“Nice Zoo... but stay away from the summer.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

We did this during summer and boy it was hot... remember as it's quite a walk unless you decide to take the rental vehicles... Loved the Giraffe and the other animals that were on display... We even fed the giraffe offcourse there is a small fee.

“Better then most zoos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

I have been to several zoos and most of them are all the same... or seem that way. This is the first zoo that I have been to in many years that I really found both interesting and enjoyed. They had animals that are not always seen in other zoos (like elephants, chimps and a kawal bear). The layout of the zoo is beautiful. Be prepared to walk and enjoy the fresh air. We will go back next time we go to Miami.

“Great Way To Spend A Day!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

The zoo is a nice place to visit and spend some time learning about our animal friends. The place is kept very clean and the animals all seem to be treated very well. The keepers were feeding many of them when we were there and it was fun to watch what they do and the relationship they have with the animals. You can walk all the way around the zoo in about 5 hours or a little longer if you spend more time at some of the exhibits. Great family fun.

“buen lugar para caminar mucho, great place for a walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

My 7 year old enjoyed the water games, fun place to walk, great change of pace from the mall scene. Mi hijo disfruto del juego de agua, entretenido, buen lugar para cansarse sin comprar.
