It is very well embedded into Haifa vegetation and gives a feeling of 'Natural' zoo. Very enjoyable and take into account the summer strong sun.

The Haifa Educational Zoo is a great place to spend a morning or an afternoon with kids. The zoo itself is beautiful located within The Carmel Mountains, in the center of Haifa. There is a fine selection of animals arranged comfortably.

This zoo should be closed and the animals relocated. It is a zoo from the dark ages. I have no doubt that the animals are cared for but the enclosures are primitive and inadequate particularly the Bengal tiger living alone in a tiny glassed-off enclosure....More
