“the best zoo in the world”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

We drove here from the old city of Jerusalem ( an easy 15min drive) and there was plenty of free parking. The grounds are clean and very well maintained. The animals have very large areas to roam freely and they look extremely healthy. The monkeys are really fun to watch. The roads are lined with water fountains and there are fans blowing water mist everywhere. The attendants are very polite and helpful. There is a truck that looks like a railroad train that runs the whole park area. Also the model of Noah's Ark is fabulous. Fun, Fun., Lots of shade and benches. Would love to go back.

“Biblical Zoo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

One of the nicest places to visit. They have almost every animal mentioned in the Bible. The grounds are beautiful and if you come at feeding time the show is great.

“Excellent place to wind off with a family”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

Simply remarkable. A new kind of zoo where people are restrained and the animals are reasonably free to roam about. Very informative too with plenty of signs in three languages.
