NAPLES ZOO and BOTANICAL GARDENS
If you are ever in the Naples area, do not miss a visit to this wonderful zoo; awonderful opportunity to see animals in their natural habitat and glorious historic gardens
There are several good shows during the day. I recommend that you sit down with the schedule when you arrive and plan your day. Some shows are only once a day so you do not want to miss anything.
PLANET PREDATOR Lots of exotic cats (live and on film) held in Safari Canyon TOP TIP arrive a little early for some bonus fun trivia
ALLIGATOR BAY just what it says on the can. Alligator spotting and lots of fascinating facts. You may even get to stroke a baby (I did! )
BOTANICAL TOUR a chance to see these wonderful historic gardens. Bunya Bunya trees from Australia and Travellers Trees from Madagascar are only 2 of the highlights. TOP TIP tour goes only once a day, so make a note of the time (lasts 30 minutes)
SERPENT SHOW tortoises, snakes and lizards are featured here. You can get really close up too!
MEET THE KEEPER held throughout the day this is a great chance for you to meet the people who look after the animals and can answer all your qustions
PRIMATE CRUISE this is truly memorable. The boat floats leisurely round the many islands, each of which houses a different primate group. Not to be missed
Prices are $9. 95 to $18. 50 though in common with most attractions, you can find discount coupons around the area (or we found a brochure in the paydesk area and ripped them out before entering) Children under 2 are free; under 16s must be accompanied by an adult
TOP TIP as with all animal experiences in hot countries arrive early; the anilas are at their liveliest before it gets too warm
Open every day except Christmas Day and Thanksgiving Located on the Goodlette Frank Rd it is easily accessible from Marco Island, Bonita Springs and of course Naples.
