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.

While I think the Naples Zoo is very interesting, entertaining and informative I feel it is quite a high price for what it is. However, that point aside, we took our family there last week and we were told at 4:09pm that we couldn't get...More

Had a nice hour and a half with my husband and another couple visiting the zoo on a cold day. Very informative staff and loved seeing the alligators and the trainers. Would go again but with the children!

I’d have given a 5 except that the zoo food is pretty well, Zooey. Nothing healthy. But the zoo itself is great! Can walk it in about an hour. Lots of good extras. A camel ride ($12 I think?). Feed the giraffe with a photo...More

We have been visiting twice the past weeks, because our 7 year old daughter loves all kind of cats. So, the cheetahs, clouded leopards, lions and so on has been wonderful. The "Meet the keeper" is a nice experience.

Among all the zoos in America, the Naples Zoo qualifies as perhaps the most diverse, entertaining, and educational of all the "smaller" zoos. The volunteer organization that runs the local zoo has honed the zoo into a most enjoyable experience for each visitor. Whether you...More

This is a very cute zoo. It is small but has everything you want to see, the monkey island boat trip is fantastic and my kids loved feeding the giraffes.

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.
