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.

I visited the zoo for the first time this week. It was nice but really suited best for children. The zoo is set up on a 1 mile loop so it's not too big or too long. It's also quite level and easy walking. There is not a wide variety of animals as you would see at a zoo in... More

Although the Naples Zoo isn't very large it does have quite a lot of different animals. Meet the keepers is the best because you can see the animals up close and have questions answered by the keepers. The clouded leapers were beautiful! Nice also was seeing monkeys on there private island. Gila reptile I had never seen before!

Not a huge zoo so it was nice to be able to do in 1.5 hours. Rode a camel and fed the Giraffe's! Went on a little boat ride to see the different kinds of monkeys who live on little islands in the park.

As the title says, this is a great little zoo. They have a nice variety of animals on the grounds including Lion, tiger, Florida Panther, giraffes, cheetah, alligators, bears and many more. You can feed the giraffes at specific set times. They offer a boat ride to see howling monkeys as well as camel rides. There is a food concession... More

The Naples Zoo is a perfect size for small grandkids and grandparents. Very clean and well maintained, the animals , especially the giraffes seem happy and my granddaughter is a big fan of holding up the lettuce leaves for them to eat!

I love this zoo! It is small enough to conquer in a few hours yet filled with wonderful animals and sights. My grandchildren enjoyed feeding the giraffe and attending various educational exhibits. My husband and I just enjoy walking around and taking it all in.

Great place to take your kids to walk around and see some great animals. There is a little cruise boat that you can access that floats around several islands that have monkeys on them. Food and snacks are available for the little ones once they become hungry. And yes, you can bring in your own food and drinks as well.

The highlight of this zoo is a boat trip to a series of a half dozen little islands that are each populated with different breeds of monkeys. The monkeys seem to perform for the tour boat, swinging from the trees and doing jumps and leaps as the boat goes around each island. This zoo also schedules a series of demonstrations... More
