Jungle Island, Miami

3.1
#3 of 6 in Zoos & Aquariums in Miami
Interact with tropical birds, see a tiger show, or visit the Everglades Habitat to further explore Florida's ecosystems at Jungle Island. Such famous guests as Winston Churchill and President Jimmy Carter have visited this zoo, which originally opened in 1936 as Parrot Jungle. In addition to animal shows and exhibitions, the park also provides visitors with opportunities for live animal encounters at its petting zoo. A few of the zoo's most popular attractions are its Parrot Bowl, which hosts the Winged Wonders bird show, and a 408 kg (400 lb) liger (combination lion and tiger). Jungle Island is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Miami Edition.

  • We had Jungle Island visit our school with a variety of animals that the students could learn more about and have hands-on interaction with them and the staff. It was amazing! Thank you so very much f...  more »

  • I bought the year pass and only ended up going once. It was cool to pet the kangaroos but it became obvious the more I walked around how small the cages were for large cats and primates, like depressingly small. Like the other comments where people call them "prisons" really arent exaggerating. The show with the birds was fun, but again the unhappiness of the animals really bothered me.
  • I love Jungle Island! I come here very often with my friends and always have a great time. I always make sure to stop here when i'm in the Miami Area. This zoo has lots of wonderful animals and sights. The shows are also very entertaining and educational. I always learn something new here! The penguins are also super adorable and I always enjoy watching their show. I also enjoy observing the alligators and the rest of the serpents. This zoo has so many different animals to look at and lots of activities, that I never run out of things to do and see. All of the animals, especially the birds are very friendly and sociable, and I love feeding them. The petting zoo is also very nice, where you can feed the goats with bottles and brush their hair. It is also so cool that they allow you to interact with baby kangaroos face to face. I can't think of any other place where you would be able to do that.The restaurant is also pretty good, however overpriced, just like the admission. To me it is worth if however, as the experience of seeing these unique, beautiful animals is amazing.
