About this Miami tour
Spend your day hanging out with a liger, (a lion/tiger hybrid) twin orangutans and a host of other kooky animal characters on Miami’s Jungle Island. The natural surroundings of Miami is home to some of the world's most interesting and unique wildlife, and you'll get to see it all, as well as tropical and exotic mammals at the city's premier animal sanctuary.
Begin with a tour of the facilities, including visits with some of the facility's most famous residents. Mama Cass is the world's only trained Cassowary, a rare flightless bird native to New Zealand, Australia and Papua New Guinea. They are one of the oddest and most endearing looking animals in the world. After you've visited the park's resident diva, stop by and see Peanut and Pumpkin, Orangutan twins that call the island home. Jungle Island's creatures are lovingly cared for, and because of that, many of them are people friendly. Regular shows and events will put you up close and personal with some of the Island's biggest entertainers!
Once you've toured the facility and gotten your fill of exotic birds and animals, be sure to stop by the private beach, where you are encouraged to lounge and take in the beauty of the natural surroundings. You will feel like you've been transported into a different world when you step onto the secluded beach. Quiet and tranquil, it is the perfect way to end your day of animal adventures!
Before you leave, don't forget to visit the resident Liger, a tiger lion mix who holds the record as one of the biggest cats ever recorded in captivity. Your time on Jungle Island may be brief, but the memories you make here will last forever.
What is a Liger?
Legend has it that once upon a time ligers existed in the wild, but as the two big cats’ habitats were spread apart by industrialization the odd hybrid fell out of existence, that is until a lion and tiger were successfully mated in captivity. The rare cat is the largest big cat in the world, growing larger than both of its parents. They only exist in captivity, and while they retain the general look of a lion, they sport the agility of the fierce tiger.
