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.

The Naples Zoo is a must-see animal park in the heart of Naples. Close to everything and easy to get to. Take the boat ride and visit the monkeys on their islands. See the lions. Take your camera.

Great way to spend a morning. Inexpensive fun, especially if you buy the annual resident pass. Avoid the first Sat of the month - free for residents and packed.

We visit the zoo a few times a year - usually when we have nothing better to do. This is a fantastic little zoo - very educational - and the theater show, alligator feeding/show and primate boat tour are very good for a small zoo.

Naples Zoo survives on NO public/government funding, making their presentation and facilities even more impressive. This is a small zoo that is easily walked under 2 hours. Fun boat ride to see various primates in their habitats. Zoo workers/guides are friendly and well-informed. On a...More

This zoo isn't some huge attraction you would find in a place like Tampa. They do have plenty of interesting animals here. Easily walked around in 1-2 hours. The primate boat tour is an interesting concept where the primates are free to roam a huge...More

Sorry. I have been to the zoo several times but never visited the cafe.
How much is a ticket for a child under two? How much extra is the boat ride, camel ride, and to feed the giraffes?

Children age 2 and under are free. I believe the camel rides are $5. I do not know the cost for feeding the Giraffes. The boat ride is included with the cost of admission. FYI- parking is free
