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.

Our family from the tweens to the grannies love this zoo. The boys love the gator feedings. The girls thrill to feed the giraffes. Everyone loves the boat ride around monkey islands. Great way to spend the afternoon with the whole tribe. Nice take homes at the gift shop.

The Naples Zoo is a great place to spend a day or just an afternoon. The grounds are always well kept. The live animal are in ideal areas for safe viewing. There is a picnic area and one can bring a lunch. There are shows at different times of the day. One can witness the feeding of the alligators. There... More

This is a small zoo with a wonderful mix of animals. The boat ride around the monkey islands is fun. The giraffe enclosure is not to be missed. This is a nice place to spend a couple hours with the kids.

Visited with one year and three year old grandchildren. About a two hour visit is just right for their attention spans. Great local zoo! We listened to three keepers exhibit their animals. Three year old was in awe feeding the giraffes.

Went to the zoo while in the area visiting friends. The zoo has many of the typical animals you would expect to see at a zoo, plus some that are from this area. We enjoyed the alligators and feeding the giraffes the most! They have times throughout the day when you can meet the keepers of specific animals but somehow... More

Went there with family and we were all disappointed. Very expensive admission prices for a tiny boring little zoo. So few animals and many were hidden or sleeping. Only interesting parts were the giraffe feeding and the lecture/exhibit of different little animals. I guess we were spoiled having come from Chicago and the Brookfield zoo which is outstanding!.

Went to the Naples Zoo for the first time yesterday and had a great time. The Zoo is not that big, but it has some very interesting animals and exhibits. Prior to becoming a Zoo it was a botanical garden, and much of garden remains and gives this Zoo a feeling not shared by some other zoos. Feeding the giraffes... More

You can feed the animals or just watch them in their own habitat. They sell food and drinks and they have shows that teach us about the animals. You can take a boat around monkey island and see how they live and they have a gift shop to buy what ever your favorite animal is. ENJOY
