    Special Zoo. "Sew" the Zoo all parts in order not to lose. Grounds shaded rest areas and many services. There is also a play area and petting zoo for little kids. It is recommended that you devote at least three hours with the kids and enjoy inferior and learn. The gene spans a large area and a reduction in steps or paved road. Of course it is quite bhazor steep road. Worth.

    We came for a visit in mid-July before the entire Libya hit our noses smell worse or less, but a foul smell. Some of the cages was only one animal (not just snakes and stuff it was clear why) and it seemed sad. Also examine the shadow part of the Zoo with large cages wasn't enough. Prehistoric Museum has not been tampered with in 30 years, so it's outdated and not so predictable, disappointing and sticky experiences there. In general the feeling very neglected, not invested particularly sad! Not worth a visit.

    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.

    Nice educational zoo, bring good footwear - there are a lot of stairs and moderate hill climbing.

    Very nice place to go with young kids, right in the center of the Carmel.

Where to stay in Haifa

Look in the German Colony district close to the port to find the main bulk of the accommodations in Haifa. With its proximity to many of the urban attractions, this area has become a modern tourism hot spot. Here, you'll discover a rich mix of luxury hotels and boutiques set in well-maintained old blocks, as well as particularly budget-friendly options such as guesthouses. Alternatively, the coastline provides plenty of upmarket hotels in the more developed neighborhoods, and a scattering of guesthouses and resorts close to the sandy beaches.
