About ZooMiami:

The whole family will delight in observing animals living in free-range environments similar to their natural habitats. Considered one of the best in the world, Miami's zoo has over 1,200 animals, which are divided into geographic areas including Asia, Africa, the Americas and Australia. Rent a Safari Cycle and you can move fast enough to see every animal from the cute koalas all the way to the elegant giraffes – which will eat leaves right out of your hand at the new Giraffe Feeding Station! Dont miss the Wings of Asia exhibit, featuring free-flying rare Asian birds.
