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

we love the place and we go there often especially in winter when it's no so hot. it has a great view of Eilat. one must remember it's a desert here so it's different than other botanical gardens though it does have a rain forest. there is a good nursery on the place too. you can spend hours there. must...

Even though our hostel receptionist told us that the garden was nothing special (she compared it to European gardens), we really liked it. It is well maintained and very quiet and peaceful. You should go with a cab because it's quite far off and no bus route leads there. Cab should be something about 20 shekel from the city center.... More

we visited this place last week (feb, 2015). it is very worthwhile. it is the product of a small group of fellows who have put together a very impressive product of plants and environments from around the world. i could not believe how much work they put into this- a real labor of love but retains a "homey" feeling. it...

Blossoming, carefully planned botanical gardens with plants from all over the world. There were many quiet places to sit and observe the beautiful views, waterfalls, fruit trees. the most spectacular attraction is the lush rainforest, where a mist waters the plants every ten minutes. Truly a taste of the Garden of Eden and an oasis in the middle of the... More

The Botanical garden is a must for anyone interested in gardening. The garden is run entirely organically - no fertilizer, no insectides, no herbicides. How can they do it. Simple ... they are in the desert. There are no weeds or insects. The place is amazing, in that the owners took a few adjacent arroyos, lined the sides with natural... More

A rain forest in the middle of the desert. How awesome is that? On Shabat we walked there from the Hilton (4 kilometers) and back, AND IT WAS WORTH EVERY STEP!
