Overview
More
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.

This zoo is more like a conservation or preserve than a zoo meant to entertain guests. If you are looking for something to do in Naples, go! We particularly enjoyed the primate cruise which features different islands with monkeys and lemurs. The guide is extremely...More

This is a great attraction. It’s clean many animal to view. Employees are knowledgeable and professional. Note: there is a lot of walking but it was manageable. Lots of opportunities to sit and get out of the sun.

overall an excellent zoo with plenty of animals all tucked away in a organic style park that felt much more like a wildlife preserve then a tourist trap. Feeding the giraffes was fun and the staff polite and informative

Boat ride and monkeys are fantastic. All kinds of animals for both children and adults to enjoy. Go during off season to avoid the crowds if possible. Great way to spend a day.

I'd say that it depends on the weather.......If it's nearer to 100 degrees out, I would be able to handle 1.5 hours easily. If the temperature is nearer to 80 or 90, I'd stay longer, have a picnic lunch, and sit under the... More
