  • Came with her husband to the Zoo is not hoping to fall from delight, but this is what happened with us) mid-July, seemingly-peak tourist activity, but we were glad to be almost alone to walk along the pleasant hilly paths Zoo ... about each enclosure there are benches, many fountains with water, lush vegetation on site.

  • Small nice zoo for the price (38 shekels entry). Visit little do in one hour. But there are nice corners in the zoo to arise a time like for example the greenhouse to the Raptors. Feel free to take your time. The animals are quite varied (birds, lions, Tigers, bears, reptiles, monkeys, kangaroos, etc.) with a lot of species present in Israel (camels, jackals, etc.). On the other hand, you will see no large animals (giraffe, elephant, etc.). The zoo seems quite old but is fairly well maintained.
