Zoo Miami, formerly known as Miami MetroZoo, is the largest and oldest zoological garden in Florida. There are four main exhibit sections in the zoo; Asia, Africa, Amazon and Beyond and Australia. Pelican Cove, a large pond fed by a waterfall, contains various types of pelicans and waterfowl and lies adjacent to the ticket booths and Island Trader, the zoo’s gift shop. Dr. Wilde’s World is an indoor, seasonal, interactive exhibit that resides at the junction of the zoo’s main pathways. The property includes a large lake, called Lake Iguana.

An air-conditioned monorail that loops around the zoo’s premises, provides both an aerial view of the zoo and a convenient way to move between sections.[13] The monorail has four stations; the first is in-between Asia and Australia, the second is located in the former, and the final two are in Africa.

Narrated tram rides and guided tours are given daily.  Print your Zoo Miami coupon here.  Click Here for directions.

  • "Big zoo, lots of areas"

    Reviewed 23 July 2017

    You can spend between 4-6 hours walking around, good maintenance. Enough amount of water stations around, pretty important with the weather down there.

  • "Living in Miami"

    Reviewed 20 July 2017

    We have visited the zoo a few times living in Miami and find it a bit pricy for a local attraction. I definitely recommend visiting during the winter months since summer and spring can be very hot...
