About
On Monday The 20.1.20 we will open for visitors at 13:30 The nursery opens at 8:30 Welcome to The Botanical Garden of Eilat (in the organic farm) On the northern border of the town of Eilat is hidden a spectacularly beautiful garden - the botanical garden of Eilat. The garden was created on a former military outpost and is built on stone terraces in ancient Biblical style. Inside the garden there are rare plants from all over the world, a reconstructed stream, waterfalls, enchanting walking tracks, signposting, seating areas, bird sanctuaries and its crowning glory, a rain forest. The rain forest is the first of its kind in the world! A cool and refreshing experience for all the family. Does it sound like the Garden of Eden? That's just what it's like. In the Park: Plant nursery, sales centre, herbal teas and organic coffee, ice lollies and more

Great visit to green in the dessert
Mar 2021
We had a nice walk through the gardens. There are signs describing the plants and trees. At the end we had coffee and ice cream. Recommended for a two hour visit.

A green oasis in the desert
Jan 2020 • Couples
The botanical garden offers a green oasis in the middle of the desert. A water stream runs in, building a mini-jungle around. The place offers many attractions for children and observation points to Eilat, Arava Valley and Aqaba surroundings.

Poorly managed
Dec 2019 • Family
I checked the website in the morning and was excited to go. I prepaid, got my young family and pregnant self on the bus, walked ten minutes uphill only to be told that they were randomly closed for an event. No indication online or for thought to call hotels, or any signage on the way that they were closed. We were told to come back at 3:30 even though it closes by 4. I am no longer interested in going.

הנו מתנצלים מעומק ליבנו על עוגמת הנפש והטעויות שעשינו. עקב אירוע פרטי שלא היה אמור להפריע למבקרים גלש בדקה ה90 וגרם לאי נוחות לאורחי האירוע ולמבקרי הגן ולכן גם לא עידכנו ברשתות ובערוצים הרלוונטים. בלב ברירה , נאלצנו לסגור שערים לשעתיים. אנחנו מתנצלים ומבטיחים שזה לא יקרה שוב

Great activity for people of all ages
Dec 2019 • Couples
We visited the botanical garden and found it totally delightful and informative. It is a great activity for the whole family including the walk through the “rain forest “ where it rains every 7 minutes. There may be at least one place where you need to go down a set of stairs so you should check with them if that is an issue. It was nice finding something different and out of the sun to do in Eilat.

Surprise in the desert
Oct 2019
Take a break from the hotels and make a point of wandering through these lovely botanical gardens. All manner of plants and trees have been carefully cultivated and you have to pinch yourself that you are actually in a desert! The walk is a meander through an area with an interesting history and an older bunker. A nursery provides plants for those who want to buy. Strange to stand at the top of the gardens and see the desert all around. Water features and clever growing techniques are explained and this represents a true little oasis.

green pleasant surprise during a hot July day in Eilat
Jul 2019 • Family
Very short drive from the center of Eilat. Perched up on an area of Eilat with clear views of the blue sky and the surrounding Eilat and the mountains in the distance. The plants were not only interesting but the the garden was full of sitting corners, little trails, and lookouts. The contrast between the hot July desert location of Eilat and this pleasant green bontanical garden made it especially nice.. In fact, just outside the botanic garden were the high sand dunes of Eilat .
One of the 3 men who created the garden was there and pointed out that without irritagation this attractive garden would quickly revert back to the original sand dunes

An unusual garden created and maintained by a few friends.
May 2019 • Couples
This garden is small and hidden in an industrial area of the city. There is a rain forest that has been created in one section. There is a waterfall that drops down into a pond. The most unusual part is a hidden tunnel that was actually a hiding area during a recent war. There are a number of good plant specimens. The garden has an amateurish quality in a way.
I am a traveller who searches for gardens all over and this is definitely an unusual place. I am happy that I visited!

Definitely worth a visit
Jun 2019 • Family
We came for a visit after a weekend at a hotel and were very happy we came. Amazing to see what they’ve created in the harshest local environment. The garden has a very wide variety of plants and trees from around the world, and they’ve built really creative garden furniture which are found throughout the place. Even our cynical teenagers loved the place, which is a tough test to pass...

A small but quirky - in a nice way - botanical garden with interesting and unusual exhibits including various wood sculptures. There is also a good elevated view of Eilat.
