I had been many years ago and had good memories so decided to spend my last morning here and was not disappointed. It has only got better in the intervening years, many more interactive exhibits and so many animals who seem to be active for much of the time. Some of them are animals you don't usually get to see like kangaroos.

My wife and I took our grandchildren here while our children visited Yad Vashem. The weather was wonderful for a December day in Jerusalem which contributed to the our visit. There were numerous exhibits to keep the kids entertained for several hours. The kids enjoyed seeing the array of both large and small animals. Some of them coexisted in a central park. Our biggest challenge was finding staff to help us navigate through the park and recognize that most of the path was uphill where where the guidebooks indicated there was food to eat and an information booth. When we got to "Noah's Ark," the supposed place of food and information, there was neither. Fortunately some locals told us that a tram would come every ? minutes to take us down off the "mountain." The only food available was pizza and pre-made sandwiches of unknown content. Knowing this in advance would have made the trip more enjoyable. It is an excellent place to picnic with families who obviously brought their own food.

Don't miss this wonderful zoo in Jerusalem, A short taxi ride to Beit Vegan and u will enter an enchanted place full of happy animals and children, They have n amazing selection of animals in wonderful habitats. Elephants, monkeys, kangaroos, otters, flamingos, peacocks, goats, sheep,and even penguins just to name a few of the animals we saw. They also have a Child's play area and petting zoo. Lots of places to go thru and discover and explore, It is a real good snapshot of Jerusalem. And all it's residents, Arabs and Jews wandering around and enjoying the animals. Be sure and use sun screen and bring plenty of water and snacks for the kids, they have snacks to buy but only at the entrance and you dont want to go back there once you are wondering around,

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.
