Jerusalem Biblical Zoo


A family destination and Israel’s biggest tourist attraction, the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo covers over 62 acres of stunning terrain in the south of Jerusalem. The park centers on a vast man-made lake complete with waterfalls and side pools, surrounded by spacious lawns and shaded beauty spots. The park includes a wildlife savannah with free-roaming animals and a visitor’s train that provides transportation throughout the park with several stations along the route.
Over 170 diverse species of animals are here to be seen. And this being Jerusalem and the ‘Biblical’ zoo, most of these were mentioned in the Bible. That’s not to say that other animals are missing, however, and most animals you might expect to see at a zoo will be found here.
