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.

This is a cute little boat ride to see the monkey island, alligator feeding in the center at noon, then off to see the tent where the snakes are presented. They also have some lions and turtles.

To bad they have to rob you to see their poor excuse of a zoo. The Indianapolis zoo is 100 times better and cost half as much. I will not return

Got there early, so no line up for the boat, and we got to feed the giraffes right away. With a troupe of young children (all under 6), it was perfect. Plenty to see, plenty to do, and everything seemed really well taken care of. We were there 4 hours, which was enough, esp since as the day wore on,... More

We were at the zoo today with young children. The zoo offers camel rides and one can feed the giraffes for an extra fee. Overall it may be a little pricey, but there is a lot to see and do. Look for discount coupons to save a little money.

It was a fun day. Don't go if it's too hot. The kids feeding the giraffes was fun to watch. Even though the boat ride line was long, it was a nice boat ride to watch the monkeys on the different islands. Kind of expensive if you bring the whole family. You might want to buy an annual pass. They... More

I expected the Zoo to be "a Zoo" as it was spring break in Florida and Canada and cold out and I expected everyone to go there, however, even though the parking lot was quite full, the zoo is very large and all exhibits were easily seen. The "shows" which we were able to watch were interesting, and when the... More

Great Place to take the Family and spend the day. There is always something going on, shows, feeding the animals, special celebrations... It is such a beautiful natural setting, the trees, flowers, etc. Everything is well maintained and it is so easy to see all of the animals as you go from one exhibit to the next. It is a... More
