Fun afternoon

No, not all of the animals are mentioned in the Bible, but they are well tended, in nice surroundings. The "safari" section was especially nice. They are opening an aquarium soon.

Very nice zoo

I've been to the San Diego Zoo multiple times throughout my life and so have pretty high standards when it comes to zoos, and I was pleasantly surprised by this one. The animals looked like they were looked after well, and the layout is nice where everything is spread out. However, my one complaint is that whenever we were at an open animal encounter, there were SO MANY families that were throwing both food and bark at the animals. Both kids AND adults did this. There were signs everywhere that said do not feed the animals, but they were largely ignored, and there were no staff members anywhere to tell. It was very disheartening and sad to witness in so many areas. You could tell that the animals were really used to this behavior, because they were all at their edges of their pits waiting to be given something. Really sad.

A fun day with the family
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed on November 5, 2017

We enjoyed it very much. We walked for four hours with a one-and-a-half-year-old boy and we passed only half a park. The place is mostly shaded and comfortable with a trolley. A wonderful petting zoo and a large game of games. It's fun to spend a whole day there with the family.

We spent a pleasant afternoon here with my daughter and one year old grandson. The zoo is well laid out and well sign posted. We drove out but there appears to be goo rail & bus links out to the zoo as well. The majority of animals seem happy and well cared for. There are lots of look out points and glasses areas that allow you to safely get very close to the animals. I particularly enjoyed the zebras and giraffes. We visited in September when the temperatures were just right for strolling around and all the animals were outside. I don't think I could manage it in the higher temperatures of July & August. There is a kiosk at the entrance selling drinks, sandwiches and snacks but nothing open elsewhere in the zoo. I would recommend taking a picnic or some snacks and stopping half way round at one of the many picnic areas and enjoying a rest. There is also a large playground at the end. Definetly worth a visit.

This is one of our favorite zoos. The variety of animals is one of the best of anny zoo we have been to. The zoo is well laid out and the animals are in open air enclosures. There is even a small aquarium inside. The zoo is located about 10 minutes outside the city and is open on Saturdays, while much of Jerusalem is closed down.
