Monkeys, especially free in nature, are not a common view in Israel. In fact, you can't see them at all in Israel free except in the Monkey Forest in Yodfat. Yodfat is the ancient Hebrew name of the last strongholds of the Jewish rebellion against...More

it is nicely done, very simple, nice to see the animals roaming free, well not all of them, but it can be very nice for kids and also for adults, if you are there in Yodfat, go ahead and visit it.

Excellent adventure for the kids! Monkeys hopping right beside you, taking food and sometimes scurrying on your shoulders to get that treat. Our children were very excited.

This is not a huge zoo where animals are just displayed for the amusement of people, but a place where the welfare of the animals has high priority and where we can be close to the animals. From looking at the enclosures it becomes clear...More
