Imagine standing eye level with a giraffe, holding out your arm for parrots to land on, or touching the head of an endangered rhino. At Zoo Miami, these experiences happen every day, fulfilling the institution's mission of encouraging the conservation of wildlife. More than 3,000 animals—from chimps to tigers—populate the African, Asian, and Australian lobes of the zoo. Many of the individual exhibitions don't use cages, but are instead bound by moats throughout more than three miles of walking trails. This setup allows guests to get closer to animals as they romp in their habitats. More than 1,200 plant species populate these habitats, which are re-creations of the animals' native environments.
Guests can use free WiFi to download a free mobile app for iPhones and Androids. The app then delivers functions such as location beacons so that family members keep track of one another, show times, and GPS-enabled maps that show the nearest dining venue or restroom. Transportation options within the zoo range from an air-conditioned monorail to tram tours, which provide insights such as which animals have recently had babies, what they named the babies, and each baby's first word. Developed specifically for kids, a children's zoo offers camel rides and a playground.

“During rainy season, you should go early to the zoo (when it opens) so that by the time the rain starts, you should have been able to see just about everything. Also, I would recommend to get the multi person bike. It is costly especially on the weekends when the all day price is NOT in affect, but it is well worth it especially since the zoo is huge! Be prepared to have an amazing time!!!!”
“Bring comfortable shoes, because you'll be walking faster than the monorail moves”
“This groupon is a great value!”
