Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

Reviewed 27 July 2014

A nice Nature park. Exhibits seem well laid out, and there are a lot of beautiful plants along the pathways. Staff appeared friendly and helpful. Zoo was smaller and not overcrowded which s nice. Not an all day activity like some Zoo's.

“Crazy monkeys!”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

Our family enjoyed the Naples zoo very much. It was small, but had many endangered animals that we had not seen before. The apes were very active and loud! The kids loved the boat ride around lake Victoria.

“Nice, managible zoo for a morning of fun!”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

It was a very pleasant, manageable zoo for a two or three hour trip. Loved the show with the sloth; who knew they were so cute! It was under construction when we were there; I think it will be even better when that is finished.

“zoo on a rainy day”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

would have been more enjoyable if it wasn't raining during our visit but the animals we saw were entertaining. We especially liked seeing the tigers, cheetah and primates
