  • Nice Zoo, but is not intended for the transport of handicapped persons and baby-carriages, and so is very interesting. Need to descend from the top down. A lot of interesting animals.

  • The zoo is built in a natural forest, on the slopes of the Carmel Mt. - quite a lot of uphill, but worth the effort. Hidden gems are everywhere :)  more »
  • Good Zoo, there are many kinds of different animals. This is of course not Safari, but children, and adults, would be interesting. You need to bear in mind that the Zoo is built in such a way that there is a large slope while walking, long first down and back-long top.

  • A small, but surprisingly nice zoo in the heart of Haifa. Great for the kids. Be prepared for steep climbs (as in most of the city)
  • Love this zoo! You could spent most of the day just walking through the place and watching various animals and birds.
  • Very nice place to go with young kids, right in the center of the Carmel.
  • Nice educational zoo, bring good footwear - there are a lot of stairs and moderate hill climbing.
  • Surprising good zoo in the middle of Haifa. Lots of different animals. Pretty hard to cover everything in one visit. The downside is that it's built on a hill which means that when you're done you're exhausted, especially if you're carrying children...
