Sep 11, 2013 - Up Close and Personal with Nature at Jungle Island

Are you looking for a place to bring your family out for some fun? How about a trip to the Jungle Island at 1111 Parrot Jungle Trail, Miami? Heard of it but have never been there yet? Well, then it is about time that you rent a Miami bus and load everyone onto the bus and head on down to the Jungle Island for a day’s of fun and thrills.

In comparison to the Miami’s Metrozoo, the Everglades habitat at Jungle Island may be smaller, but it is rather nice. The Jungle Island also have a lot of shady areas with new buildings and exhibits, so be sure to be comfortable dressed and wear comfortable walking shoes, as the grounds to cover are rather huge too. If you think your kids may enjoy the inflatable slide at the Jungle Island, be sure to call them up first to find out if the slide would be operating, so that you can bring a spare change of clothes if they have their wet slide available on the day of your visit. Or, if you prefer to take the risk, you can always bring along the change of clothes and leave the bag in the Miami rental bus if you don’t need them.

When you make plans to visit the Jungle Island, always give yourself at least 2 to 4 hours to spend there so that you don’t have to rush through the trip with your family. Instead, with so much time in your hands, you get to enjoy yourselves in there without worrying about having to leave so soon. At this zoo, they also have many interactive experiences with the animals for visitors. If you have never been able to get up close to a kangaroo to touch and feed it, well, you can get to do that here in Jungle Island. We would suggest that you make plans to arrive at the Jungle Island early so that you can beat the heat or the afternoon thunderstorms. You can always let the Miami bus rental company know that you prefer to arrive early and they will make arrangements to accommodate to your request. You are allowed to take photographs as you tour around the zoo, so do remember to bring your camera along with you on this trip so that you can snap away and bring home a lot of beautiful memories from this trip with your family.
