Monkey Jungle


Today's garden destination is a little bit different.  It's Monkey Jungle, located in Miami, Florida.  This is a place where monkeys run free, and humans are enclosed in walkways.  There are over 400 primates here, most running free on nearly 30 acres. There are a total of 30 species represented, including gibbons, guenons, and spider monkeys.  Besides the monkeys (and you will see them - a troop of Java monkeys will greet you immediately!) , visitors can expect to see Amazonian rain forests and South American plants.


Monkey Jungle is open daily from 9:30 AM - 5:30 PM.  Cost of admission for adults is $29.95, and for children, $23.95.

  1. Expensive, but that's a great place for the primates. I wonder if they laugh at the humans behind the fence?

    1. You are a great photographer, so I'm sure you'd have a wonderful time taking pictures there. If you ever go, I'd love to see the pictures you take!

  4. just the name Monkey Jungle made me smile. I like the idea that we humans are enclosed - that's the way to go. Sounds like a very fun place

    1. It's kind of funny to have the tables turned.
