Have you always wanted to…

Swap some hugs with a capuchin monkey?
Give a wolf a belly rub?
Get licked by an anteater?
Have wanted to experience an armadillo roll up in your hand?

…then look no further! At the Zoological Wildlife Foundation (ZWF), the most intimate, hands-on zoo in Miami, all of those dreams can come true in a single visit. At ZWF every visitor gets up close and personal with our animals – an opportunity you won’t easily find at other Florida zoos.

Our Zoo in Miami, Florida takes excellent care of its animals, and its guests

There’s nothing that thrills our team more than keeping our animals happy and healthy, which means that each tour leader has extensive knowledge that they love to share.

If you’ve ever wondered what big cats eat, how a zoo keeps its animals from getting bored, or what a toucan’s favorite snack is, our experienced tour guides are the perfect people to ask.

They’ll even make you feel comfortable enough to cuddle with a snake! That’s because our Miami zoo only focuses on individualized encounters, and every guest becomes a part of our animal-loving family.

Get up close and personal with amazing wildlife at South Florida’s best zoo

When you book a private tour with ZWF, it’ll feel like you’re visiting a close friend’s private animal sanctuary, right in the heart of Miami. Each and every wildlife excursion is booked in advance, so you’ll have an experience that’s educational, intimate, and uniquely yours… without the overcrowding you’ll find at “normal” zoos in Miami.

ZWF’s tours aren’t like your average zoo tours – they’re exciting encounters with exotic animals

If you’re ready to spend some one-on-one time with a bobcat, capuchin monkey, and everything in between, check out our tour options and contact us to schedule a visit! Just be sure to charge your camera before heading out, because this is an experience you’ll want to remember forever.
