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.

Our first stop was the zoo, highlight was feeding the giraffes. I would recommend for families! Just don't expect to see many animals during the summer, must be their slow season, understandable due to the summer heat!!!

So much to see and learn about the local wildlife. Really helpful staff and as a visitor from a country with very little in the way of dangerous animals, it was a real eye opener to the wildlife in Florida. The children loved it too...More

Do not go here expecting this to be comparable to San Diego zoo or anything. Its a relative small area but they manage to pack in a lot. The main draws are Monkey Island and the Giraffe feeding station. Its a great place for locals,...More

This isn't the best zoo we have visited. It's small and not many animals. The ones they do have are not active at all, except for the primates. Little hints, bring a picnic because there isn't much to buy on site, besides drinks. Also make...More

The monkey islands are the best part! We spent a cloudy day at the zoo and it was so much fun. Don't forget to try to feed the giraffe's while you are there too for an unforgettable experience!

This is a FUN Zoo to visit. Perfect for couples or families. It is not too BIG which makes it easy to walk around. The animals are obviously well cared for and they offer up great educational information about the animals too.

Love this Zoo! Haven't been back since 2003, we still loved it. Highly recommend. Do not need a full day, 1/2 day is enough.
