Throughout history, camels have been instrumental partners in man kinds travels. Explorers traversed thousands of miles of desert throughout Asia and Africa, discovering new lands and experiencing all the world has to offer alongside these majestic creatures. At Zoo Miami’s Camel Encounter, located in Zoo Miami’s Children’s Zoo, you too can experience the same excitement face to face! Open daily from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., you and your guests can feed and interact with these majestic animals and speak to our trained zoo keepers, creating a memory that will last a lifetime!
