Second time we have visited Naples zoo in the past few years. It's easy to get to and easy to park. Staff are very friendly and accommodating.

The zoo itself is a little underwhelming, as there aren't that many animals. It's a nice little walk around, although it can be very hot, even in September, so bring your water and hat.

We spent about an hour and a half there and we saw everything easily.

If you've got small kids that want to see some interesting animals then this is ideal.

Nice small zoo. What it lacks in size it makes up for in information. Try and catch the talks by the zookeepers. They are very interesting. Also the giraffe feeding was very cool. I do note everything is a bit pricy. $5.00 for a bottle of water is a bit much. But it all goes to a good cause.

Meh, I was a bit disappointed. It was much smaller than our Zoo in Jacksonville and I thought some of the animals had too small of a space, particularly the giraffes. We went early in the morning but did not see many of the animals out and about. No bear in sight. I thought the placement of a playground right inside the front entrance could be problematic for parents of little ones prone to melt downs who just want to play there and not enjoy the zoo first. I don't know, maybe I expected too much.

My wife and I just visited the Naples Zoo in Naples, Florida while visiting the area. This place is smaller than many zoos however, they have a rather unique collection of animals, some of which you won't see in other zoos. Their primates are contained on islands in a small lake with a 'cruise' in a pontoon boat available at regular intervals throughout the day to get a closer look. (The boat ride is included in the price of admission to the zoo.) They also offer a very reasonably priced giraffe feeding experience where you can get closer to giraffes than most any zoo we have been to. If you are going to visit, we highly recommend you visit first thing when they open as it can get very hot later in the day with there not being a whole lot of shade that has a breeze. (The animals also tend to be more active and visible earlier in the day.) This zoo is also affiliated with many wildlife conservation efforts and organizations so your dollars spent here will definitely go towards supporting some good causes worldwide. The staff are also all very friendly and informative. We highly recommend paying this zoo a visit when you have time.

This is one of the finest zoos I've been to. I always try to see how much area these animals are given. I think the Black Bear had the biggest enclosure, but unfortunately, we didn't see him. Was surprised they didn't have an indoor cafeteria for people to sit inside an air conditioned room and have lunch, as the Palm Beach Zoo has. Overall, a wonderful experience.

Loved being able to feed the giraffes. Also was a boat ride looking at all the different species of monkeys on this little island. It was very enjoyable. Park was very clean. Food and drinks available.

Fun day activity for the whole family. No zoo is ideal but these animals appear well taken care of. Better environment than Tampa zoo for example. Staff are friendly.

This zoo is one of the best I’ve been to. The primate cruise and seated safari were interesting and informative. I recommend getting there as early as you can to beat the heat and the crowds

While on the smaller side for a Zoo this felt so rich in attention to detail and each encounter was very intimate. I especially enjoyed the boat ride around monkey island and the leopards. Clean, and very beautiful and rich in history i think it was perfect for a morning activity.

Small zoo with caged animals in hot environments. A lot of crowds with baby strollers, watch your shins! Most animals not seen. Not with the 25 dollars and crowds.
