We have over 3,000 animals visible from the walkways. At Zoo Miami you will find mammals, birds, fish, amphibians, reptiles. Our collection includes highly endangered animals.
We are comprised of 740 acres, 346 of which are developed and house the zoo. This translates into over three miles of walkways. Most of the undeveloped land, which surrounds the zoo, is endangered and federally protected.
It depends whether you walk, rent a safari cycle, take a tram tour, or the monorail. The average visit takes about four hours, but for some people one eight-hour day is not enough. For those visitors that need an extra day, you have up to 10 days from the original purchase date to return to the zoo for only $10 per person plus tax with your ticket stub. For access all year round you can purchase membership on the Membership section of our website.
We have concession stands throughout and they serve regular and vegetarian foods; we do not serve kosher meals but you may bring your own, store it in the lobby of the Administration Building with the receptionist, and then pick it up when you are ready to eat. Picnic tables are located outside the zoo entrance.
We do not allow food or drinks inside the park. If you bring food, you may leave it at the reception desk and when you are ready to eat, you may store it in the lobby of the Administration Building with the receptionist and then pick it up when you are ready to eat. Picnic tables are located outside the zoo entrance.
The general rule states that outside food and beverage are not allowed in the zoo.
Guests who do not wish to return food items to their vehicles can store their belongings in crates located in the lobby in the Administration Building at the main entrance.
