Please note Temporary Hours of Operation from August 12 - September 30, the Zoo will be open from 8:00 AM - 3:00 PM and  the giraffe feeding station will be open daily from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm. The early openings and closings will apply to all areas of the Zoo and botanical garden, including the animal habitats, playground, gift shop, Café Roar, and Lakeside Café.

In Naples Zoo, you'll find exotic animals surrounded by the mature trees and exotic plants of a historic tropical garden founded in 1919. As the botanical collection was planted fifty years before the animals were introduced, the exhibits carefully maximize the space around decades old trees. Because of this special need to conserve space, you will be very close to the animals -- often just three or four steps away!

Naples Zoo's upgraded giraffe feeding platform and viewing area is NOW OPEN! We can't wait for you to get face to face with the world's tallest animal.
