Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

“Great little compact zoo”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

Good zoo with a good selection of animals and well displayed. Free(after paying for entry) boat ride around a small lake with islands containing various apes and monkeys who swing from ropes and run around which makes them more interesting.
Number of talks by keepers in various locations and times about their animals and an open air theatre where they exhibit animals which you can often touch and ask questions about.

“Fun for all!”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

This zoo is so laid back...be sure to visit monkey island....we live locally and come often. Everyone is friendly and full of knowledge...many are volunteers. We went to one of the larger zoos while traveling and lamented how much we prefer Caribbean Gardens.
