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.

Very small for a zoo, but very well maintained. They truly care about the animals and it shows. A bit pricey if you don't take advantage of coupons or special days.

Good sized zoo to wander around - the animals were active on the day we visited, and the trip around the primate islands gets you much closer to them to watch them behaving naturally. The honey badgers, lions and bears were particularly active and we...More

Paul Simon's lyrics aren't really appropro for this zoo, 'cause I do believe that the giraffes are sincere...We went after mid-day. Most of the critters were snoozing, but one of the giraffes was being fed. They are gorgeous! What tongues! What legs! What necks! God...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.
