A very good zoo park with lots of handling opportunities. We enhanced our day with a private lemur handling experience, complete with photos and video, which we felt was worth the extra cost. We also bought a photo key, entitling us to copies of all the other pictures of our group that were taken by the park staff that day.
Great day got up close and personal with many creatures. Only 10 min drive from south beach. The lemur experience was well worth it we were the only ones in the room and had plenty of time for cuddles, highly recommend!
Great place to go with kids. Really enjoyed it. Paid for lemur experience as extra, very good.
This place was amazing! We got the Lemur experience and we were there just the two of us. The lemurs were so cute and they were climbing all over us and we got to hold a baby lemur...she was so cute! Also the birds around the park are amazing. I would go here again!
Meeting the Lemurs was fantastic! Such amazing animals, and such an incredible and unique opportunity to get up close and personal with black and white ruffed lemurs (critically endangered) and red ruffed lemurs (endangered). Take a hair brush with you for afterwards - they love to sit on your head! You also get to spend a nice amount of time with them. Jungle Island is very interactive, and the bird show is lots of fun. Be sure to check out the Liger - amazing! We were lucky enough to see two newly hatched Flamingo chicks. All in all a really fun day with lots going on.
This was one of the coolest things I have EVER done! The Lemurs are so friendly and lovable that I wanted to spend the whole day playing with them.
I loved feeding the penguins and being able to pet them, surprisingly they are very soft. The experience was very unique and memorable.
Jungle Island was a nice park with a lot of different animals to enjoy. The highlight was playing with the Lemurs. I'm so glad I paid the extra to do it as it was SO worth it! This is truly one of the best experiences I have had in all my traveling days. Our instructor was inredible and so passionate. I also got to feed the penguins which was also a load of fun, and definitely something you only get to do once in your life!
The Lemur experience was well worth it but you don't have to book it here. You can do it right at Jungle Island but does help with if they are busy.
Loved jungle Island and the bird show is a must! We paid extra for the Lemur experience and it was well worth the money.
It was a very nice, they had different animals and you could take pictures with all of them. The shuttle service there was on time and fast. They had different animal shows available throughout the day. I recommend this for anyone who has a morning to spare.
Highlight of this was definately the lemur activity. Had a full 45 minutes with the lemurs, they are really used to people and will climb all over you. Got some great photos and keeper was informative, friendly and helpful. Jungle Island itself was smaller than I expected better for younger children but this does mean you can see all threee shows easily and make sure you have plenty of quarters as there are quite a few opportunities to feed the animals. Not many food options for but free transport was a real benefit.
The tour is good. Admission at the gate is same as Viator price. I was told by one of the Viator agents that the price is cheaper if I book through Viator It would have been nice if the transportation was included in the tour with some charge.
jungle island is small and cute, clean, (which i appreciated) i also appreciated the free pick up and return from our hotel in Miami! thank you!
the most exciting part was the liger however i expected to see more animals and it was a bit limited in that overall
Beautiful birds, however, other animals had small enclosures. was a bit sad to see them like that
Using Viator to pay in advance was a waste of time. The purpose of buying the tickets ahead of time thru Viator was supposedly so I would not have to stand in line for a ticket. So I went straight to the entrance, stood in line, and when I got to the entrance I was told to get a ticket. Never again
