Florida’s oldest zoological garden, Zoo Miami is home to over 2,000 animals across more than 100 exhibits. An air-conditioned monorail takes a loop around the zoo and is a comfortable and convenient way to get around the site, providing an aerial view of some exhibits. There are four main areas of the zoo: Asia, Africa, Amazon and beyond, and Australia. Those who want to experience animals up close can brush an Indian rhinoceros or feed a giraffe for an additional fee. For more information about the zoo and its animals, take a narrated tram ride or guided tour. For Zoo Miami and beyond, use our Miami road trip planning site to get the most from your Miami vacation.

Zoo Miami Reviews
We went with adult family members on a saturday. We were there from 11am to 4pm and still didn't see everything due to the size of the zoo. The animals have large habitats and are well cared for. They... more »

Perfectly-signposted streets, monorail, places to eat at reasonable prices and a complete variety of animals. Safety pin! In my opinion better and more cost-effective than Animal Kingdom in Orlando
I visited here in August. It was hot, but there are fortunately a lot of air conditioned buildings to break up the heat. They have a couple of cute eateries throughout the zoo, and several serve beer. The admission price is what you'd expect from a large zoo - it's not cheap, but it's worth it. There is so much to see here that it would honestly take more than a single day to see it all. I recommend buying a refillable soda cup at the beginning of your day.
My family and I had a great time at Metro Zoo. I was amazed on how much better it was from the old Metro Zoo. The bathroom was very clean and so was everything else. The animals looked great and the displays gave informative information on all animals. We loved the water park, it was refreshing after all that sun. The train ride was also nice. Kept up the great work. Definitely returning.
