One of the most interesting zoo's in the world. Is shows the animals of Israel and the region but also animals from Africa and australia. Highly recomeded for families with young children.

Very well thought out zoo
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed on August 13, 2017

i always thought a zoo was a zoo. But the Jerusalem zoo is in relatively new quarters and is superbly well laid out. It is expensive (including the need for a taxi as it is not near most hotels) Our grandchildren loved it.

Wonderful.

Great place to visit but take good walking shoes. Lots of animals, great to visit early in the morning or late in the afternoon when the temperature is cooler. Do not enter the petting zoo with food or you will be swarmed by dozens of hungry goats.

Nice Zoo, something to do on a Saturday when everything else is closed

This was a nice place to go on a Saturday when almost everything is closed in Jerusalem. They have several options of touring the grounds when you enter. You can choose a route that takes 1 hour, 2 hours or more than 2 hours. The exhibits were nice and well kept. I went in the middle of the day, I would suggest going early in the day before the heat really sets in. Since the buses do not run on Saturdays, if you do not have a car, you will need to take a taxi.

Lovely Zoo, Fun for Kids, Surprising Animals

Nice zoo. I’m glad we went, but I wouldn’t have included it if we didn’t have so many days in Jerusalem with kids (4, 6 and 12). After four days touring the Old City and such, this was a nice break for our crew. It feels small, with all the exhibits pretty close but also...

Nice zoo. I’m glad we went, but I wouldn’t have included it if we didn’t have so many days in Jerusalem with kids (4, 6 and 12). After four days touring the Old City and such, this was a nice break for our crew. It feels small, with all the exhibits pretty close but also super natural and park-like. Not a lot of the infrastructure—snack bars, gift shops, etc.—that make American zoos feel like theme parks. So that's a big plus. This is a simple and satisfying and pretty surprising place to visit. We loved the penguins, the small animal room (so creepy and also so cute), the Syrian brown bears, and the African safari walk. The “biblical” aspect of this place wasn’t very obvious. There are quotes on the placards from the Torah, related to the animals, but then it’s not just creatures from scripture. There a penguins here. Also, either eat as you come or go or bring your own food. Once you’re past the entrance plaza, food options are scarce (the two other snack bars were closed for the day by the afternoon). Also, there's a rather sizable playground in the middle of the zoo. Not enough places in the world have sizable playgrounds, and we were excited to find one here. Fun times.
