A great experience
Nov 2021
Had an absolutely wonderful day at the Zoo with my 20-somethings and my in-laws (3 generations). Everyone loved it...even the in-laws. We took the tram ride around the back of the park-worth it for those who tire easily. The park was SO CLEAN. Loved the water bottle filling stations. Most animals were easily in view and the variety of species was fabulous. Signage was great. Lunch was reasonably priced. Will come back.

A must see and do place in Miami and you will want to visit several times as it is large. The kids loved it!
The grandkids and I had a wonderful visit and will go back as there was so much to see that we didn't get to. I like how they are doing a lot of conservation and the animals have more space than other zoos I have been to. They also gave military discounts.

Huge space but exhibits not impressive
Nov 2021 • Friends
Great park area and well kept. CleanA but Lots of walking between exhibits and not really a lot to see…. Would not go back… best thing to do is rent one of those cycling things . We had a 2 year old with us so that was very helpful to have. But the exhibits were not impressive comparing with other zoos we been to. Next time we pick different adventure

Great time at the zoo, so many animal to see, flamingo, tiger, koala, monkeys, elephant, giraffes, crocodiles, zebra, cougar and so much. Kids water park area for the kids. Zoo has cafe were you can purchase food. The Amazon area is my favorite. Definitely recommend for anyone to go and experience the zoo.

Make Sure to Go Early So You Don't Get Yelled At
Sep 2021
Pros - the Zoo is beautifully maintained, and would be fun if you have the time. I wanted to take my 5-year old nephew and, for the short time we were there, he loved it. We were running late, and weren't able to get there until around 3:30, and rented a cycle because my elderly mother-in-law wouldn't have been able to walk the whole park. I was very concerned about trying to see as much of the part as possible in a short time, but we couldn't get far. At about 7 minutes to 5 (when the park closes), an employee told us shortly, "Park's Closed. Make your way to the exit - it's that way, and pointed. " Another couple wanted to take a picture and the lady put her hand on the employee's cart and he yelled at her, saying "don't touch!" in English and Spanish. It just gave me a bad vibe, especially after spending close to $200 on tickets for 5 adults and a child (granted, it's not the park's fault we ended up running late). Just got a bad vibe from that - I probably won't go back there.

A fun activity in Miami
The Zoo Miami was an experience. First of all there’s Safari Cycles that you can rent. These are bike cars that will seat up to 4 people and you have peddle to make it move. My family decided not to do it because we felt we could see the park better walking. Well we are we’re able to see the park but didn’t see the whole thing due to how big it is. There’s a reason you can rent the cycle cars. We saw everything but the Australian section in 2 and half hours. I would also like to say that becides being the biggest zoo I have ever been too, this zoo had a lot of animals that you don’t normally see at other zoos. So if your interested In seeing a zoo that has something different than look no further. The zoo staff members are also really nice and helpful and will answer any question you have on animal and where to go. Over all I would say this is a great zoo for families as it as a lot of food options, transportation options it even has a mini train. The one thing I will say is the price is totally worth it. Even though its a lot I think it’s a bargain for what you see and I will be back again

I think they need more animals of the same species
Sep 2021
I visited the Zoo because of my children, however I am not a zoo fan, because I think the animals need to be free in their natural habit, or at least living with more of the same specie.
The Zoo is divided in world sections, like Africa, Australia, Asia, with animals according to the geographical area.
The regular Fee to entrance is $ 30 USD but you can buy the Meal package for $ 39, and get the meal at the oasis restaurant after noon.
You can book a bike for 2 or more people, it will make it easier to move around, specially if you are coming with little kids.

The Zoo has reasonable areas for big animals, like elephants, antilopes or lions, even for the Birds, however in the Australia section, there is a Koala and another animal in a small room each one, which I think that's not nice for some one who is goint to be lockdown for the rest of his life, at least they should be with animals of the same specie in bigger areas, to make lees stressful their lifes.
There is also a big turtle at the snake area, living in a small container, this little creature bearly moves....

Anyway, is just my opinion,.. But I think is OK for families

This place is at a rip off and in the middle of nowhere. The animals not so good, the place needs updating.

Amazing Sea Life
Jul 2021
Miami Zoo was an experience that is great alone, as a couple or a family. The vast array of species that are offered was both inspiring and exciting to see and experience. I did not expect the animals and species that were there. I was very impressed with the cleanliness and employees professionalism and knowledge
