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.

Naples Zoo was very clean and entertaining. Enjoyed the option to take a little boat tour to see some monkeys. Enjoyed watching the Gator feeding and LOVED the Giraffe exhibit

A nice zoo for a small town but very expensive. I find it lacking in a lot of larger zoo comparisons but i come from New York and not much can compare to the Bronx Zoo. I find it worth the trip over to Miami to visit the Miami Zoo which is less expensive and a much bettee zoo.

From the road, it seems unassuming. However, it is pretty large. Lots of animals, lots of walking. Very educational for myself and kids especially the seated safari. Highlight for me was the primate cruise. There's also a playground for the little ones, which I really appreciated since that was the highlight for my toddler. The majority of the staff were...

This zoo is beautiful and a great size for families. You can walk through the whole place and because of the modest size it is not too overwhelming for children. The boat ride is free and fun!

This zoo made my heart happy. Many zoos seem to have exploited animals. This zoo really focused on conservation and animal education. We loved the exhibit with the Florida Panther that had been saved.

Had a great time at this very manageable zoo! It had just enough to see animal wise and could be completed in a couple of hours. Don't miss the giraffe feeding. It was quite an experience!

This is a nice zoo, but realize it is small. It is not what one would expect. It has a small selection of animals with the giraffes being the largest. If you are trying to get the most experiences with your vacation budget, I am afraid you will be disappointed unless maybe you can find some coupons. As a point... More
