Zoo Miami is the ideal place for an individual, a couple, or an entire family to spend a day. As a matter of fact, visitors can travel the world in one day! They will visit Africa, Asia, the Amazon, and Australia. Zoo Miami consists of 340 developed acres with more than 3,000 animals and over 1,200 plants and trees which are planted in such a way as to mimic the animals’ natural habitats.

Guests will be able to feed giraffes, parrots, and a rhino; ride a camel; have animal encounters; meet the keepers during scheduled Meet the Zookeeper talks throughout the day; and much more. They will enjoy jaguars, lions, tigers, orangutans, elephants, the Wings of Asia Aviary (the largest Asian-themed aviary in the western hemisphere with hundreds of free-flying birds), gorillas, chimps, koalas, kangaroos, frogs, snakes, meerkats, and more animals than we could ever list.

At Amazon and Beyond, experience a rainforest, jaguars, anacondas, bats, venomous snakes (behind glass exhibits, of course), rare frogs, harpy eagles, and a 48,000-gallon aquarium. And our Playworld Playground is a great place for kids to burn off some of that excess energy. Half jungle, half water park, they can stay dry or wet. Zoo Miami has food and drink concession stands throughout and a beautiful gift shop where you can buy that special memento that will bring back wonderful memories of Zoo Miami!

Comments about Smart Destinations :

We toured the zoo in the afternoon. There are family bikes for rent, may be a good idea. The zoo is one large circle, no cut through to exit earlier. There is a monorail that runs through park, but only 4 stops, and runs on a schedule. We went in afternoon and by the time we were tired of walking, monorail already done working for day. Exhibits very nice, animals were easy to see. Good variety.

Loved it.
By Sandy Hernandez Verified Reviewer from Orlando Fl. on
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations :

My family and I really enjoyed the park. It is a very big zoo and affordable for the whole family. I highly recommend renting a family bike, they come in different sizes. We are a family off four and we rented the small one which cost $50.00 It was worth it. Just get ready to do a lot off pedaling. If you don't rent one, get ready to do a lot off walking. The best part was feeding the giraffes. So if you ever visit the zoo make sure you feed them. Overall we had a awesome time.

Comments about Smart Destinations :

This was our favorite day! It was awesome. This place is huge and it would take you eight hours to walk the whole thing and see it. We walked for two hours before we went back to get one of the golf cart bike thingies. What a blast. If you go -just plan on spending the $22.00 for a bike for two hours. (Or 50.00 for the whole day) The admission is cheap enough to make this affordable. Dont bother with the monorail. Snooze fest. The bike is the way to go. This is absolutely the best zoo we've been to and we've been to plenty. (San Diego was cool - but the cleanliness of this place and the way its organized makes it awesome.) I cant imagine you being disappointed in this one.Also if you buy the 3.00 souvenier cup you get refills anywhere in the park for 1.00 the rest of the day.
