Amazing experience! Everyone very knowledgeable and very nice. I would recommend this to everyone.
My wife and I had such a great time. This was an amazing experience.
I had a nice time, but I thought it was a bit pricey. I suppose that keeps out the rif-raf, but it still seems a bit pricey to me.
This was the second time we visited ZWF, being that my girlfriend is obsessed with anything animal related she absolutely loved the opportunity of being able to see Hank and the rest of the animals introduced to us for a second time. This time was particularly special because thanks to your Mother's Day promotion she was going to get the chance to take a picture with one of the Amur Leopards. We enjoyed getting to meet Alcide and being able to see Eva from afar. It was certainly an amazing experience. All the animals are well taken care of and the staff is very friendly. We look forward to going back!
Our tour guide was great, patient and very knowledgeable. Our son absolutely had an amazing time as well and was eager to play with the animals. We will definitely come back one day and refer to our friends and family.
The staff was very helpful, knowledgeable, likeable and enthusiastic...the animals were happy and interactive and my fiancee got to hold a monkey which something she has always wanted to do. Thank you guys for a great day!
This was the highlight of our Miami trip! We did the 1 hour general encounter. The first 45 minutes or so was a tram tour of the facility, where we got to feed monkeys and have a camel take a piece of carrot right from our mouth (great photo op)! During the last 15 minutes, we were taken to a hut where we were able to hold Capuchin monkeys, pet owls, and hold a baby alligator. If you are an animal lover, this is a great opportunity to get up close!
Most amazing day of my life our guide was so knowledgeable and accommodating. She was amazing and not all of the animals were amazing. The fact that I could interact with them was the highlight. Especially Chung amoretti Toby Russell and Angelika.
The guide was very knowledgeable about the animals and their history. It was easy to register and get checked in. Getting close to the animals was amazing!
It was amazing
The place its so wonderful and the staff attention was admirable.
We loved our tour guide who allowed us to have encounters with a variety of animals instead of restricting us due to the "tour limit." this was my second time and I took my mom for her birthday. She absolutely loved it. We hope Mario and the staff enjoy my mom's portrait of Nava!! See you next time!
My husband and I took our 2 nieces and nephew to ZWF not knowing what to expect. We all had a fabulous time with our guide, Jason, and all of the animals. We only went with the general tour not really knowing what to expect and now that we know we will be back for the many extensive tours offered. The staff was very accommodating and knowledgeable about all of the animals and Jason was fantastic with everyone, especially the kids. Thank you again and we will see you soon.
Jenesse was excellent!!! She was very thorough and knowledgable while explaining all of the animals. My cousin and I had a blast and loved meeting her monkey "brother"!!! We'll be back very soon!!!!
At all it was a great time in the ZWF. Some time more on the tour for looking animals would it make perfect.
My tour at ZWF was amazing! Our tourguide was so friendly and informative. I can't wait to go back!!! So fun and unique!
I wanted to provide my daughter with an amazing experience with wildlife that was not only fun but educational. I had the highest hopes that she would be able to see, pet, engage with a wolf and our expectations were met with the utmost professionalism. Although getting the tour actually started with a bit chaotic with groups arriving late and some disorganization, the tour was very informative, and our guide was friendly and welcoming. I would definitely recommend the General Wildlife Encounter to anyone wanting to engage with unique wildlife, that you would never be able to do ordinarily!
It was truelly a wonderfull experience! Thanks about that.
This was an amazing experience!! A dream come true!! I definitely recommend this as a must do if you're ever in the Miami area!!
Could not have been better! We enjoyed to see and touch the animals so much!
They people here take wonderful, loving care of their animals and also everyone that visits. We need more places like this that love their animals so much.
I was blessed to have the most amazing tour guide, Ally. The love and passion she has for her job and the animals is amazing. This is a place that is doing this not for the money but for the animals. You have to visit this place! & definitely try to get Ally as your guide.
My girls (ages 14 and 16) and I made reservations for the Wildlife Encounter based off of great reviews from Trip Advisor....this experience was the highlight of our vacation to Miami! We are animals lovers and this experience was a once in a lifetime experience! The animals we got to touch and hold were amazing! Our tour guide, Jason, was extremely friendly and knowledgeable and helped to make our visit incredible!
it was an awesome experience. Would like the lions,tigers to have more space to live.
I loved the general encounter, pricing is very fair for the amount of animals you get to see and interact with, however the encounters are a bit disappointing. The bear was not cooperating at all, and I basically paid $100 to watch her play with a toy- not really what I was thinking, since all of your photos have people picking her up and cuddling her- I would've liked to know she isn't able to do that anymore, before paying so much. The leopards didn't want to be bothered and I had to fight to just touch them.. just not worth what I paid
The guide was great - Andrea! The animals were clearly cared for and the habitats were natural looking.
Our guide was knowledgeable and very nice to all on the tour. She told us about the various animals that we saw and could call them over to the fence or edge of the cage, so she clearly knew them and related to them very well.
Very pro. Nice people. But The bottom is......why are those cages so small? How can almost any of those beautiful creatures being truly happy.... That's how a felt on my way out....
It was great to see all types of animals in a close encounter. It's a great job the foundation is doing!!
Amazing opportunity to see and spend time with beautiful and rare animals, great team work, thank you:)
The actual experiences were outstanding...we loved every minute of it. The reason for 4 stars vs. 5 stars is that the check-in process was a bit unclear and our tour started about 15 minutes late. So, there is room for improvement, but nothing too bad. The other reason is that when I booked our tour, it was not clear to me that we could have ordered more experiences, like doing something with liger cubs or snow leopards or something. My kids really wanted to do that...we were thinking of paying more to do that, but just decided to leave. Again, nothing major, but an area of improvement for your website or related processes. We have already recommended ZWF to friends. Thanks again!
Exceeded my expectation even without participating with an animal encounter at the end of the tour. Fantastic experience
The experience was exciting and I'd reccomend it to others visiting the Miami area. It was fun to feed the animals and see some close up. The tour guide was friendly and we lucked out. She made the tour enjoyable and fun!
Amazing place and it was so much fun. There isnt anywhere in South Florida that offers what ZWF offers! Cant wait to go back!!
The kids had a great day at the encounter. The girl that made our tour was very nice and she explained every animal very carefully. We all learned a lot that day.
- Please Note: 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.
