Zoo Miami (also known as The Miami-Dade Zoological Park and Gardens) is the largest and oldest zoological garden in Florida and the only sub-tropical zoo in the continental United States.
The unique climate in South Florida allows us to keep a wide variety of animals from Asia, Australia, and Africa, representing a broad mix of species that is unlike any other zoo in the country.
Guests can feed giraffes, camels, parrots, the highly endangered rhino, and even the ancient Galapagos tortoise. Whether you explore the zoo by cycle, foot, or monorail, you can always learn something and make long-lasting memories at Zoo Miami.
