Monkey Jungle Miami
Where are we going today?
MONKEY JUNGLE is home to nearly 400 primates, most running free on a 30 acre reserve. It is one of the few protected habitats for endangered primates in the United States and the only one that the general public can explore. Visitors today are immediately welcome by the Java monkey troop, now numbering in the 80s. The Java monkeys forage through the Jungle eating natural foods. This experience with the monkeys continues to be a highlight of Monkey Jungle. The Java monkey is a skilled diver in the wild, collecting crabs and other shellfish along the riverbanks and mangrove swamps. Scheduled feedings at MONKEY JUNGLE show off these water skills as animals dive into a pool to receive fruit from the guides.
MONKEY JUNGLE has given a new look introducing audiences to the lifestyle of the orangutan. Always unpredictable, the audience often witnesses impromptu acts by these lovable apes. A total of 30 species of primates are represented at MONKEY JUNGLE including gibbons, guenons and spider monkeys. The Golden Lion Tamarin is native to the Brazilian jungle. Threatened with extinction, MONKEY JUNGLE proudly participates in an international effort to save the tiny creature.

As a human visitor clearly we were the one in cages. The animals appeared to love their habitat simply because They are multiplying. Many zoos FAIL to achieve that level of success with ANY ANIMAL

An outstanding place for kids! Our daughter had an incredible time this morning.
Definitely come first thing in the morning when Monkey Jungle opens. It's cool, lots of shade and you feel like you have the park to yourself. Such a great place!

Nice, but overpriced. The habitats looked good, but the cages and bird enclosures were average at best. No really exotic specimens, but probably a good place for younger kids with the feeding interaction. One of the older spider monkeys was a real prick, chasing away others, kids might even learn a little about behavior also. One lonely old lowland gorilla that deserved to be left alone instead of performing.

I visited Monkey Jungle when I was a child and it was one of the best attractions I can remember. I am now happy to share this attraction with my son. We visit Florida regularly and this is one of our favorite places to go. Monkeys are so much like humans and they are always entertaining to watch. I hope this place is able to stay open so my grandchildren and their children can enjoy it as much as I have.

Can't imagine a better place to go if you like monkeys....very unique experience compared to most zoo type settings. Well worth the visit.
