Uncover Other Thrilling Attractions at Zoo Miami

Zoo Miami, also known as Miami-Dade Zoological Park and Gardens, is home to 3,000 animals and dozens of attractions. Depending on your tickets, you can play with river otters, ride the wildlife carousel, or even experience camping.

For a truly wonderful safari experience, make sure to try all the exhibits and activities, including the following:

Florida: Mission Everglades

Like Miami SeaQuarium, Florida Mission Everglades urges guests to gain a deeper understanding of environmental and preservation efforts. The exhibit also aims to bring you closer to the Everglades and widen your knowledge of various animal species.

Start the learning by strolling through the habitats of known Florida creatures, like the black bear, gopher tortoise, burrowing owl, American crocodile, bald eagle, American alligator, and more.


Conservation Action Center

After celebrating at the annual Feast with the Beasts, be sure to check out the gigantic python, learn some cool facts about turtles and polar bears, and meet some of Miami Dade’s most wanted species.

Wings of Asia Aviary

Marvel at 400 animals – including nearly 85 species of spectacular, exotic, and free-flying Asian birds at this open air exhibit.

Afterward, stroll through tree-covered paths with the sound of relaxing waterfalls in the background, or travel on tram tours. You’ll feel as if you’re actually in Asia, wandering around the birds’ natural habitats – without even leaving the United States.

Experience Feast with the Beast Zoo Miami

In celebration of its 26th anniversary, the annual Feast of the Beast at Miami Zoo is making a triumphant return after a one year hiatus.

This attraction will once again feature educational animal shows, where visitors can deepen their understanding of the animal kingdom. There will be well-curated games and contests for everyone to join in. And of course, an inspiring menu that mirrors the wild theme at the fair.

As a cherry on top, the guests have the privilege to enjoy an enticing pre-party featuring some of the park’s remarkable residents, setting the mood for a memorable adventure to come.
So, get your tickets now to load up on a variety of safari experiences and support Zoo Miami’s conservation works at the same time. While you’re at it, extend your visit with a Zoo Miami vacation package!
