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.

This zoo has come a long way in 40 years. Allow 2.5 hours for your visit and there is plenty of shade to keep out of the sun. Make sure to visit Athena the one-year-old Florida Panther rescue. Feedings are at 11:00 am (at the...More

Have been going to Naples zoo now for 5 years every time in town. Became a member which gives discounted fees to visit anytime. Not to be missed and every visit can be different.

Couldn't see many animals. Construction was underway. Enjoyed the boat ride. Photographs taken while feeding the giraffes, but too expensive.

Sometimes when on vacation in SW Florida we just want something different to do than shopping, strolling downtown or going to the beach. And Naples has a wonderful venue that most people drive by and miss out on a great opportunity. As with all zoos,...More

It was great for about 1-2 hours, but not an all day place. We are from Nashville with family in Memphis and once you have been to a large zoo, such as Memphis, it is hard to compare.

I'd say that it depends on the weather.......If it's nearer to 100 degrees out, I would be able to handle 1.5 hours easily. If the temperature is nearer to 80 or 90, I'd stay longer, have a picnic lunch, and sit under the... More
