The elephant show very interesting. The zoo is a very clean place, relative to many visitors during the week.There are many species of animals in the zoo.You have an option to buy food & drinks in one of food stalls there, or bring them from home and make a picnic in the park. Also there are more then one WC in the zoo, clean enough to use them. Very affordable paths so they suitable for strollers. The price is reasonable also. Summary... very nice & recomended place for entertainment to all the family and friends of all ages.

this is like taking a trip on Noah's Ark. You can easily spend an entire day here and not be bored. The animals, the greenery, the birds, the penguins, the elephants and on and on and on. This is a wonderful family day!

The Biblical Zoo is a wonderful place to visit - beautiful sprawling grounds, perfect for photo ops and picnics. Even when it's full of visitors, it doesn't feel crowded. When you enter, they give you a list of the feedings and shows - we highly recommend the elephant show. It's also very inspiring that they do a lot of preserving, saving and rehabilitating animals. When visiting on a weekday, we recommend taking the train to the last stop and then walk back (otherwise it's a lot of uphill). (The train doesn't run on Shabbat and holidays.

Beautifully landscaped, plenty to see.I took my grandchildren there, and they really enjoyed it. Fascinating to see all of the animals mentioned in the bible that are there.

Set in a green valley the Zoo has many animals and birds, some mentioned in the Bible, others from afar.
A delightful place to take your children,
