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, the kids really dig it and it is not so crazy that adults will hate it. An impressive collection with Bengal tiger, African porcupine, bears, etc

Wander your way along the paths to see alligators, lions, birds of many feathers, monkeys on small islands reached only by electric boats, and a huge giraffe area with more than 5 giraffes who will be happy to eat out of your hand and lick it clean. Ride a camel and learn about the trees and plants along the way... More

This year was our fourth visit to Naples Zoo - the kids insist we come here because they love the giraffes! For five dollars you can purchase some lettuce leaves and feed them yourself - it doesn't sound that amazing but they are beautiful creatures and it is fab! The zoo isn't massive but it has all the main animals... More

From the monkey islands viewed by boat, to watching the alligators to be fed to feeding the giraffes and taking a camel ride...it's almost like being on the Serengeti ! Great spot for all ages, walkable, educational and interactive! Don't miss the Naples Zoo!

While this zoo might not be as sprawling as some big city zoos like Miami, the Bronx, or San Diego, it is no less impressive. The grounds are well maintained, giving it's animal inhabitants a beautiful place to live. Programs are scheduled continuously throughout the day, so if you time it right, you might be able to meet the keeper,... More

Feeding the girafe , being five feet close to a tiger, watching snakes, monkeys, panther and parrots in surroundings looking like jungle or rainforest are amazing stories and adventures for young children and their parents and grand parents.

Brought our grandson for a day at the zoo. Although it was hot, he had a tremendous time, as did we. It has a lot to offer. The monkeys are so entertaining and the staff were so enthused. We went to a couple of shows, which we highly recommend. Absolutely awesome experience. My grandson was awe struct!

This zoo is small but has many different animals and exhibits. It is great for kids as they have many learning activities and informational exhibits. They also have live demonstrations of the animals with question and answer.
