The zoo itself is gorgeous. Spread out , well cared for , clean , spectacular views and a real pleasure to walk around BUT the animals seem to me to be in very small enclosures. Huge parrots and birds that had no room to fly, lions that had no room to run. Fish in small aquariums,snakes in tiny spaces. Monkeys with limited swinging spaces. Bears in small enclosure etc etc etc. I wouldn't go back and I wouldn't recommend anyone to go.

If you are in Jerusalem and travel with kids that a place you must visit for several good hours. Dont miss it.

The Biblical zoo is one of my favorite places in Jerusalem. Matter of fact, I have a yearly subscription to it. You enter it and feel calm descend on you. There is an attempt to place the animals in natural settings and the plants and trees add alot. The only problems are that it is sometimes very crowded and that there is very little shade in most places. I solve these problems by coming on week days (not Fridays or Saturdays) and by seeking out the shaded areas. There is a cafe and a stand selling drinks, sandwiches and ice cream on the premises. There is also a store with souvenirs.

This is a lovely zoo. Pretty large. A monkey open island enclosure near the entrance is fun and often funny. Most animals are in large and open enclosures. Visit a cool indoor reptile section. Go watch the training of the elephants. Best visited during the cool morning hours or late in the afternoon...

This is a lovely zoo. Pretty large. A monkey open island enclosure near the entrance is fun and often funny. Most animals are in large and open enclosures. Visit a cool indoor reptile section. Go watch the training of the elephants. Best visited during the cool morning hours or late in the afternoon when the zoo is not crowded and the animals are not hiding in the shades. An aquarium is now being built and expected to open in 2018. When done with the zoo, from the parking area continue to drive on the unpaved part of the road and you will reach a cute place with small water pools that collect water from local springs. A great view and good place for picnics.

I've visited the biblical zoo many times, and each time the expirience was great. There is a wide variety of animals from all over the world, the enclosures are big and have a lot of room, and they all give a suitable environment for the animals. Some animals also get to sort of "free roam" in the zoo (never sure if the peacocks are supposed to be exhibits). The petting zoo and playground are also great places for young children if they want to play or meet some animals personally. Suitable for both groups of friends and families and also solo visits if you're an animal lover.
