Everything you need to know about visiting Jungle Island (1111 Parrot Jungle Trail, Miami).

Jungle Island is a perfect pit stop for any family going to or coming from Miami Beach. This long-running Miami attraction (it was founded in 1936) gives patrons a chance to experience up-close encounters with exotic animals, immersive exhibitions and VIP tours. Jungle Island offers a home for your next birthday party or field trip. 

The animals at Jungle Island

Jungle Island has some of the cutest creatures on this planet. On your trip there, you can see some absolutely adorable primates, including baboons, gibbons, lemurs, squirrel monkeys, orangutans, marmosets and the insanely cute white-faced capuchin. There are also llamas, pigs, goats, kangaroos, warthogs and much more.

Animal interactions

One of the coolest parts of Jungle Island is getting the opportunity to interact with some of the animals. For $29.95–$39.95 you can book a session to hang out with sloths or lemurs. You’ll get the chance to hold and play with these adorable animals as you learn about their biology and eating habits. Sloth selfies are encouraged as well.

The upcoming Jungle Island renovation

In the next two years, Jungle Island will undergo an insane $60 million renovation that will turn the space into an awesome hybrid of a zoo and a theme park. The new Jungle Island will feature 14-story zip lines, water slides, a lagoon, a beach club, new restaurants and more animals. The computer renderings that have been released so far show a nearly unrecognizable Jungle Island, and we can’t wait.
