    A large zoo with a refreshingly logical layout
    An expansive, beautiful property with a comprehensive collection of animals and exhibits, I was pleased to find the layout straightforward and logical, comprised of two large loops meeting in the middle without meandering paths and confusing dead-ends. I was able to walk the entirety of the grounds in about two hours and spent another hour or so in the various exhibits, opting to spend the money on the charming Lostman's River Ride (there's also a carousel and pedal boats if one is interested). Speaking of transportation, Zoo Miami used to offer a monorail to get guests from one end of the property to the other. Because it has been retired, the decision was made to offer Rydables, which are animal-shaped ECVs that can be rented based on time used. While a nice idea in theory, they seemed to be used mostly by teens with no regard for pedestrian traffic, so I was constantly having to be aware of them coming up behind me out of fear of getting into a collision with one. Great in theory; less so in execution. If you're a lover of animals, there isn't much reason not to visit.

    Amazing
    We visited in august 2023. This zoo is large there is a lot of walking but it is mostly flat. We did the giraffe feed which is just a walk up which you pay an amount and get to feed the giraffes, it was definitely one of the highlights of our holiday. The staff are very friendly and it is a really nice and clean zoo.

    A must do
    A must if visiting Miami. It's not the first, second, or third thing you think of when visiting Miami but it should be up there. The zoo is very large and well kept up. It's over 750 acres compared to the San Diego Zoo at 100 acres. The walking paths are wide with lots of little areas to stop and rest. There are multiple playgrounds and eating areas. Our favorite area (despite being Florida natives) was actually the Everglades area. Seeing animals I see all the time I thought would be no big deal, bit was it arranged so nicely with little cool things (like a clear slide in the otter area). We spent 4.5hrs and missed all of the Asia section and none of the zoo keeper talks. Expect to spend all day here and highly consider the bike rentals. The only downside of the zoo is it's so far from Miami downtown or other more northern parts of MDC, but worth the trip, especially with a little one!

    Large zoo, and lots of fun.
    This is a vey large, well laid out zoo with lots of animals in pretty large enclosures. Unfortunately, quite a few of the animals were absent or hiding (or on vacation?), but the majority were there. You can rent family bike carts if you want to save all the walking it requires. We allotted three hours before our flight home, but found ourselves rushing through the final continent, so give yourselves four hours if doing it all on foot. We also saw the critter show which was cute and showcased some birds and a serval.

    Huge Zoo
    What a zoo! This zoo is HUMONGOUS and has lots of great animals to see. Getting a bike taxi is highly recommended because if you walk it you won't be able to see as much. Some of the exhibits and attractions weren't running or didn't seem to be open (maybe they're waiting for summer?) but we were happy enough to ride our bikes around. For what it's worth, it isn't really spelled out anywhere how many people can fit in one bike taxi. There's room for a child to sit in the middle between two adults (in addition to the front seats). This would have saved us some money had we known, as we rented two instead of one. Get there early so you can park towards the front.

    Great fun but endless money making
    Great family fun day. Tickets were OK price wise. However, lots of additional costs. Would recommend hiring a pedal bike/ taxi to see everything. This was also a fun experience. Aminal feeding was also a big hit. Lots of animals to see but a big number of empty enclosures too. Very early closing time given the cost. Some employees in the gift shop were a little clueless

    Great place to visit!
    Lovely zoo. So many cool animals and the way the exhibits are created you feel like you could touch the animals! There with a lot of things to see and do. Wear sneakers and bring water bottles! It cost us $130 for a family of six.

    Don't leave Miami without seeing Zoo Miami
    It was a perfect weather day to go to the zoo, even if just for an hour. That was all the time we had, but it was worth it. This zoo is huge! 750 acres, one of the largest in Florida. You have to be in top physical shape to walk it all. I would have to do it in several visits. We did see the flamingos, which was incredible. Such graceful birds. Next time, we will do another section of the Zoo.

    Wow! Great Visit!
    Wow! Zoo Miami exceeded my expectations over and over. We easily spent 5 hours strolling and admiring. We saw the tiger, elephants, chimps, girillas, lions, otters and so much more. I was enthralled by the trees and plants all through the zoo. I saw a Rainbow Eucalyptus, Poinciana and scores of others. Hydration stations to fill your water bottle are nicely spaced so you can stay hydrated. We also had Pina Colada Icees to help cool down. Almost all of the animals were not only visible, but active as well. TIP: Check out the flamingo mud nests. You will see some sitting on them at the entrance..

    What a Zoo-perb experience!
    This review is rather late, but we went in January 2024 to the Miami Zoo and paid for the VIP Tour. It may be slightly pricey, but it was totally worth it in our opinion. We had very limited time due to getting off a cruise ship and heading to the airport. We met Paul our tour guide and he was so knowledgeable and welcoming. The golf cart ride saved our legs and we got to see more of the animals faster than if we had walked. It was great that the animals have the ‘public’ area to the front, but also have areas where they can’t be seen, so they have some ‘downtime’. Feeding the giraffes, seeing the elephants up close as well as a sleeping koala was a very special honour. Would definitely recommend the experience!
