Jungle Island, Miami

3.1
#4 of 19 in Fun & Games 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 went there couple times, most of animals are in cells with a fine mesh, so it’s hardly to take a photo of them and see them clearly. Parrots at the entrance are always photogenic 🤳🏼
  • Great staff Kids loves this place. God bless you all in Jesus name.
  • 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.
  • Go for the animals , they need the support and money from us . However go on a full stomach , those restaurants and kiosks are independently run, and contribute nothing to the animals . I’m spending my money on good causes only
