Absolutely loved this zoo. It has a fantastic Kangaroo exhibit where you get up close. The Rhinoceros area makes you feel like you could practically touch the animals. I went when it was cool so bring a jacket...can be windy! I imagine it must be absolutely beautiful in the spring and summer.

So many animals and rare ones too. We saw anything you'd see in any other country, though with a special verse attached to it!

By far one of the most beautiful zoos I've ever been too. All the areas for the animals are built into the mountains and landscape...a great trip for adults and kids.

Very nice to go with children, lots of animals to see and to learn. Entrance fee is expensive, especially for a family (about 40 NIS per child and 50 per adult)

I was pleasantly surprised when visited biblical zoo in September 2014. It is very spacious, clean zoo that can beat even London zoo. I was very happy to see that all animals are fed by quality fruits, even mice were fed with freshly chopped fruit salad. Areas for animals are spacious in comparison to other world zoos. Every animal section... More
