Wonderful zoo, lots of animals, great and humane habitats. There are benches and trees for shade everywhere. There is a "train" going around the zoo, so you can take it instead of walking. Overall a great experience, much better than at the Safari in Ramat-Gan...More

We were able to see the entire zoo in 2 hours which was perfect on a very hot day. A pleasant surprise to find so many interesting animals in a relatively small zoo. Beautiful grounds. Loved the elephant show and the bears posing for pictures.

As you may see from my other reviews, I'm a zoo person. I visit the local zoo whenever I travel. The Biblical Zoo impressed me with its flow; it's a simple loop, but is big enough and varied enough that you don't feel like you're...More

My entire family enjoyed our visit to the zoo yesterday. It is shady and very pleasant to walk around. Unlike other zoos, where it is hard to see the animals, all of the animals were clearly visible. There is a big playground in the zoo...More
