Overview

Welcome to The Botanical Garden of Eilat (in the organic farm) On the northern border of the town of Eilat is hidden a spectacularly beautiful garden - the botanical garden of Eilat. The garden was created on a former military outpost and is built on stone terraces in ancient Biblical style. Inside the garden there are rare plants from all over the world, a reconstructed stream, waterfalls, enchanting walking tracks, signposting, seating areas, bird sanctuaries and its crowning glory, a rain forest. The rain forest is the first of its kind in the world! A cool and refreshing experience for all the family. Does it sound like the Garden of Eden? That's just what it's like. In the Park: Plant nursery, sales centre, herbal teas and organic coffee, ice lollies and more

Well worth a visit. We loved it. Very special place with nice calm atmosphere. A little magic in the desert.

Hard to believe that such unique garden can even exist in the desert and heat of Eilat. There is a lot of what to see here - plants from all over the world, small streams and waterfall and a rain forest which looks very artificial,...More

The garden was nice and surprisingly attractive regarding the area. The local bus does not stop there and you have to walk back a lot from the nearest bus stop. I would suggest to arrange a bus stop at the end of the road. The...More

A beautiful garden with secret corners, the most amazing being the tropical forest. In the arid climate of Eilat, that's a wonder. Full of colors, birds, rare plants even... And a nice shop with aromatic plants, flowers and designed items. Nice spot on Earth!

I was little skeptical about this place, because what plants can grow in the desert? The feeling was enhanced by the fact, that you can't enter with food - you need to unload it in the reception. What followed was, however, so chamring, that I...More
