    Great fun! Take about 4h to walk it through. Not reasonable to rent a bike as it is actually not so long walk. There are also waterstands everywhere that help you cool you down with hot weather.

    Took my grandson, son and daughter-in-law. We had an awesome time. We fed the giraffes, pet animals, rode camels and the carousel. We all had a great time. The staff was always polite and helpful.

    Great time to stroll with the family. Animals appear to be well taken care off. Go early morning and most animals will be out. Very much worth the price.

    It's very hot during the summer to go to which was a bad idea for me to go in mid October when it's still too hot. But apart from the sweatiness I had a great time with my friends renting bike

    With so many animals to see, make sure you get a look at the Sahara's giant elands, the Komodo dragon, river otters, Bengal tigers, African and Asian elephants, camels and giraffes. Read more

    Beautiful displays, aviary, very large, bring comfortable shoes and water bottle, 4-5 hours to see everything, rent peddle powered carriages to zip through, or pay for a/c monorail to get around.
  • Giannina G.
    Great place, animals, fun, explanations from vets. At least 4 hours needed, bikes to rent, boat to pedal, kind of expensive. Downside you can't even take water in; you have to buy EVERYTHING inside.

    Awesome zoo: spacious for the animals, not very crowded, atmospheric ambient music, and a very pleasant space in itself even without the animals

    Feeding the birds in the "Wings Down Under" aviary was wonderful !! Also feeding the Galapagos tortoises for only $5 was amazing.

    Enjoy the only sub tropical zoo in the continental US. Asia, Africa, Australia and the Amazon are the main features. Enjoy Miami's Diamond in the Rough attraction. Holds a special place in my heart.

    Огромная площадь, ногами пройти тяжко, особенно в летний сезон, обязательно берите велосипеды. Животные размещены на уровне 3,5/5 (московский приравниваю к хостелу), для сравнения в Буш Гарденс 5/5
