Update: As of July 3, Zoo Miami has re-closed, and will remain closed indefinitely.
Zoo Miami is open and welcoming visitors again!
The popular zoo is taking extra precautions – having all employees wear face coverings and implementing one-way pathways where necessary. Visitors also must also wear face masks. Additionally, hand-sanitizing stations have been placed throughout the zoo.
In order to keep crowds to a manageable size, zoo members must make reservations online and nonmembers must purchase tickets online. NOTE: Groups of more than 10 people are not allowed.

Here’s a refresher of what you can see at the zoo!
- Florida Mission: Everglades: Featuring almost 60 species of animals found in the Everglades, such as roseate spoonbills, alligators, crocodiles and turtles.
- Wings of Asian Aviary: Waterfalls, tree-covered paths and a dino dig are the habitat for nearly 85 species of free-flying birds.
- Amazon & Beyond: Central and South America come alive in the 27-acre exhibit where you can see more than 100 species found in those regions. Jaguars, anacondas, eagles and river otters await!
Aside from these exhibit areas, come stroll through and see colorful amphibians, giraffes (even though you can’t feed them), tigers and lions lounging in their open-air habitat, several varieties of monkeys swinging from trees, hippos and otters keeping cool in the water, elephants roaming and all kinds of snakes and other colorful reptiles.
It’s a lot to see and – although the monorail is closed – safari cycles are still available for rent, a good option if you’d like to cover the grounds thoroughly. You can bring a water bottle from home and refill it at stations throughout the zoo.
