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.

My husband, son and I spent a long weekend in Naples. We headed to the zoo early on a Saturday morning. The zoo is easy to negotiate and we found all of the animals to be active and obviously well cared for. The primate cruise...More

Very nicely kept zoo a couple of miles from Naples city center, across the street from the Coastland shopping mall. I took my young teenager there, even though I'm not a big fan of seeing "wild" animals behind wire fences. Very wide range of animals,...More

We live in Naples, are members of the zoo, and visit frequently. It never gets old. There is always something going on, and there are frequently new animals to visit. We always go to the keepers' presentation, at which they introduce a few animals and...More

We've been to Naples dozens of times and pretty much make it a point to visit the zoo. The best thing about the Naples Zoo is the closeness of the animals. The lions, zebras and giraffes are literally a few feet away. As much as...More

The Naples zoo is small with a wide variety of animals. The location is convenient with a huge parking area. The grounds are shaded and each viewing area has a well written and informative poster for every animal. There is a gift shop, snack bar...More

Our first stop was the zoo, highlight was feeding the giraffes. I would recommend for families! Just don't expect to see many animals during the summer, must be their slow season, understandable due to the summer heat!!!

Do not go here expecting this to be comparable to San Diego zoo or anything. Its a relative small area but they manage to pack in a lot. The main draws are Monkey Island and the Giraffe feeding station. Its a great place for locals,...More
