  • 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.

  • This place has many types of wild animals, from lions to bears and even a nice baboon complex. You can definitely spend about 3 hours here with the kids. Look out for the long walks here, you would need to do a bit of climbing.

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.
