Naples Zoo At Caribbean Gardens - Review

The zoo was opened in 1969 as a part of an initiative to redevelop and modify a botanical garden. This garden was the private property of botanist Dr. Henry Nehrling. These gardens were completely neglected after the death of Nehrling and so it was reopened by Julius Fleischmann and animals were added to it. At present the collection of this zoo is not large but around 70 species of animals that are permanent.

The best attractions of this zoo are:

  • Alligator Bay: This is a lake which serves as a home for American alligators and you will also find herons out here.
  • African Oasis: This is on the opposite side of the Alligator Bay and comprises of Africans animals such as crested porcupines, dorcas gazelles, greater kudus, miniature zebus, impala, African Grey Parrots, etc.
  • Leopard Rock: Here you can spot gorgeous black spotted leopards. There is also a ‘kopje’ on which they climb and play and this whole part is surrounded by glass walls.
  • Lake Victoria: This Lake comprises of a number of islands and here we find the primates of the zoo. Most of the species are now endangered. The best way to explore this area is by taking the short Victoria Lake Cruise is one of the catamarans of the zoo.
  • Lion’s Hair: This is a large area where the lions of the zoo stay.
  • Fossas of Madagascar: This is where you will find the Fosas which is not found anywhere else in the Northeast.
  • Black Bear Hammock: In this place stays large bears and is covered with a wall of glass. This is the largest bear exhibit east of the Mississippi River.
  • Tiger Forest: This is a natural bamboo forest with Malayan tigers.
  • Backyard Habitat: This place is certified by The National Wildlife Federation. You will find a lake full of various fishes here.

Naples Zoo At Caribbean Gardens, Naples Reviews

  • As a single father of a young son I have had the greatest experiences here. My mother lives in Naples and we always go here despite the fact Florida has plenty of wildlife you don’t have to pay to see. We love it because the staff is very friendly and the gift shop is very nice but a little pricey. It’s worth it though. They keep this place clean and have workers walking around everywhere to help answer questions or tell you not to go a certain way and keeping the grounds clean. If I could upload a video on this the windows are so clean between you and the animals that I fooled my friends into thinking I was standing without fear a foot away from a bear and I jokingly taunted it and it looked real and they believed me until I told them I was kidding. You can feed the giraffes with lettuce for cheap and that is fun for my son and I. They have boats to travel around the zoo with a guide talking although it’s hot or miss if you’ll see anything spectacular and that part is mostly monkeys, the alligators are in a separate area. I would like to see better views of the alligators because they are so close but the bushes and grass make it hard to see the close ones. They have shaded areas and snacks to buy. Great snow comes for the heat. Last time we went they had two people dressed up as iron man and captain America which was fun for my son and I. It was when one of the captain America movies had recently come out so it attracted a lot of people but the lines never were too long and they were very polite. The heat is a pain and make sure you are prepared unless it’s cold or raining and if that’s the case they close a lot of things so plan it carefully. The captain America and iron man are our most recent experience here but everything is the same when I’ve visited besides that attraction.

  • Wonderful zoo! We have been to many more famous ones. The Naples Zoo surprised us with the animals that we have never heard of before! Make sure to visit their shows and take a boat tour. It is great education! I will never throw a banana peel to the curb again!

  • Great Zoo. perfect for little kids (2-5). Plenty to do and see and a great play ground for kids to run around. We also got to feed giraffes lettuce which was a lot of fun and was very exciting for the smaller kids to do and see. Well worth the time to check out.

  • I went here as an adult parent thirty years ago with my kids when it was Jungle Larry's Safari Land. I grew up in Cleveland and watched Jungle Larry on out family's black and white TV set every afternoon. Somewhere during the last thirty years Jungle Larry passed on to that jungle in the sky and after a couple of hurricanes some Naples benefactors and the city of Naples purchased it and made improvements. This is really a great place to take kids. The zoo is not too big that it wears the kids out and the staff really cares about the animals and is well-run. I feel it is just the right size for a zoo and can hold the interest of kids for a full day. What's not to like about seeing gators, elephants, and letting giraffes eat out of your hands? Other than the beach, probably the best place for a young family to spend a vacation day.

  • The kids and I really enjoy this zoo. It's not very big compared to Tampa or Miami, but it's nice still the same. You can take your own picnic lunch or buy something from subways or the store that's there. it has a little park next to the covered pavilion where you can eat your lunch and let the kids run around at the little park once they are done. You can see everything there in a matter of a few hours. The monkey island boat tour is a cool added bonus. Sometimes they offer a groupon deal for the year membership so be sure to check that out before you purchase tickets.
