Jungle Island – A South Florida Landmark Attraction
Jungle Island, a favorite South Florida landmark, is an intimate zoological park located in the heart of Miami, between downtown Miami and South Beach. Building upon a rich tradition that began in 1936, Jungle Island is home to some of the world’s rarest and most exotic animals. You can enjoy engaging animal shows and informative exhibits while strolling by streams and waterfalls under a lush canopy of tropical trees. Also, you can choose to participate in hands-on interactions with fascinating animals or go on guided behind-the-scenes Lemur tours. Jungle Island enriches the lives of park visitors through immersive, real-life jungle experiences centered on adventure, animals, discovery and play.
