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 is a small, but very beautiful, well organized and fun zoo. Our 3- year old ran from exhibit to exhibit to see the animals, which are positioned for easy viewing. The Monkey Island boat trip is very well done and adds to the whole...More

The zoo was well maintained and the animals seemed to have adequate space for each exhibit. I thought the price, $22.95, was a bit high for the size of the zoo. We did get a little discount for being members of another zoo. We could...More

We enjoy going to the Zoo and this one was more enjoyable than some others we have been to. You can get closer to the animals here. In other zoos there are moats that keep them far away. Here you can actually feed a camel....More

We spent about 4 hours at the zoo with 4 children ranging in ages 4-11. This included stopping for drinks and playing in the playground area.
