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.

The Naples Zoo is small but a very nice place to take the kids or grandkids. Money Island is a nice boat ride that is just the right length time wise.

I went to the zoo with a friend and her grandchildren. It is a wonderful zoo for young and old. The boat trip is worth waiting in line for but feeding the giraffes was a waste.

We always stop here. It’s cute, it’s a smaller zoo and you can easily cover it in less than 2 hours. The monkey island is unique. It is simply too hot here in the summer. The alligators were under water. The giraffes were not taking...More

A lovely, well-kept zoo. The staff seemed committed to their animals and the mission. The boat ride to Monkey Island was fun and informative, although pretty short. Good representation of animals and informative posters. I learned a lot of new things about the animals and...More

visiting Southwest Florida and want a feel for the real wildlife... this is the place... great for kids and good sampling of the native Florida wildlife. Hit it early on a Sunday morning and zero lines.

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
