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 and the new Florida Mission: Everglades. 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, camels, tortoises 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, tree-kangaroos, frogs, snakes, meerkats, and more animals than we could ever list.
Be sure to visit our newest exhibit Florida: Mission Everglades! Here you'll have the opportunity to come face-to-face with some incredible animals that call Florida home. Experience coastal mangrove marshes to vast grasslands, and also showcase some of our state's most amazing and treasured natural wonders. You'll be sure to see North American Black Bears, Bobcats, Bald eagles, American Crocodiles, Roseate Spoonbills and of course the American Alligators. Slide down through the North American River Otter exhibit and play tag. 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.
