- Bug spray and hand sanitizer
- Children 2 years of age and under get free admission
Please note that the animals available for interaction vary based on their health and character at the time of the encounter. Our animal friends can sometimes be moody too! Thank you for your understanding.
Children under the age of 2 are free. Please be sure to wear comfortable clothing and footwear. Guests may not wear jewelry for the safety of the animals. Animal interactions vary based on health of the animal, and interactions may vary at any time. Bring water and your camera. Hands-on animal interactions are not recommended for children under 8 years of age. The rest of the tour is fun for all ages.

Karina was a great tour guide and very informative. The experience with the animals was amazing as well. You should make the otter and monkey part of the general tour so everyone can have access to them at a lower price.
We had a wonderful tour guide who was knowledgeable and friendly. The animals were beautiful and you could tell they were kept clean and well taken care of. The ability to touch animals like an armadillo, an otter, a monkey, and more was just incredible. The whole family had a great time.
Enjoyed the hands on visit. Our guide was very knowledgeable and although the tour was an hour did not feel rushed through exhibits.
This place is Amazing and beautifull! I love animals and I am extremely gratefull to those who save them and provide them with a safe place to live. The one on one experiences are superb, the staff is super knowledgeable and friendly. Clean, organized and with a big heart. Go with the whole family! Your money is used in a good way! The experience is humbling for kids and adults alike.
excellent tour leader, great knowledge, variety of animals, allowed to feed animals
Very intimate zoo experience one like no other staff was extremely friendly
It was fun for all of us. The tour guide was very knowledgable and fun to be around
Absolutely wonderful experience. The added Christmas special encounters with the baby spider monkey and baby otter were a great added touch!
Thank you SO much for giving me one of the most amazing days in recent memory! I've been following ZWF on social media for several years and was so excited to finally be able to plan a trip to see your beautiful animals. Gabe, our tour guide, was perfect. I can't wait to return!!!
It was a wonderful day. Guide was very knowledgeable an friendly. The group was a bit big but it was Xmas week. Take friends an family. You won’t regret it
ZWF Miami is a hidden jewel. I love visiting! And, I especially love bringing new people who are always amazed.
Our tour guide did a great job. It was an amazing experience. We loved how laid back it was and we didn't feel rushed. Wish the chimp was a bit more accessible. We simply couldn't afford $350 for two minutes although I understand the reasoning behind it. Keep doing what you are doing. The world needs its beautiful animals protected and loved. Thank you!!
Our tour guide was fabulous!
This was the best ‘zoo’ experience we’ve ever had! It is evident how well the animals at ZWF are looked after. They all look so peaceful in their enclosures. My children & I felt that the price of admission for the General Wildlife Tour was well worth it as we were able to HOLD some very special animals at the end of the 1-hour tour!! Highlights would be the monkeys, lions, tarantula, and baby otter & baby monkey. The gorgeous owl was unforgettable too. Awesome experience and so much better than what you get to see at a regular zoo.
Loved being able to see the animals up close and being fed by the guide.
Zoological Wildlife really blew me away!!!! The attention they had for my son was incredible. We will be returning next year, when my son is older to do an encounter!!!!! Thank you for making his Christmas gift so special!!!!!!!
Loved all of the animals
Best "zoo" I have ever been to. And love the up close and personal with the animals
Staff is absolutely amazing! The experience is one of a kind, and an animal lovers playground. I will be back again ASAP.
Staff was very welcoming and very well educated on the animals. My kids had a blast and we enjoyed every minute! Annabella was awesome .
Everyone was very helpful during my booking process and the tour was better then expected , I love this place and I’d recommend anyone who loves animals and wants a private insight to book with ZWF
Everyone was super friendly and the facility was very well maintained. Price was very high and it's really not a place for kids under 8
