Jungle Island, Miami

3.2
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.

  • My 5-year-old son and I were looking forward to a nice afternoon and an unforgettable experience. But after 2 hours we left again. Already at the beginning of the entrance it took forever, when it was our turn we knew why. Each visitor had to provide their personal details for the consent that the activities would be used at their own risk. Finally inside, it was a somewhat terrifying picture to see in what small cages the animals are kept here. The park itself is shady and beautifully designed. Then we wanted to go to a show and again we were disappointed. It was loud, the animals were brought in briefly and then taken away again and after 10 minutes the show was over. At the pavilion we wanted to have a bite to eat and again we queued for 30 minutes for our order. I don't want to know how long it takes when the park is full. To top it all off, music was played in a way loud, so that even a conversation during the meal was no longer possible. I am very annoyed that we have invested so much money.

  • We had the most amazing time! If you can afford the VIP tour it is definitely worth it! If not you have to at least do the lemur experience. The park is beautiful and well maintained front and back of...  more »

  • It is one of the best places for family outings as well as to take kids along. Last week, I went here with my family and the kids in the family had a lot of fun. . I went here with my family and the children in our family were very happy with this place. They enjoyed themselves and got to learn so much. The kids were so happy that they keep on asking about our next visit. This is a wonderful place.
  • We were blessed by a wonderful VIP tour with Ryan...he is amazing and so inspiring to listen to. The love he has for the animals that dwell within the Jungle Island boundaries is like no other love I have seen. The animals are family members for all that work there and our experiences were incredible. We were able to play with the lemurs, feed the tortoises, feed alligators, feed and sit with the Pink Flamingos, and pet the Condor! I would recommend this to everyone! Can't wait to see Ryan and his team again soon!
