Naples Zoo is located in a magnificent tropical garden planted in 1919, many years before the animals came to the establishment. Today, you can stroll along the paved path for almost a mile past 70 species of rare and beautiful animals that live surrounded by exotic plants from their natural habitats. You will come close to everyone’s favorite creatures, including lions, giraffes, pythons, monkeys, and bears.
You will also get to admire some rare creatures not commonly seen such as an Asian meat-eating and barking deer or the fosas of Madagascar. You can board a catamaran that will take you to the monkey island located in the artificial lake, where primates live their noisy lives. 1590 Goodlette-Frank Road, Naples, Florida 34102, 239-262-5409
