Where are we going today?

If you want a family friendly animal attraction to enjoy on your day out, Zoo Miami (formerly Miami MetroZoo) might have just what you need!

We all know that you go to a zoo for the animals, so let's tell you about the animals! Zoo Miami have a whole range of very cool, weird and wonderful creatures! They have the sweet little amphibians, the colorful birds, cheeky and cute mammals and those slithering and scaly reptiles.

Have you ever been up close to a smokey jungle frog, or seen the bright blues of a blue poison dart frog?

Have you always wanted to see the impressive oranges and pinks of the flamingo, or look into the eyes of the African white-backed vulture?

Zoo Miami has Burmese pythons ready to say hello, and beautiful emerald tree boas on the lookout for a new friend!

Then, of course, there are the mammals! Perhaps it's the primates that you have always wanted to see up close - from the Golden Lion Tamarin to the black howler monkey. The big cat family are always one to impress, with cheetahs, lions and of course tigers. From Asia to Australia - Zoo Miami certainly bring the animals of the world to you! 

Having this interaction with the animals also gives kids a chance to really learn about the creatures, and their habitats, and of course about conservation and the environment. 

Zoo Miami also have some very fun experiences and attractions which are always popular with kids, from the giraffe feeding station, to Humpy's camel rides!  There are even water experiences and playground fun!

Zoo Miami is more than just animals - so why not head there and try it out for yourself!

    First time going there it was great my hubby and I loved it but make sure you rent a bike, we didn't and omg we where hurting towards the end lol, but its a great place to go. Will visit again but next time we are getting a bike lol.... They have alot of cool activities, can get wet, rent a duck you can paddle on the lake etc... I highly recommend getting there early because it will take all day to see it all. Have fun! :)

    This zoo was very nice when we went. My fiance and I had a really great time feeding he giraffes! There were plenty of exhibits from reptiles to tigers. The organization is really cool too, you go through each exhibit by the origin of which the animal lives. All ages could learn from the experience. I usually disagree with wild animal captivity but these beautiful creatures have a lot of land to roam, it is the closest thing to watching them in their natural environments. I would say the koala cages could be a little bigger and better maintained...Read More

    I visited the zoo with some friends last weekend, most of whom where shocked and saddened to see the conditions under which some animals where forced. Particularly, the koala cage was extremely small and disturbing. Koalas are a valuable and frail species, and it broke my heart to see this creature under such deplorable conditions at the zoo. To make things worse, children tend to go unsupervised and bang on the glass continuously. I regret to say that our visit to the zoo reminded us of why it is we don't frequent it and will most likely never...Read More
