Miami Jungle Island - Miami attractions
Miami Jungle Island is a lush and tropical habitat for over 3,000 exotic animals including birds, monkeys, kangaroos, lemurs and flora. The Miami attractions jungle is located between downtown Miami and South Beach. Meet star residents of Miami Jungle Island, Hercules the 900-pound liger and Peanut and Pumpkin, the twin orangutans. Visit the Miami attractions petting zoo or sit and watch the extraordinary animal shows where you can see trainers dive into alligator-infested waters. You can observe exotic tigers from just a few feet away and watch one of our trainers feed one of the world’s hunting birds of prey and how it swallows a whole apple in just one gulp.
On the weekends, you can see Gator X-Treme, a spine-tingling presentation that brings man face-to-face with alligators both in the water and on dry land. Miami Jungle Island even has its own visitor-friendly private beach called La Playa. Adults can relax with a tropical drink in-hand underneath the shade of an umbrella while the kids play in the Miami attractions swim zone and water slides. You can have even more intimate encounters when embark on a VIP Safari Tour or you make reservations for private meetings with the animals such as the lemurs and penguins.
