Overview
More
Zoo Miami (also known as The Miami-Dade Zoological Park and Gardens) is the largest and oldest zoological garden in Florida, and the only sub-tropical zoo in the continental United States. The unique climate in South Florida allows us to keep a wide variety of animals from Asia, Australia and Africa, representing a broad mix of species that is unlike any other zoo in the country. Zoo Miami today occupies almost 750 acres, and is home to more than 3,000 animals representing over 500 different species. Of this population, more than 40 species are classified as endangered. The zoo also houses more than 1,000 species of trees, palms and other plants, and over 100 special exhibits showcasing a broad number of species and scientific topics. We are accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) which means we have passed a rigorous application and inspection process and meet or exceed the AZA's standards for animal health and welfare, fundraising, zoo staffing, and involvement in global conservation efforts. Zoo Miami is proud to be an active leader in many global wildlife and environmental conservation initiatives, and we are currently involved in over 36 projects taking place on six continents.

We visit zoos all over when we travel, and this was one of my favorites to date! Although the admission cost is higher than the average zoo, the setting is so nice, we felt it was worth it. Since it is a large zoo, we...More

Don't get me wrong - we had a good day. However, everything is extra, even though you've paid a fair bit for a ticket. It is a large area and the enclosures are spread out a lot and loads are empty. We hired a "safari...More

If you’re in the mood for empty habitats, this is your place. $23 to walk for miles to see not much.

Zoo Miami is a great zoo with lots of animals. Because they're kept in large areas, be ready to walk, or better yet, rent the carts. The carts make it fun and a bit more relaxing. Highly suggest you don't go mid-day, as most animals...More

Miami Zoo is well setup and has a little bit for everyone, if your kids are below 12 you will love it. a bit trickier for teenagers. The gorilla habitat is specially impressive.

Would be strange if they were allowed unless they are working animals. The zoo animals would get too agitated.

No saltwater fish, but there is a nice freswater fish viewing area inside the Wings of Asia aviary at the zoo. Would check out the Miami Seaquarium if looking for an aquarium.
