we didn't get to see much. The best part of the zoo was the boat ride,the children really enjoyed it. They got to see... More

People think if you have seen one zoo you have seen them all. This was a great surprise, We were able to feed giraffes, get up close and personnel to many of the animals and even watch the keepers call alligators by their names and they came up on the shoreline to be feed a treat. Also they have a... More

Visiting FL with friends, we decided to go to the zoo. I'm not sure what I expected but this is really a wonderful zoo. The plants and trails make you feel you're touring a jungle. A shot boat ride takes you past Monkey Island and the monkeys were very entertaining. It was an extremely hot day so some of the... More

Took my three year old grand daughter to the zoo for the first time. It's just great! Very quaint with plenty to see. Boat ride around the monkeys habitat was the highlight for her plus the giraffes. They even have a very nice play ground for the kids. Gift shop is well stocked.

Excellent experience!definatly with going to see. There are some ares where the kids can cool off so a bathing suite to bring along with a towel may be a good option.

We loved our visit here it was just fab. Route was mapped out and easy and you didn't miss a thing plus no moaning from the kids as wasn't a long walk round. Much better than UK zoos and we loved it, would go again and not too expensive either.
