It was ok. Not a must do but worth a look. Cool that they can grow all that in a place like this. A few of the facts around the garden weren't fully correct but still nice.

It was nice, not a big deal, if you can't visit that place, is not a huge loss. But is you have time, it is worth a trip.

amazing botanical garden in the negev desert, with even a small " rainforest" , wooden handmade benches and sculptures, a liitle coffeeplace , with the best coffee in town and a very well equipped shop for all your garden utensils, plants and flowers .

These gardens are an oasis of calm and tranquility in the dry, dusty desert. Each turn of the path presented another surprise including a waterfall and spectacular lookout points. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and highly recommend it.

This is a small spot, not frequented by visitors. The place looks like it was built by the same guys from the Dolphin Reef. Entrance is not expensive, and the place is relaxed and feels like an oasis in the desert. Recommended if you want to spend an hours or so out of the crowded beaches

The last thing you expect to see in the desert, next to Eilat, is the Botanical Garden! Located in the entrance to the city, behind a gas station (just follow the signs), you enter an unbelievable world of vegetation, with all kinds of trees and bushes and even a rain forest (that's get sprayed every 10 minutes - enjoy the...

A different experience in desert - like conditions. Includes rainforest and waterfall providing some respite from the heat. Regular places to sit in the shade. Interesting to read about different plants, aetiology and uses. Plenty of things for kids to climb on and look at. We took a fairly light buggy but struggled in a few places where it was... More

A friend who had been in Eilat the previous month sent me a message recommending we take the time to visit this garden. A little piece of Eden. I would add a picture but mine look just like those posted. I did not know about this garden but I am glad I went to see it. The statuary is also... More
