The Botanical Garden in Eilat is no less than a miracle ! In this hot and dry city, the owners turned a former army base into a green, lovely garden with an artificial waterfall and a water steam. Trees, herbs, land and water vegetation from all around the world, flowering all around the year. The garden overlooks the entire city... More

A beautiful experience of nature in an extreme. Experience the history of nature as you meander around these trees and plants, including a tree grown from a 1200 year old seed! And in the middle of it all experience a real rain forest in the middle of the desert. A unique experience. Samples of history as you explore the old... More

just quietly enjoying much beauty. Specifically, the "rain forest" where there is real water mist in the air.

An amazing place. It may not be Kew Gardens but is a remarkable spot in the desert. The rain forest section is the highlight. One of the best places to visit when need a break from the direct sunshine (if one ever does)

No more the 1 hour to trevel inside the garden. It is a nice stope to walk a littel and have some view.

This was disappointing. It's kind of pricey and very little was in bloom. I would not recommend this at all. The paths are steep and a bit difficult to navigate for people who don't walk well. My mother had a hard time as there many stairs which are uneven.

This botanical garden was erected with good intentions but the maintenance is not good. A lot of neglect arount. But still worth a visit because of the thousands of plants from all over the world that are there

Imagine that you were driving for 2 hours in the desert and than you enter to an amazing garden with rain forest and water falls , i suggest you try their herbal tea.

I last visted this site two years ago and wasthrilled. It's amazing to find this green spot in the desert, and it's all a one man vision. You can see the personal investment in each bench and tree. You can also grab a coffee and enjoy the beauty, and also several watching spots over the city and surroundings from up... More

Nice place. Unusual for the desert. Feel ripped off. Took our money and then told us the day after was free. Do not think it is value for money but is very pretty and a nice break from the normal touristy things to do in Eilat.
